Sedation Dentistry – The Woodlands, TX
Safe, Proven Sedation for Anxious Patients
At Solomon Dental Group, we realize that some people are genuinely afraid of getting dental work. Are you or your child anxious about visiting our office in The Woodlands? Although it may seem easier to avoid going to the dentist altogether, waiting for dental treatment you need can have a detrimental effect on your oral health, cause you unnecessary pain, and cost you significantly more money to fix the problem later. Solomon Dental Group has been serving the community for over 15 years, and we’ve shown our commitment to each patient’s comfort in that time with proven sedation options. Don’t let dental anxiety keep you from receiving the care your smile needs.

Oral Conscious Sedation
Sometimes laughing gas isn’t enough to take away the feelings of fear, which is why we offer oral conscious sedation for adults. Hours before the appointment begins, you ingest a pill, and by the time you arrive for your visit, you’ll be perfectly relaxed. Although you will likely remain awake and able to respond, you probably won’t remember details of the appointment. However, keep in mind that with oral conscious sedation you will need to have a ride with a friend or family member both to and from our office because the effects can take a few hours to subside.
Nitrous Oxide Sedation
For milder cases of dental anxiety, children, or routine procedures, we use nitrous oxide, commonly called laughing gas, that is breathed in through a nasal mask throughout the procedure. Our caring, skilled team will check in with you to make sure that you’re completely comfortable and can adjust the nitrous oxide as necessary. This solution is safe to administer to children and quickly wears off, allowing you to resume normal activities after the appointment ends.
Whether you’re having a complex procedure or you have severe dental anxiety, perhaps intravenous (IV) sedation is the best solution for you. Stronger than nitrous oxide and oral conscious sedation, IV sedation doesn’t exactly put you to sleep like general anesthesia, but it’s not uncommon for patients to feel so relaxed that they do end up sleeping. Throughout the entire process, our team will closely monitor your vitals and make any necessary adjustments for your comfort. Basically, you can trust our caring team to keep you and your loved ones safe and make sure that you have a positive experience.
