Don’t Let Dental Anxiety Damage Your Oral Health

Many patients avoid the dental work they need because they fear the dental chair, or just aren’t comfortable in the dental environment. In fact, dental phobia often ranks as one of the most common fears in surveys. Dr. Amaning and our team here at Amazing Dental Solutions understand that you might need a little help relaxing so you can overcome your fear and reclaim great dental health. That’s why we offer a variety of sedation dentistry options.

If you have dental anxiety, an overactive gag reflex, or difficulty getting numb with normal dental anesthesia, or if you have a disability or other condition that makes it hard to tolerate sitting in the dental chair, sedation dentistry in our comfortable, unintimidating office environment could be just what you need. Whether you just need to take the edge off to get through your routine cleaning or you want to be completely asleep for a more complex procedure, we can offer sedation anesthesia near you in Houston, TX.

Nitrous Oxide Gas

Frequently called laughing gas, nitrous oxide won’t actually make most patients laugh. Instead, this sweet-smelling, colorless gas will help you feel calm and euphoric. This mildest version of sedation dentistry is a great option for patients who want to stay conscious but just need a little help coping with their dental visit. With nitrous oxide, you won’t be fully asleep, but will feel warm and relaxed throughout your appointment. It can help local dental anesthesia (numbing injections) work better, and it can suppress the gag reflex in sensitive patients. It’s an incredibly safe option that won’t leave you feeling groggy afterward.

Oral Conscious Sedation

Don’t you wish you could just take a pill that could make you forget your dental visit? With oral conscious sedation, it’s possible! In this version of sedation dentistry, we’ll provide medications that will allow your mind to drift blissfully away while we work. You’ll still be responsive and able to answer questions but enjoy a twilight state of consciousness. Many patients feel so relaxed they take a nap in the chair!

IV Sedation

We want every visit to Amazing Dental Solutions to be a positive, easy experience. To provide the best possible care, we offer intravenous (IV) sedation dentistry to ensure complete comfort throughout even long or complex procedures. This option is perfect for long appointments with multiple treatments performed at once. It’s also ideal for patients with severe dental fear, or who cannot tolerate dental appointments due to disabilities or other conditions. We’ll couple your sedation with local dental anesthesia to ensure a completely pain-free experience. You’ll be able to relax in total comfort and sleep through your entire visit. IV sedation is fast-acting and rapidly reversible when needed.
