Maximize Comfort with Sedation Dentistry

Often times, patients avoid receiving the vital dental care they need due to anxiety. At Woodcreek Family Dentistry in Katy, TX, we provide sedation dentistry to maximize your comfort during treatment. For reliability and effectiveness, we primarily offer intravenous (IV) sedation, which can be adjusted throughout your procedure.

Our dentists work directly with a trusted anesthesiologist who monitors the health of our patients to ensure their safety. With over 15 years of experience and extensive training, our dentists incorporate the latest surgical techniques and technology into each treatment to improve patient comfort and deliver excellent results.

Sedation Dentistry
For your convenience, our office offers IV sedation in-house, so we can provide comprehensive care in a single location. To ensure your safety, we work with a board certified anesthesiologist with extensive experience in outpatient general anesthesia. He will be present for the entire duration of your procedure, monitoring your health and wellbeing.
Patient Selection
IV sedation can benefit patients who:

  1. Need more extensive dental work
  2. Have anxiety or phobias about dental procedures
  3. Have a lower tolerance for pain and higher sensitivity
  4. Have certain medical conditions, such as multiple sclerosis, that make sitting still challenging
IV sedation is administered through your vein, enabling the sedative to take effect more quickly. In addition, IV sedation provides:

  1. Increased safety and consistent results
  2. Shorter procedure times
  3. Faster recovery period
  4. Minimized pain, discomfort, and stress

At our practice, we understand that many patients have dental anxiety, which is why we take the time to explain your treatment options and review each step of your procedure. We can answer any questions or concerns you may have and provide you with detailed pre- and post-operative instructions.
