Sedation | Pain-Free Dentistry in Galleria, Houston

For patients who may be nervous or require a lengthy dental procedure, Galleria Smiles offers customized sedation methods. These include:

General Anesthesia

General Anesthesia will put you in a deep sleep during your procedure. You won't feel any discomfort and this allows the dentist to comfortably perform your procedure. 

Oral conscious sedation

Compared to general anesthesia, oral conscious sedation allows you to stay awake during your procedure. You will need to take an oral sedative prior to your appointment, which will take effect by the time you arrive. Depending on your needs, the dentist may also add nitrous oxide to increase the calming effects.

IV Conscious Sedation

Since this form of sedation is given via IV, the effects are felt rather quickly. However, you will still be conscious during your procedure, yet in a fully calm and relaxed state. 

Nitrous oxide 

Better known as laughing gas, nitrous oxide is administered to the patient via a facemask. You will be in a euphoric-like state and completely relaxed.

Galleria Smiles will review your medical history and needs to determine the ideal sedation method. Call our office at 610-691-6522 to schedule a consultation.
