Sedation Dentistry to Put Your Fears at Ease
- Posted on: Mar 31 2015
If you experience dental phobia, you’re not alone. Many people in the Bellaire area of Houston avoid getting important dental treatments out of fear. Unfortunately, this only leads to more serious oral health issues down the road. The good news is that with sedation dentistry, you can get over your dental fears once and for all.
Sedation dentistry involves administering a sedative agent prior to your dental treatment in order to place you in a more relaxed state. This will help you feel more comfortable throughout your time at our dental office.
There are many benefits to choosing sedation dentistry, including:
- Alleviation of dental anxiety
- Improved comfort and relaxation
- Ability to have multiple dental procedures performed at once
- Very little, if any, memory of the treatment
- Suppression of gag reflex
Dr. Heather Fleschler offers two types of sedation dentistry options:
- Nitrous oxide gas
- Oral conscious sedation
If you prefer an all-natural alternative to sedation dentistry, ask Dr. Fleschler about NuCalm, a new treatment that we offer to our Bellaire patients.
