IV Sedation

How Does Sedation Work?

Dr. Randy Mitchmore’s sedation expertise can help put your apprehension to bed.

The latest technology makes dentistry gentler and easier than ever. However, many people are still anxious about going to the dentist. There are a lot of reasons for this, including bad dental experiences in the past, fear of needles, and a general distrust of dentists. With good Houston sedation dentistry, you will be able to enjoy a relaxing visit with minimal if any pain or discomfort. In fact, you can choose to fall asleep and end up with little or no memory of having dental work done at all.

If appropriate, we can provide you with a prescription medication an hour before your appointment, which will relax you by the time you arrive at LifeSmiles in Houston, Texas. Because you will be sedated, you will need someone to drive you to and from the appointment. When visiting the dentist we will seat you in a chair made comfortable with things like warm blankets, booties for your feet, and memory foam pillows for your neck, back, and knees. We will even provide sunglasses and noise-cancelling headphones to block out the bright lights and procedural sounds.

(Can you see us beaming with pride?)

    The level of technical expertise is unsurpassed; however, the level of caring is more important to me as a patient. EVERY member of the team has been so kind, seems to genuinely care about my well-being, and has gone BEYOND what one would normally experience in a healthcare environment. I feel valued and truly cared for at your office; you are most appreciated! Thank you, thank you, thank you.

    I have been to several dentists in my 55-years but never have I found one as wonderful as a person and a dentist. I have told everybody that I can about Dr. Mitchmore and his staff.

    "Whenever anyone would like to get serious about their dental care, Dr. Mitchmore at LifeSmiles is the place to go to. He has the ability to change someone's teeth like you would see on a TV makeover show. His staff is so friendly and non-judgemental that you feel extremely comfortable any time you go to the dentist. I just started going to LifeSmiles a little over a year ago, and now I cannot see myself going anywhere else. I cannot recommend these people enough."
