Experience the wonders of Sedation Dentistry

Dentist Pasadena Texas

Sedation Dentistry for Deer Park:

Does thinking about going to the dentist make you anxious or ill?

Have you been putting off going to the dentist?

Would you like dental visits to be pain- and care-free?

If you answered, “Yes,” then you need to visit Dr. Michael Nugent’s Pasadena, Texas dental office and experience Sedation Dentistry. Dr. Nugent holds a special license from the State of Texas to administer special sedation techniques for his patients.

Immediately following his graduation from Dental School, Dr. Nugent quickly realized that many people had a fear of the dentist. Most causes are due to prior negative dental experiences. Dr. Nugent started to study the emerging field of sedation dentistry and has become a local leader in dental sedation.

Imagine having your dental work complete, and when the treatment is over you have no recollection of your treatment. Dr. Nugent combines oral sedation (pills) and nitrous oxide (laughing gas) to help his fearful and anxious patients.

The main benefits of dental sedation are:

  • Decreased anxiety and fear
  • Decreased memory of the procedure
  • Makes dental appointments more manageable
  • Decreased sense of the sounds and smells of dentistry
  • Long appointments feel like minutes
  • Reduces dental phobia
  • It’s easier to become numb
  • Aids patients in completing their treatment plan

Dental Sedation Patient


Patients enjoy the simple and relaxing effects of sedation dentistry.

They are several forms of sedation that are available. The simplest and easiest is to only utilize nitrous oxide (laughing gas). The nitrous oxide relaxes patients, and at the end of the procedure the patient is fully alert and able to drive themselves home. Conscious sedation is the utilization of oral pills and nitrous oxide. The sedation is deeper and is used for more frightful patients. Patients must have someone drive them home and stay with them until the effects of the oral medication have worn off.
