Everyone needs to go to the dentist from time to time to maintain their oral health, but many avoid even routine procedures because of fear or trauma connected to negative past experiences. Fortunately, Dr. Mosby is able to help all types of patients enjoy calm and cool appointments thanks to sedation dentistry in Kingwood. Using the methods detailed below, he can soothe racing minds and prevent physical discomfort at the same time, making it easier than ever for people to get the care they deserve.
This method combines nitrous oxide (“laughing gas”) and oxygen to help patients quickly feel warm, calm, and slightly numb all over during their appointment. The gas is administered via a small nasal mask, and the amount of nitrous oxide a patient is exposed to can be adjusted based on their comfort level. Fast acting and fast to go away, this approach enables patients to get what they need and then go straight back to their day without any lasting side effects.
IV sedation is the most potent type we offer, so we typically recommend it for patients with extreme dental fear or those who require a lengthy/complicated procedure. It can also be a big help for those who have physical issues that make sitting for long periods uncomfortable. The sedative is administered by a licensed anesthesiologist through a tiny injection in the hand or arm, and almost instantly, a patient will fall into a deep state of relaxation.Learn More About IV Sedation
