For many people, a trip to the dentist’s office for a routine examination and cleaning can create little to no difficulty. However, some individuals may find that even routine services are uncomfortable, and in some cases can be difficult to arrange. For those who have issues with dental anxiety, scheduling care can be difficult. Individuals with special needs may find it hard to find a practice ready to accommodate them and provide the kind of service they require. Our Katy, TX dentist’s office is proud to provide access to special needs dentistry. For those patients who have difficulty with dental care, and those whose anxiety issues make treatment uncomfortable, we do offer dental sedation to make care easier to receive.
Routine Dental Visits Can Be Difficult For Some People To Access
There are different reasons why people sometimes struggle with dental care. Individuals with special needs can find it hard to comfortably receive care, and may even find that practices are not prepared to give them the right accommodations. For some, the search for the right practice can lead to consistent frustration, and may end with them relying on a general medical facility for routine care! Those who experience feelings of unease and anxiety around dental care can find that they struggle with preventive services, let alone more involved restorative dental procedures. To make their time in our office easier, we can recommend different degrees of dental sedation.
Our Commitment To Making Our Practice A Welcoming Place For Those With Special Needs
Our practice is proud to make treatment more accessible and comfortable for those with special needs. We take the time to learn who are patients are, and to find out how we can provide them the right approach to care. We can talk with patients and their family members to ensure that we provide support that makes visits more comfortable and successful.
How Sedation Makes A Person’s Time In The Dentist’s Chair Easier
Dental sedation can be used for those who struggle with dental services, as well as for individuals who need a longer or more involved procedure and want to remain comfortable. We work with anesthesiologists at our practice who can safely provide different types of sedation to make care easier. For many, we can provide nitrous oxide throughout the duration of their treatment. Other options, like treatment with an oral sedative, can offer a deeper degree of calm.
