At Carey Dentistry, we are a relaxing, calm environment because we understand that many patients feel uncomfortable or nervous about visiting the dentist. In addition, Dr. Deborah Carey offers several options for sedation dentistry in Houston, Texas, to keep our patients comfortable during their treatments. If you are nervous about your appointment, we invite you to call us at 281-859-5637 and discuss your concerns with us. If our dentist determines that you can benefit from sedation dentistry, we can make the necessary preparations to be ready for your next appointment.
Sedation dentistry is a wonderful and safe choice for patients who experience anxiety or nerves when it comes to their dental treatment. Sedation dentistry involves using an approved sedative medication that will help you feel calm and relaxed during your visit to our office. There are several types of sedation medicine available based on your individual needs, circumstances, and preferences. At our practice, we offer:
- Nitrous Oxide (Gas): This safe and effective method of dental sedation has temporary effects, so you can drive yourself to and from your visit.
- Local Anesthetic (Injectable): Delivered through a syringe, this anesthesia prevents pain and discomfort in the applied area; however, the effects can last for hours.
- Oraqix® (Topical): You do not have to worry about shots or needles with this topical application, which lasts up to 20 minutes.
Sedation dentistry will help you feel more relaxed during your dental treatments. Our caring and experienced dentist and team will monitor you throughout your treatment to ensure that you remain safe. If you have had a negative dental experience in the past, suffer from dental anxiety, or simply feel nervous about a treatment, sedation dentistry can be a great option to make you feel more at ease. Sedation dentistry is also a great option for those who have a difficult time getting numb or who have a strong gag reflex.
