Sedation Dentistry in Clear Lake, TX
Oral sedation dentistry in Houston is a proven method that is quickly becoming a standard technique to relax apprehensive patients. Patients appreciate the simplicity and effectiveness of oral sedation. Most people who undergo sedation dentistry have little or no recollection of their visit. They sometimes think they slept through their treatment. Rest assured oral sedation is a safe technique for you. Your safety is our number one priority. We monitor your vital signs throughout the procedure.
Another benefit to sedation dentistry is you often feel like the dental procedure lasts only a few minutes, when in fact it might have taken hours to perform. Consequently, complex dental procedures such as smile makeovers, Implants with bone augmentation or extensive rebuilding procedures that often necessitate multiple visits can be performed in fewer appointments.
If you are hesitant to alter the appearance of your smile because you are afraid or anxious about undergoing long or complicated dental procedures, sedation dentistry (offered by our dentist near Clear Lake, Texas) can make you feel comfortable during the treatment process and help you achieve a smile you will absolutely love!
Sedation dentistry patients are more likely to receive recommended routine care. As a result, they are less likely to neglect their oral health or allow oral health problems escalate to the point when drastic dental treatments become necessary.
IV Sedation is sometimes called “conscious sedation” because you remain conscious but in a “twilight sleep”. This is an effective and extremely safe method used to manage patient’s moderate to severe levels of dental fear. This technique can also be used for patients who are not able to physically or behaviorally cooperate during dental treatment.
Dr. Gordon has been trained and is certified by the Texas State Board of Dental Examiners to administer in-office I.V. Sedation. Your vital signs are monitored throughout the entire treatment. A major benefit of some of these IV drugs is amnesia. The patient will have no memory of most, or all of the dental treatment. An additional advantage is the reasonably fast recovery time. After treatment, you will return home to relax for the remainder of the day. You should be able to resume normal activities within 24 hours.
