Our Sedation Dentistry in Houston Can Help Ease Your Anxiety

John Krell, DDS, offers sedation dentistry to patients in Houston who are nervous about undergoing dental procedures. Whether you have had a bad experience in the past or are nervous about having dental work done, Dr. Krell is a sedation dentist who both understands and offers a variety of safe and efficient options. His calm and gentle demeanor puts many patients at ease right away. However, for those who need a little extra help, Dr. Krell offers oral conscious sedation and nitrous oxide (laughing gas). Many patients actively avoid the dentist because of their anxiety. By removing that barrier, you can become a more proactive dental patient and stop neglecting your oral health.

The Benefits of Sedation Dentistry

One of the biggest benefits of sedation dentistry is its ability to eliminate discomfort, which in turn helps to ease patient’s anxiety over treatment. Often overlooked is another important benefit: more dental work can be accomplished when you are sedated. This means fewer office visits - and even less anxiety. Fewer office visits also translate into reduced costs. Because you are comfortable and sedated, your sedation dentist can work faster as well. This means your total time in the chair will likely be shorter.

Sedation dentistry is also extremely safe. In fact, nitrous oxide has been safely used in sedation dentistry for many years. With both gas and oral sedation methods, you are conscious throughout the procedure, yet you'll feel no discomfort whatsoever. Nitrous oxide is administered through a mask while oral conscious sedation is administered via a pill.
