Personalized Sedation Options

We understand that every patient is different, and no two patients will require the exact same treatments or care. That's why we offer multiple kinds of sedation to accommodate every client.

Choose from Our Sedation Methods:

  • Oral Conscious Sedation: With oral conscious sedation, you are awake throughout the entire procedure, though in a much more relaxed state. You are given a pill to take one hour before your appointment time, which will ensure that it will take effect at the time of the procedure.
  • IV Sedation: Unlike oral conscious sedation, IV sedation is administered at the time of your appointment. Since it is delivered intravenously, the effects are felt immediately and can be adjusted by your dentist during the procedure.
  • Nitrous Oxide: Also known as "laughing gas," nitrous oxide is breathed in through a mask, and the effects are immediate. The gas gives you a feeling of euphoria during the entire procedure, driving away pain and making your dental appointment much more pleasurable.

Prior to the dental procedure, Dr. Sharon Minott-Warren will discuss your options with you and determine what type of sedation is best suited to meet your needs. Her team will educate you on the benefits of each type, assisting you in making an informed decision. You shouldn't have to fear a visit to the dentist. Count on our Houston periodontist to care for your oral health.

Top Advantages of Choosing Sedation Dentistry

Sedation dentistry offers several benefits for our Houston-area patients, including:

  1. Alleviate Dental Anxiety: Sedation helps alleviate anxiety and fear associated with dental procedures, enabling patients to receive necessary treatments without undue stress.
  2. Effective Pain Management: Sedation techniques ensure that patients experience minimal to no discomfort during dental procedures, promoting a more comfortable and relaxed treatment experience.
  3. Comfortable Dental Experience: Sedation allows patients to remain calm and at ease throughout the dental procedure, creating a more pleasant and stress-free environment.
  4. Efficient Treatment Sessions: With sedation, dentists can often perform complex or lengthy procedures in a single session, reducing the need for multiple appointments and saving the patient time and inconvenience.
  5. Improved Patient Cooperation: Sedation can help patients, particularly children or individuals with special needs, remain still and cooperative during dental treatments, making it easier for the dentist to perform the necessary procedures effectively.
  6. Suppress Unpleasant Memories: Certain sedation methods can induce partial or complete memory loss of the dental procedure, helping patients with dental phobia or traumatic dental experiences avoid further psychological distress.

It's essential to consult with our Houston dentists to discuss the most suitable sedation option based on individual needs and the specific dental procedure.
