Sedation Dentistry in Porter, TX
At Porter Smiles, we use sedative drugs that are safe and effective. These drugs help calm and relax a patient
prior to and during their dental procedure.
It is normal to experience some anxiety or angst when visiting the dental office. We understand that visiting the dentist can be a frightening experience for some patients. Thus, we provide sedation for those who
experience moderate to higher levels of anxiety.
Dental sedation options
Some of the main options that have been used for over a century to help patients relax include:
- Nitrous oxide, or laughing gas, A mild sedative that can help you relax if you have mild or moderate anxiety.
- IV sedation for those who have high levels of anxiety.
Our team of experienced dental anaesthesiologists can safely
perform this form of sedation.
When choosing sedation drugs, patients will be provided with a prescription for their medication. And detailed instructions about the procedure. We safely provide minimal to moderate sedation for our patients who require it. Patients remain conscious, but extremely relaxed while under sedation. A friend or family member will need to bring you to and from the clinic. As you may be incapable of driving yourself back home due to the sedatives.
