If you are dreading some upcoming dental treatment, you may want to consider oral conscious sedation.
Sedation is safe
The most important thing to know is that oral conscious sedation or sleep dentistry is perfectly safe.
At Montz and Maher Dental Group, we have been providing sedation since 1997. We offer different levels of sedation and a choice of medication including oral analgesics, nitrous oxide, and IV sedation.
When choosing a type of sedation, it is helpful to consider the type of anxiety (fear of immobility, fear of loss of control, fear of pain, etc), the specific procedure(s) you will undergo, the length of time required to complete the treatment, past experiences during treatment, and any complicating health issues. Call 281-482-1275 to schedule a consultation with Dr. David Montz to discuss your options.
We are sensitive to patients with dental anxiety
Perhaps you have a dentist-wary child who needs it. For simple dental procedures, topical anesthetics are applied to the gums and other tissues reducing sensation. If your child requires more sedation, nitrous oxide, and general anesthesia are both safe options.
We provide compassionate care
Perhaps Mommy is the one who is nervous about her child undergoing dental work. Sorry–we can’t sedate you while your child is being treated–but you can take comfort in the fact that we take excellent care of our youngest patients. We make sure they are relaxed, and understand exactly what is going to happen. Our team of child-friendly dental professionals have been putting children at ease since 1997.
Make sure your everyone in your family sees a dentist regularly
Regular dental check-ups are vital for your child’s lifelong oral health, so it is important that your child has a positive experience during dental visits. If possible, don’t let your child know that you are anxious.
If he/she already knows, explain why your fears are unreasonable and why you are having treatment regardless of your anxiety. Show them how brave Mommy is because she wants her child to have dental health.
