How safe is Conscious Sedation Dentistry?

 Whether you have a sensitive gag reflex, require a surgical procedure, or have simply had a bad dental experience in the past, then you know not all dental experiences are positive ones. But if need more than just a simple check-up and don’t feel as though oral or inhalation sedation will be enough, then IV sedation might be worth considering. IV sedation is also known as conscious sedation and sleep or twilight dentistry and it is the most advanced form of dental sedation. it’s performed under a general anesthetic. However, it is milder than a full anesthetic so you are not unconscious but in an induced, highly relaxed state. You should feel no pain during the procedure, and when you ‘wake up’ you will have no memory of the smells, noises, or dental procedure and will feel like no time has passed at all. You will basically feel like you’ve had a deep and satisfying sleep! The Texas City Dental in Texas City is conveniently located near to La Marque, Galveston, and the Hitchcock area is conveniently located near to the HEB and ROSS market complex.

There are several types of sedation available for dental procedures, ranging from mild to heavy sedation. The level of sedation used will depend on the individual and the treatment being performed. It's highly common for patients to feel anxious about their dental visits. This is why sleep or sedation dentistry is used to help patients feel more comfortable and at ease during dentist appointments. It helps alleviate the fear of pain, needles, noises, and smells associated with dental care. Sleep or sedation dentistry can help you finally relax in the dentist's chair.

Dear Patients,

Gov. Abbott has allowed that dental offices may resume practice starting from midnight, May 1st. This is great news for us and our patients, as we have missed you all!. It is imperative that we reopen properly and cautiously to protect our patients and our team. We appreciate everyone’s support while we make these changes!


  1. Every patient, when confirming their appointment, will be asked a few screening questions to determine if said dental appointment should be rescheduled. 
  2. If you have experienced fever or been exposed to COVID19+ you will be asked to reschedule to a later date.
  3. We have hand sanitizer throughout the office, including check-in/out, and hand soap is stocked for the restrooms.
  4. We will be cleaning high-traffic areas, and high-exposure areas multiple times throughout the day. 
  5. Our team will be wearing all appropriate personal protective equipment. We take infection control seriously and always have. These are changing times requiring that we change with them. 
  6. The HEPA filter has been placed at the office to filter even the smallest viruses and bacteria.
  7. We have reduced the number of chairs in our waiting room to comply with #socialdistancing 
  8. We will no longer display magazines/books/toys in the lobby. This was hard for us to do because our smallest patients LOVE playing with the toys.
  9. We will be taking temperatures when we come to your vehicle to get you, and temperatures above 100.4 will need to be rescheduled.
  10. We will be taking temperatures on our team members twice daily to ensure the safety of our patients.
  11. Prior to dental treatment, we will have patients rinse with a 1.5% hydrogen peroxide pre-rinse.
