There are many aspects to a person’s personality and appearance that make them unique, and one thing that makes someone unique are their fears. Some have a fear of heights while others have a fear of spiders, but the common denominator is a fear that people feel as though they may not be able to overcome. One fear that many people share is a fear of the dentist. Having a fear of the dentist can be mild, while other cases are so crippling that patients may refuse to get any sort of dental work done. Because Dr. Paul Davey understands the fear that many people have, he is able to keep his most fearful patients calm by offering sedation dentistry at his Sugar Land, TX dental office.
One way we are able to keep you worry-free during your appointment with Dr. Davey is by offering oral conscious sedation. With this form of sedation, you will be prescribed a pill to take before your appointment. With oral conscious sedation, you are able to stay awake during your appointment, but you will feel sleepy and calm while feeling absolutely no pain. We will take this opportunity to work on your smile, making it healthy!
Another form of sedation we offer is IV sedation. This is for our patients who experience high anxiety when in a dentist’s chair. With this type of sedation, and anesthesiologist will administer the sedative into your bloodstream, and we will be able to monitor all of your vital signs while your dental work is being performed. With both types of sedation, it is very important to keep in mind that the effects of the sedative will still be in effect when your appointment is over, so it is crucial to get a trusted loved one to bring you home after your appointment. If you feel as though Dr. Davey is able to help you overcome your fear of the dentist with sedation dentistry, contact our office today!
