Sedation Dentistry for Jasper, TX

Southeast Texas Dental Center offers Comfortable Care

At Southeast Texas Dental Center we realize that some people are apprehensive about dental treatment.  Since your comfort is one of our highest priorities, we offer several methods to help you relax during your visit. Count on the friendly professionals at our Jasper dental practice to give you compassionate care and administer your sedation--and your treatments--with a gentle approach.

Nitrous Oxide

Nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, has been used in the medical and dental field for over 100 years with a long record of safety. This commonly used gas helps patients relax, reduces any sensations of discomfort during treatment, as well as makes time go by faster. A wonderful feature of nitrous oxide is that after the procedure the patient has no drowsiness or hangover effect. You can drive and resume your schedule when you leave our Jasper dental office. Because of its favorable qualities, few side effects, and ability to use on almost all patients from young to old, including medically compromised patients, it has often been referred to as the “perfect” form of sedation for dental patients.

Oral Sedation

Oral sedation is a slightly deeper level of sedation than nitrous oxide, causing you to enter a peaceful state in which you’ll remain conscious so that you can respond to our team, but you’ll remember little about the procedure afterward. About an hour after taking your sedative pill, you will be comfortable and relaxed, often to the point of falling asleep. With oral sedation you will need to have a friend or family member drive you to and from your sedation dentistry appointment at Southeast Texas Dental Center.
