Sedation Dentist Humble
Dental anxiety is a real disorder and affects a large number of children and adults.
Dr. Gregory has a lot of compassion when it comes to the treatment of patients with anxiety. You don’t have to let fear keep you from caring for the health of your mouth and the beauty of your smile.
We offer various forms of “twilight sleep” for patients including:
- Laughing gas (nitrous oxide)
- Pill-form sedation (oral sedation)
- Intravenous (IV) sedation
Patients can show up for their visit and take a nice nap while their dental work is taken care of.
All of Dr. Gregory’s patients are breathing on their own during this “nap” which is a much safer form of sedation than “general sedation” done in a hospital environment. Most patients don’t remember the procedure afterwards and wake up in their own bed at home under the care of their loved ones.
Patients with severe anxiety may even need to “nap” during routine dental cleanings until they gradually move toward a more confident and even enjoyable dental experience!
Depending on the type of sedation you choose, it might be best to have someone available to drive you home after your treatment. You may also consider not returning to work that day. Dr. Gregory will be able to give you good advice on that topic when you discuss your sedation options.
UPDATE: We now have in an “In House” anesthesiologist! This offers several important advantages for you during your procedures.
