When your appointment is complete, you will have little or no memory of the noises, smells, or dental procedures, and feel like no time has passed at all. You will feel like you have had a deep and satisfying sleep. No pain, no discomfort, and no fear. You will go home with a sense of well-being and the satisfaction of having attended to your dental health. Make an appointment today to discuss how our dentists at our Dental Clinic can create a new smile while you 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  is a low cost dental office and is the dentist office by me.

Many patients take advantage of Sedation dentistry to complete treatments and procedures that might normally take multiple visits, in one comfortable appointment. A qualified specialist anesthetist stays by your side for the entire procedure to ensure your safety and comfort, and you are afforded state of the art safety and monitoring equipment.

Whether you have had a bad dental experience in the past, or dread going to the dentist for any reason, have difficulty keeping your mouth open, have a sensitive gag reflex, need lengthy or extensive treatment, require a surgical procedure such as wisdom teeth removal or implant placement, or are just short on time, sleep dentistry is a great solution.

Why do people choose Sleep Dentistry?


One of the most common reasons people avoid going to the dentist is fear or anxiety. Some may have heard frightening stories and unfortunately, some have had horrible experiences as a child or adult.  It could have been a single episode, that leads to a lifetime of avoidance and fear.  That fear is very difficult to overcome, and often is amplified by many years of avoiding the dentist and knowing the situation in your mouth is not healthy. So if you agree that you would rather not know what is happening during your treatment, even if you have one of our friendly dentists who could offer pain-free treatment using local anaesthetic only, then sleep dentistry is an excellent option for you.

Hypersensitive gag reflex

Some people elect to have sedation dentistry because they have an exaggerated gag reflex which makes regular dental treatment very difficult. Sedation for some is the only way they will have their dental needs addressed.


Other patients are not necessarily afraid, but they have extensive treatment needs. Under a regular dental setting, numerous appointments may be needed to complete their treatment. Due to the busy lifestyles of so many of us these days, organising 5-10 appointments could mean treatment might take months to complete. With sedation, treatment can usually be completed in one visit.

Surgical procedures

It is also great for surgical procedures or those that are potentially uncomfortable such as wisdom teeth removal or implant placement. Patients are pleasantly surprised when they have their treatment without realising it ever happened.

Will I be asleep during IV Sedation?

During sedation in our practice, you will be in a relaxed state where you can snooze or sleep through the procedure. The difference between IV sedation and a general anaesthetic, is that your body will retain your ability to breath unassisted. During a general anaesthetic, you lose your natural ability to breath, which requires the use of a ventilating machine in a hospital setting. Sedation dentistry can be carried out in our Dental clinic .

A wonderful effect of the medications used in IV sedation is amnesia. Patients remember little or nothing of their dental appointments. This can be very appealing to those who are highly fearful or anxious.
