    Sedation Dentistry in Pearland, TX

    How Does Sedation Dentistry Work?

    Sedation dentistry is a technique we use to minimize pain and reduce dental anxiety. It involves the administration of IV or oral sedatives. Since many children and adults feel nervous before getting a dental treatment, using a dental sedative helps calm them throughout their appointment.

    Dental sedation is a safe and effective technique for both children and adults. Our team will monitor the dosage of the sedative agent and ensure that it does not affect your overall health in any way.

    Questions About Sedation Dentistry?

    Types Of Sedation Dentistry In Pearland, TX

    Our state-of-the-art practice offers two main types of dental sedation in Pearland, TX. They include oral sedation and intravenous (IV) sedation.

    Oral Sedation

    For moderate levels of dental anxiety, we offer oral medications to help you relax during the treatment. The sedative takes effect quickly, making you feel calm before treatment. You will remain conscious during the treatment process but won’t experience anxiety, pain, or discomfort. The effects of oral sedation may last for a few hours, so it is better to have someone to accompany you for the appointment.

    Intravenous (IV) Sedation

    Intravenous sedation is the most potent type of sedation dentistry in Pearland, TX. It involves injecting a sedative drug directly into your bloodstream. It takes effect quickly, putting you in a state of ease and comfort. IV sedation is very strong, so we only use it for extreme cases of dental phobia. Our dentists will control the dose to ensure your safety throughout the treatment. You will feel drowsy after the procedure since the effect of IV sedation can last for 12 to 24 hours.

    Having a comfortable oral care experience can help you relax during future visits as well. That’s why our Pearland, TX, practice provides sedation dentistry as it:
