Dealing with Dental Anxiety

Have you always wanted to perfect your smile, but feel too anxious to honestly consider cosmetic dentistry treatments? Worse yet, do you avoid seeing the dentist for routine examinations because your anxiety is simply too unbearable?

If you suffer from any type of dental anxiety, Houston cosmetic dentist Dr. Scott Young may have just the solution you have been looking for.

Sedation Dentistry

Dr. Young offers sedation dentistry to help anxious patients feel comfortable and relaxed during their dental treatments. The types of sedation offered by Dr. Young can significantly reduce anxiety without putting a patient under complete anesthesia. This is not only safer, it allows you to remain alert enough to respond to simple directions during your procedure.

No matter if oral conscious sedation or nitrous oxide is your best option, Dr. Young has you covered. During your sedation dentistry consultation he will listen closely to your concerns, discuss all of your options, and help you choose which type of sedation will best meet your specific needs.

If you would like to learn more about treating dental anxiety, please contact us to schedule an appointment with Dr. Young. We serve Houston, Kingwood, Spring, and surrounding areas of Texas from our centrally located office in The Woodlands.

Dr. Scott Young, DDS
