Once you’ve experienced sedation dentistry, you’ll probably never be afraid to go to the dentist again.
You’ll be sedated just enough to be unaware of the treatment. You’ll wake up refreshed, with little or no memory of what was accomplished. Because you are completely comfortable, we can do years of dental treatments in as little as one or two visits.
We can replace crowns or dentures, restore sore gums to good health, whiten yellow or stained teeth, fix a chipped tooth, and more. People with very busy schedules can get the dental care they need, easily and quickly.
Imagine being able to smile with confidence and chew your food without pain. No wonder so many patients say: “Thank you. Sedation dentistry changed my life.”
How does Sedation Dentistry work?
Eric Bess DDS is one of the few restorative dentists in Texas certified to administer intravenous (I.V.) and oral (pills) sedation for all dental procedures. Your companion will accompany you to the office. By the time you arrive, you will be very drowsy.
When you arrive in our office, you will be escorted into the comfort room, covered with a thick, warm blanket and placed on a monitor to watch your vital signs. After you are comfortable, the experienced clinical team at Eric Bess DDS will take care of your dental needs.
When your treatment is completed, your companion will return you home to finish your comfortable, relaxing day.

It Really Works! Dr. Eric Bess DDS is one of the few restorative dentists in Texas certified to administer intravenous (I.V.) and oral (pills) sedation for all dental procedures.
I.V. Sedation is safe! You will have little or no memory of the experience. You probably won’t remember any sounds or smells. You will relax for up to five or six hours after taking the pill. The time you are relaxing will vary depending on your needed treatment.
