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.

  • They were fantastic!! I had a dental emergency (broken front tooth) and they were able to fit me in immediately. The office is so clean and fancy (they have TV's on the ceiling so you can watch shows while you wait and have work done). Everyone was friendly and the Dr. did an amazing job fixing my tooth! I would highly recommend them!!

  • A very patient and courteous team. Yavette their Schedule/Treatment Coordinator was professional and knowledgeable, concerning my insurance and billing plan. Thank you for following up with me...

    Christopher W.
  • I honestly NEVER write reviews, but I was compelled to write this one because I feel that Dr. Dholariya and his entire staff deserve this review and your business. From the moment I scheduled my appointment until the moment I walked out of the office, the staff were all very polite, attentive and most importantly their goal was to address anything that I was concerned about with my dental health. I hadn’t had my teeth cleaned in a couple of years and I was concerned that I may have a few cavities (I did) and I had some sensitivity in my mouth. The hygienist Paul and Dr. Dholariya were very thorough and gentle. I had no pain in the sensitive areas while my teeth were being cleaned and examined. I must also note that they have all the latest technology to ensure they catch all the cavities that they can not with X-rays and a manual exam!! I was really impressed and will definitely be back. If you are hesitant to see a dentist because of pain or fear, you have to go to this office. They will take care of you!

    Luella E.
  • All the staff is SUPER friendly from start to finish. Emily was AWESOME on my first visit and made sure I understood what would be done before I left the office. When I returned for my actual procedure Aja and the doctor were AMAZING in making sure to explain what was being done that day and made sure to answer any questions. They made me feel very comfortable and insured I was never in any pain. The doctor is amazing and I am very happy with the dental work. I would say this is the best experience I have had in a dental office by far.

    Jazmin S.
  • 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!!!

    Crystal H.
  • Great place to get your dental Care. The staff is friendly, patient and really seems to enjoy doing what they do. Comfortable atmosphere with the latest and greatest equipment. They make a normally difficult experience pleasant. They are definitely setting the standard for dental Care.

    Jesse
  • Everything from the office design to the technicians and doctors was welcoming. I had been told by another dentist prior to quarantine that I had two cavities. Turns out that wasn’t true. Dr. Dholariya did my cleaning which was very pleasant. Gentlest cleaning ever. I am very glad I found this place so close to home, and I’m so glad to know they didn’t try to make a buck just because they could like the place I went before. My teeth feel and look so clean!!
