We offer oral and intravenous sedation for anxious patients or patients who want to have a lot of dentistry completed during a long appointment.
Some anxiety surrounding a visit to the dentist is normal. Most people feel a bit apprehensive when coming into a new situation or when they are anticipating some discomfort. At the office of Tamara S. Osina, D.D.S., Dr. Osina offers sedation dentistry for those who feel more than a little apprehension. We understand that some patients may need more than the usual anesthetic to feel comfortable while undergoing dental treatments. For patients who would like to accomplish a lot of dental work during one appointment, sedation dentistry is a big plus.
Ease Anxiety with Sedation Dentistry
There are multiple options with sedation dentistry. Dr. Osina offers both oral and intravenous sedation, as well as nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas. A simple pill taken before the dental procedure will ease anxiety and make you comfortable and relaxed during your appointment. Your well-being is of top importance to us, so monitoring equipment is always used as a precautionary measure for our patients.
Conscious sedation is a very safe method for those who need a little extra help with relaxation. Nitrous oxide is also a good choice for relaxation. Some people fall asleep while others feel pleasantly relaxed while remaining conscious throughout the procedure.
For those who have high levels of anxiety or who prefer to get an extensive amount of work done in one appointment, using the intravenous method of sedation dentistry may be more appropriate. Your dental work will be carried out while you enjoy restful sleep.
Advantages of Sedation Dentistry
Today’s lifestyles demand that everyone make the best use of their time. When your dental work calls for several visits to the dental office you time is adversely impacted. The ability to get more work done in fewer visits is one of the bonuses of sedation dentistry. If you hesitate to get a smile makeover due to anxiety or concern about long or complicated dental procedures, sedation dentistry can alleviate your concerns. You will be comfortable during the procedures, unaware of the time that is passing.
Dr. Osina is committed to providing excellent dental services to the residents in Fulshear, Missouri City, Needville, Stafford, and Houston, TX as well as the surrounding areas. Do not let any anxiety deter you from achieving the beautiful, healthy smile of your dreams.
