Sedation Dentistry

Due to the nature of some dental treatments, sedation is required during dental treatment. However, sedation dentistry also allows patients who get nervous while visiting the dentist to relax during treatment. There are a number of options in sedation dentistry. They range from mild sedation to general anesthetic.

Compounded Topical Anesthetics

If you have a history of avoiding the dentist or missing Dental appointments due to anxiety of needle, we use prescription strength topical anesthetic gel which are way stronger than regular topical anesthetics (gel) used by most Dental offices. Over the years, Dr Dholariya has developed a protocol which along with warm anesthetics makes most injections almost painless.

IV Sedation Dentistry

With certain dental treatments or patients, deeper conscious sedation is recommended. IV sedation uses sedation medications that are intravenously delivered to quickly put you into a relaxed state. Although you will be awake and able to answer the dental team when questioned, you will mostly be unaware of the sounds, smells and sites around you. Many patients remember little or nothing of their treatment by the next day.

IV sedation is used for a variety of reasons, either on request of the patient or recommendation of the dentist. If you have a high level of dental anxiety or a severe gag reflex, IV sedation can allow you to obtain the dental treatments you need without stress or fear. Other reasons that IV sedation may be suggested or commonly used include:

Our goal at Kyle Parkway Dentistry is to make our patients as comfortable as possible during their visits to our office. IV sedation offers a relaxing option to ensure every patient can receive the care they need without pain or discomfort during their visit. However, if you use IV sedation, plan to have a friend or family member available to take you home after your appointment. The lingering effects of this type of sedation will not allow you to drive.

Cost of IV sedation:

Cost of IV sedation usually starts at $150-250/15-mins of time increment. Your PPO insurance may or may not pay portion of this.

Very few dentists have extensive extra training after dental school to do IV sedation dentistry and it does requires very extensive monitoring and documentation for your safety to comply with Texas state regulations, hence it costs higher than other forms of dental sedation.  

Nitrous Oxide

Most people know Nitrous oxide by its more common name, laughing gas. This sedation is so named due to patients experiencing fits of laughter under sedation. Nitrous oxide help you to relax during dental treatment however it is lighter form of sedation than IV sedation.

Nitrous oxide is carefully monitored to ensure you are receiving the correct level of sedation. After your treatment, the effects of the gas will wear off quickly. However, it is important to wait some time before attempting to drive or operate machinery.

Cost of Nitrous:

  Cost of Nitrous can range from $99-$150 depending on length of procedure. Your PPO insurance may or may not pay for this depending on your employer’s agreement with insurance company.

    Sabrina S.
  • I have been receiving care here for a few years now and really am pleased with every aspect of this office. My last visit was just as pleasant as ever, if not more. I know dental work can be hard for some to receive and for me it’s the local anesthetic (mouth shot). The assistant helping (Macy?) during my appointment was kind enough to rub my arm as a distraction. It was very comforting and did well to take my attention off the shots going into my mouth! Sweet people throughout the office, love you guys!!!

  • The experience with Kyle Parkway Dentistry was nothing less than excellent. Partially because Martin, the hygienist, took the best care of my teeth & gave me quality advice for future Heath benefits. The office staff alone was great as well! Tosha, an insurance coordinator, gave me the best guidance for payment plans too. Definitely would recommend this place for any treatment!

    Israel V.
  • Very friendly informative and professional. My first visit went great!! Once i was told what i needed going forward for care of my teeth they had the exact quote so i knew what i had to lay, not a estimate like other places i have been. They also have really nice new tools and machines and you can watch Netflix while they clean your teeth! I highly recommend this place! I forgot to mention my teeth look amazing, the dental hygienist did an amazing job!!!

  • After having an extreme paranoia about the dentist for just about my entire life Dr. D and his team have put that to rest. I have now been coming to Kyle Parkway Dentistry for 3+ years and it's because of him and his staff that have lost that fear of dental services.
    Most of the original staff that I started with have moved on, but the current team is just as nice and friendly and willing to go above and beyond to make you feel at home and make sure your stress about billing and insurance is put at ease... and even with the new staff they all know me, my wife and our kids like they us them everyday.
    Thank You Team K.P.D. for ALL you do for me and my family.
    See you in 6...
