Sedation Dentistry is more commonly referred to as Sleep Dentistry. If your fear of the dentist is stopping you from having a brilliant smile, visit us at Port Arthur Smiles, and you will not be afraid anymore! And that is a promise!
At Port Arthur Smiles, we understand that anxiety keeps many people from receiving the life-changing dental care that they need.

Oral sedation works well for mild anxiety or shorter appointments:
Known as “laughing gas,” this sedative reduces anxiety and helps you ease through treatment:
Many patients benefit from IV sedation:
We understand that dental fear may cause you to keep pushing your dental treatment further into the future! However, on a very regular basis, we see the consequences of neglected dental problems.
Most dental related problems don’t hurt until they’ve reached a critical, irreversible point. A cavity quietly progresses until it reaches the center of the tooth where the nerve sits. Bacteria slowly destroy bone around your teeth, and 90% of the bone may disappear before you even realize what has happened!
Pain very frequently presents itself as a late-stage symptom of a developing problem. If you wait for discomfort to occur, then the odds are that you’ll need more intensified treatment, compared to if the problem was detected earlier. Proactivity in your oral health means regular check-ups, which can result in fewer visits and less cost over time!
At Port Arthur Smiles, our dentists specialize in providing a worry-free dental experience. We find the sedation option that works just right for you, and try our best to propose a treatment plan that best fits your needs and requirements.
