Your Houston Sedation Dentist Dr. Kathy Frazar Understands Dental Phobia
For most people who are nervous, our team’s friendly manner, comfort amenities, and gentle approach to dentistry – in which we talk patients through their procedures, treat them at their own pace, and stop when they ask us – are enough to help our patients feel relaxed. For a fearful few, however, no amenities or gentleness can ease their jittery feelings. For those patients, Dr. Frazar offers sedation dentistry, also known as sleep dentistry.
Sedation dentistry is effective and extremely safe. Dr. Frazar prescribes a sedative medication that is applied, inhaled, or ingested just before your treatment. While you won’t be unconscious, you will feel sleepy, comfortable, and pain-free while we provide the treatments you need.
We usually offer sedation dentistry to patients undergoing complex or extensive treatments, but Dr. Frazar may recommend it if you want to repair or enhance your smile despite your fear. She also offers sedation dentistry to patients who want to have several treatments done in one visit. The type of sedation you need depends on the extent of your fear and complexity of the procedure. Dr. Frazar can recommend the following treatments in our Bellaire dental office:
