STAY ANXIETY-FREE WITH SEDATION DENTISTRY IN HOUSTON

NEVER MISS A DENTIST APPOINTMENT AGAIN BECAUSE OF DENTAL ANXIETY

Poor hygiene habits and poor diets are the most common culprits for cavities and decay. However, there is a secret villain causing toothaches and oral problems around the world: dental phobia. Fear of the dentist has led too many patients to avoid their dental cleanings and exams — a big and costly mistake. Avoiding the dentist can lead to dental problems that otherwise would have been easily treatable. However, our dentists are here to help you conquer your fear and make visits to our office simple and painless.

Here at Nu Dentistry, we want to make sure you’re always entirely at ease when receiving the care you need. For those who want more than general anesthesia to feel reassured about their treatment, we offer a wide selection of both conscious and unconscious sedation options available upon request. We always want our patients to have the best dental experience possible. Let our dental team ease your fears in our calm and safe dental office. Going to the dental office without fear will completely change your life and get your dental health back on track.

If you have any questions or concerns about sleep dentistry, call our office at (832) 916-4144, and we’ll be happy to answer.

SEDATION DENTISTRY OPTIONS

MAKE YOUR NEXT VISIT TO OUR OFFICE A BREEZE

Sedation makes it possible for fearful patients to not only go to the dentist but to undergo any procedures they may have otherwise put off. No matter what type of treatment you need, sedation dentistry can help alleviate your excessive worries. We offer multiple sedation techniques to help calm your anxieties and make your trip to the dentist stress- and pain-free. Your safety is our #1 priority. Before offering any dental sedation, we will thoroughly review your medical history. We want to make sure that your dental anxiety treatment option will be safe for you. Our team will monitor you throughout your procedure to ensure that everything runs smoothly. Give us a call today so that we can help you decide which sedation treatment is best for you. Our sedation options include:

NITROUS OXIDE

Nitrous Oxide, or more commonly known as “laughing gas,” is a colorless, sweet-smelling gas administered through a mask to help patients of all needs and ages relax. It has a euphoric effect and will not put you to sleep. This option is great for patients who are nervous during dental cleaning appointments.

ORAL SEDATION

Oral Sedation, which is mildly stronger than laughing gas, is administered in pill form. Your pill should be taken around an hour before treatment so that it fully kicks in during your procedure. Oral sedation is a conscious sedation method. However, it may make you feel tired and relaxed enough to fall asleep naturally in the dental chair. You will be able to communicate with your sedation dentist, though you may not remember much of your treatment.

IV SEDATION

Patients with extreme dental fear or anxiety often select this option. IV Sedation is also an excellent option for those who would like multiple procedures performed in a single day, such as multiple extractions, implants, or root canals. It is given intravenously to offer a maximum level of relaxation. There are two levels of IV sedation: “twilight” and “deep” sedation. Twilight sedation leaves patients awake, though somewhat loopy, and likely to fall asleep. Deep sedation is a form of unconscious sedation.

SAME-DAY DENTAL PROCEDURES

WE MAKE SURE YOU NEVER HAVE TO WAIT TO GET THE TREATMENT YOU NEED

Major dental procedures can take a lot of time to complete. When multiple treatments are needed, it can take way too much time to get them done separately. However, sedation dentistry allows you to comfortably get a brand new smile in a single visit with same-day dental procedures.

Oral sedation allows you to stay awake and puts your mind at ease throughout your procedures. For patients who prefer it, we can use IV sedation to keep you asleep throughout your procedures. Your time with us will be over before you know it! Our sedation dentists can help you decide which method is right for your needs.

Save yourself time and discomfort by having most of your procedures finished in a single appointment! With sedation dentistry, we can make your time in our office as efficient as possible without putting a strain on your daily life. If you’re ready to schedule your treatments, call our office at (832) 916-4144 today!

    The Best Dentist in Houston

    Sandra Archuletta //
    We have been looking for a family dentist for a long time, we have tried a bunch of places but nothing felt quite like home. Not too long ago we stumbled upon Nu Dentistry and met Dr. Ali. Not only was he professional, kind, and gentle, but he always finds a way to fit us in when we need an appointment. He’s also pretty funny! I appreciate that he takes the time to explain what he’s doing, before he does it. That really puts me at ease.

    Part of the Family

    Anthony Fernandez //
    When I come in for an exam, Dr. Alrajab makes me feel like I’m a part of his family. I haven’t had a single cavity or filling done since I started coming here, which is a real change from my last hygienist.

    Anxiety Has Kept Me Away...

    Johnathan Smitts //
    I usually have such huge anxiety when I go to a dentist appointment, which means I always put off visits until the last minute to disastrous consequences. However, Dr. Loggins helped me with sedation, so the entire process was a breeze!

    Never Thought I'd Say It...

    Alexandra Jansen //
    I never thought I’d say it, but going to the dentist is actually fun now. I recently came in for a root canal, and I got to sit back and catch up on Stranger Things without any pain!
