Our gentle, reassuring chairside manner does a lot to put our patients at ease however, some people require a little more than that to be comfortable enough to undergo dental procedures. If you think you are one such person, you do not have to sacrifice your oral health to fear. Come to West Houston Dentistry and let up help you relax in the dental chair. With sedation dentistry, you will feel tranquil and carefree.

Nitrous Oxide

One of the most common types of sedation used in dental offices around the country is nitrous oxide. It is also known as laughing gas. Inhaled along with oxygen through a nosepiece, nitrous oxide is safe and efficient. It relaxes youngsters as well as adults. Though it is a mild sedation, some people fall asleep during procedures under the influence of nitrous oxide. Once the dental procedure is completed the nitrous oxide is turned off and your system is flushed with pure oxygen. Recovery takes only a few minutes.

A visit to the dentist does not need to be a white-knuckle ordeal. With the serene ambiance we provide at West Houston Dentistry along with sedation dentistry, even our most excitable patients have a pleasant experience as they have their dental needs attended to.
