Sedation Dentistry for Anxiety-Free Treatment

Or call

For many of our patients at Dental Care of Texas, a small shot to quickly number an area is enough; however, some patients need more than that. Whether it’s due to a previous bad dental experience or a lengthy, extensive treatment, we want our patients to be comfortable. As a result, we offer these sedation options:

  • Laughing Gas – This relaxing gas is breathed in and helps you to relax during treatment. It is very safe and leaves your system within five minutes of being turned off at the end of the appointment. You don’t even to take time off from work or school or find someone to drive you home afterward. This option is used by a high percentage of our patients.
  • Oral Sedation – Laughing Gas is not sufficient, a pill can be given to you in our office approximately one hour before the treatment begins. This medication, along with laughing gas, helps you become more sleepy and relaxed. Your sedated state of mind lets you respond better to dental treatment. With you being calm and comfortable, our dentists can work more efficiently. This option does require you to bring someone to drive you and to secure time off for the remainder of the day to recover. Our doctors have earned a special permit to provide this service safely in our practices.
  • IV Conscious Sedation – This is the highest level of sedation offered in our dental office and is not needed often. We commonly utilize IV for wisdom teeth surgeries and extremely fearful patients, as well as for children who need extensive care. The doctor monitors the patient during the entire procedure. IV Sedation also requires a person to drive you to and from the appointment, as well as remain in the office during the appointment. Time off from work will be necessary for an expedient recovery.

In addition, we offer stereo headphones to help take your mind off the sounds and sights associated with dental treatment.

Your dental health is our main concern. We will do whatever it takes to make you comfortable. We appreciate the opportunity to be a partner with you in establishing your long-term dental health!

What our patients say

I have been going to Dental Care of Texas for a little over a year now, and I love it. They get you back and all fixed up in a jiffy. I am currently in ortho too and they are getting my teeth exactly where I want them to be. The prices are great and the staff are the best. I would and do recommend Dental Care of Texas to everyone I know.

I have nothing but great things to say about Dental Care of Texas. Definitely most affordable around the area, and also have payment plans that help single moms like myself. Staff is always nice and very helpful. I have another kid that's going to need braces soon and I will be returning to Dental Care of Texas, without a doubt.

Been with this dentist office for 18 years! This office has not much of a turnover, and that says a lot; mostly same staff for years. The front office staff has been very helpful and knowledgeable when it comes to scheduling my appointments or working with my insurance, and I know I can trust the care I receive from their hygienists and dentists. All of that is really just a bonus to the awesome convenience of being able to go in on a Saturday!
