What Kinds Of Sedation Dentistry Do You Offer?

We offer three kinds of sedation

  • Nitrous Oxide Sedation
  • Oral Sedation
  • IV Sedation

We will work with you to determine which form of sedation is right for you and your health.

Nitrous Oxide Sedation

Nitrous Oxide Sedation is our most popular form of sedation. Commonly referred to as laughing gas, Nitrous Oxide is a gentle, relaxing gas that you breathe in through a mask. It is completely safe and effective. The gas helps you feel at ease and relieves tension. However, you will still be able to respond to instructions, and if you fall asleep you can easily be awoken. The sedative effect is completely temporarily and wears off as soon as the supply of gas is ended. This leaves you able to drive home after an appointment.

Oral Sedation 

Oral Sedation is another option. We prescribe you a mild sedative medicine to take before your procedure. You will likewise feel at ease during the procedure, and may experience a phenomenon known as “lost time.” Essentially that means you may not remember the procedure. This is a great middle option for people facing dental anxiety. The effect can take some time to wear off, so you may need someone to drive you to and from your appointment.

IV Sedation

IV Sedation is an option if you prefer not to remember any of your procedure. With IV Sedation, you receive a sedative into your bloodstream intravenously. This is extremely helpful for people with more intense dental phobias, bad gag reflexes, or for longer procedures. Antoine Dental Center is one of the very few dental offices in Houston that are certified to offer IV Sedation.

Whatever option you choose, our top-notch team will first determine if you are healthy enough for sedation. We will also answer any questions you may have about dental sedation, as well as your procedure. We believe effective dental work requires effective communication. 

Our goal is for you to feel at ease from the moment you walk through our door, and so we offer snacks, beverages, pillows, and blankets to our patients. In addition, you can listen to music or even watch television throughout your procedure. We also promise to keep our office a lecture-free zone, so you don’t have to stress about hearing a lecture before your procedure.

How much does dental sedation cost?

The average price for sedation in our office is $750. Sedation is useful to relax patients during dental procedures.
