Even with all of modern dentistry’s new materials, high technology, and gentle approach, over half of our population (almost 145 million Americans) avoids dental care out of fear of pain–now because of sedation dentistry this is a thing of the past. Because Dr. Stephen and his staff are so understanding and non-judgmental, we offer an absolutely pain-free,safe, and welcoming dental experience.
Imagine not being afraid to go to the dentist.Imagine being able to accomplish all your dental care which has built up over the years in as little as one or two appointments. Imagine being able to smile with confidence and chew your food without pain. No wonder so many of our patients attest to the success of being sedated in our office.
Dental fear is often caused by bad past dental experiences, severe gag reflexes, fear of needles or the painful sound of the dental drill. Someone with a dental phobia will avoid dental care at all costs until either a physical problem or the psychological burden of the phobia becomes overwhelming. When you finally gather the inner courage to make a call to a dentist, you must be greeted by dental professionals who understand the very real nature of your fears. Our team supports your unique needs as a phobic patient from the moment you make the first call. We listen to your story and appreciate the magnitude of your fear. We then discuss the easiest and safest way to bring you the comfort and care you need. We design a treatment plan in which all treatment (in most cases) can be completed in one comprehensive visit.
Depending on your level of stress and anxiety, out Houston office provides different levels of sedation: you can be sedated heavily or just enough to be unaware of the treatment, as if you were relaxing. With an optimal level of sedation, you’ll wake up refreshed, with little or no memory of what was accomplished.
We can remove hopeless teeth, do fillings, repair chipped teeth, place crowns, treat sore gums, whiten yellow or stained teeth, replace dentures and partials, perform tooth-saving root canals, place implants (replacement roots) and more.
People with very busy schedules can get the dental care they need, easily and quickly.
Sedation dentistry in our office is a safe way to reduce the fatigue of extended dental treatment requiring long visits.
