The Woodlands and Houston, TX
If fear of the dentist has kept you from seeking the general and cosmetic dentistry services you deserve, it may be time to consider sedation dentistry. Sedation dentistry is a safe and effective way to help people who are nervous about dental services become completely relaxed prior to their treatment. Houston sedation dentist Dr. Scott Young offers both oral sedation with pills and nitrous oxide, and can customize your level of sedation to meet your specific needs.
Candidates for Sedation Dentistry
Ideal candidates for sedation dentistry are often those who suffer from dental phobia. However, sedation dentistry can also be very useful for people who have:
- Sensitive teeth
- A high tolerance for pain medications
- An over-active gag reflex
- An aversion to needles or dental instruments
Sedation dentistry is commonly used during longer procedures to help reduce discomfort, but can also be used for things such as general cleanings or tooth fillings. How and when sedation can benefit you is best determined during your consultation with Dr. Young.
