Sedation Dentistry - Houston, TX

Takes Away the Stress

For many, visiting the dentist is stressful, but for others, it’s completely terrifying. Dr. Castleberry himself had a very negative experience at the dentist as a child, which is why he has dedicated his career to providing the most comfortable care possible. For anxious patients, he can help soothe their nervous minds and protect them from pain using sedation dentistry. With the techniques outlined below, you can finally get the care you need without the worry. They will change how you think about going to the dentist! To see how sedation could improve your next dental visit, contact us today.

Oral Conscious Sedation

For those who experience mild to moderate dental anxiety, Dr. Castleberry can prescribe a sedative pill for them to take about an hour before their scheduled appointment. By the time they actually sit in the treatment chair, they will already be completely physically and mentally relaxed. This method helps time fly by very quickly, and for most, they have little to no memory of their dental visit afterward, practically making it a dream.

Nitrous Oxide Sedation

Do you or your child need just a little help to feel comfortable at the dentist? Nitrous oxide is a colorless, odorless gas that has been used to help nervous dental patients for over 100 years. Here, all a patient has to do is inhale the gas through a small nasal mask to achieve a feeling of warmth, happiness, and even euphoria while in the chair. Better yet, once the mask is removed, the gas’ effects wear off almost instantly, allowing a patient to go straight back to their day.

IV Sedation

If you’ve avoided the dentist for years because of fear, IV sedation can help finally remove this barrier to a healthy smile. This is the strongest and fastest acting sedation method we provide, and it can help even the most fearful patient have a smooth and stress-free dental experience. A powerful sedative is administered directly into the bloodstream, and within moments, a patient will slip into a very deep state of relaxation. This approach is also useful for those who want to have multiple procedures completed in one visit in order to save time.
