Sedation Dentistry

Sedation Dentistry in Katy, TX

For patients that experience anxiety when it comes to dental treatment, Dr. Teeth Dental Care is proud to offer sedation dentistry in Katy, TX. At our practice, we use a safe, well-known form of sedation dentistry known as conscious sedation using nitrous oxide. Nitrous oxide is commonly known as “laughing gas” and has no unpleasant side effects, works quickly and is hypoallergenic. It can be easy to administer to patients of any age and helps provide a more relaxing experience.

Laughing Gas Sedation Dentistry Katy

Nitrous oxide is administered using a small mask and is mixed with oxygen. It is often referred to as laughing gas due to the effect it can have on patients, providing a feeling of euphoria and happiness. Nitrous oxide is completely harmless, and once treatment has been completed the effects will start to wear off.

General Sedation Dentistry in Katy, TX

During your appointment at Dr. Teeth, your Katy sedation dentist will administer the nitrous oxide using a facial mask which is attached to an electronic device with a mixture of nitrous oxide and oxygen. This mixture will be inhaled through the facial mask, and the effects can be felt within minutes.

Once your dental treatment has been completed, pure oxygen will be administered, quickly diminishing the effects of the sedation and allowing you to continue with your day-to-day activities.
