oral_sedation, Houston, TX

Many patients in the area of Houston, TX may feel anxious when it comes to visiting the dentist. The team at Royal Dental understands this, which is why we are excited to offer solutions such as sedation dentistry. Sedation dentistry provides patients with ways to feel relaxed before and during their dental appointment to ensure their experience in the dental chair is positive.

 

Reasons for sedation dentistry

There are several reasons why a patient may consider the benefits of sedation dentistry. Sedation dentistry is good for:

• Patients with mild to severe anxieties about visiting the dentist

• Patients who are having extended treatments with long times in the dental chair

• Patients with strong gag reflexes or discomfort with others in their personal space

• Patients with medical conditions that can make it difficult to stay still during treatments

Methods of sedation available

At Royal Dental, we offer two methods of sedation for patient consideration:

• Oral conscious sedation – with oral conscious sedation, patients are prescribed a medication that they take prior to their appointment, approximately thirty minutes before they arrive. Patients are transported to the dental office and are relaxed when they arrive and throughout their treatment. They return home to rest and may have little to no recollection of the appointment.

• Nitrous oxide – for patients with mild to moderate anxieties, nitrous oxide may be an acceptable solution. Nitrous oxide is a special gas that patients can inhale through the nose to relax them almost immediately and throughout their treatment and can be easily reversed with the administration of oxygen so patients can drive back to work, school, or home.

Orthodontics houston tx | Royal DentalAt Royal Dental, patients in the area of Houston, TX and beyond can enjoy quality dental care at one of our eight conveniently located practices. Our dentists are committed to providing a wide range of solutions for the smile, including orthodontic work.

Understanding orthodontics

Orthodontics is a field of dentistry that focuses on the alignment of the teeth in the dental arch and within the bite. For many years, orthodontics only consisted of traditional braces, where metal brackets and wires were used in repositioning the smile. Fortunately, there are alternatives that have come along, including clear aligner therapy. The team of Royal Dental offers both solutions for patient consideration.

Traditional Braces

For patients with moderate to severe misalignment, traditional braces are often the best treatment option. Traditional braces start with metal brackets being glued to the front of the teeth, which are then connected with a single wire across the dental arch. These are adjusted regularly to help reposition the teeth within the dental arch over the course of several months. These are the most common orthodontic treatments used for children, teenagers, and adults seeking better alignment of the arch and bite.

Invisalign orthodontics

Patients who want a more discreet option may want to consider the benefits of Invisalign orthodontics. Invisalign is sometimes referred to as clear aligner therapy. This method utilizes special plastic trays that are custom-made in a series. Each tray is worn for two weeks until patients reach the end of their treatment—and have obtained their newly aligned smile! Invisalign is often chosen by our patients who have mild to moderate misalignment because it is discreet, easy to use, and effective in achieving the desired results quickly and effectively without the use of brackets and wires.
