Finally, stress-free dentistry for you and your little ones! Summit Dental Center™ is proud to offer sedation dentistry to patients in Houston, TX, who suffer from severe dental anxiety.
What Is A Sedation Dentist?
Sedation dentistry uses pharmacological agents to relax the patient during a dental procedure. It allows the patient to go into the appointment with less anxiety and less fear. Summit specializes in all forms of sedation including IV Sedation.
What are the Benefits of Sedation Dentistry?
Sedation dentistry has grown popular for the past few years due to the numerous benefits it offers:
- Multiple procedures may be accomplished during one visit to the office, thereby reducing stress and anxiety to the patient.
- Sedation dentistry calms the central nervous system, thereby allowing the patient to achieve a level of relaxation that wouldn’t normally be attained while sitting in the dental chair.
- There is no additional out-of-pocket charge for pediatric patients with Texas Medicaid.
About the Sedation Dentistry Procedure
Once you have taken the oral sedative, and it begins to work, you will feel calmer and more relaxed. The dental assistant will be with you all the time and can provide a blanket if you’re cold, answer your questions, and ensure you are comfortable throughout the procedure.
Since you remain awake and alert, you will be able to answer any questions from the dentist. If at any time you begin to feel anxious, your dentist can administer additional sedation such as nitrous oxide. This way even if you have a longer procedure you will be relaxed throughout it.
Our patients who use sedation dentistry are always amazed by how well it works and how time goes by quickly. You will need a friend or family member to drive you home after your appointment, and the rest of the day, you should plan to relax.
Depending on the level of sedation preferred, we can work with the patient to find what would work best, whether it is inhaled, given orally or injected intravenously. Oftentimes we may be able to provide an oral medication that the patient can take prior to the appointment.
