Sedation Dentistry is more commonly referred to as Sleep Dentistry. If your fear of the dentist is stopping you from having a brilliant smile, visit us at Orange Family Dental, and you will not be afraid anymore – that is a promise
At Orange Family Dental, we understand that anxiety keeps many people from receiving the life-changing dentistry they need.
If dental fear stands as an obstacle between you and a healthy smile, we have options that make dental care easier than you ever imagined. Three modes of anxiety control allow even the most fearful patient to experience the most excellent dentistry.

We understand that dental fear may cause you to keep pushing dental treatment further into the future. But on a regular basis, we see the consequences of neglected dental problems.
Most dental problems don’t hurt until they reach a critical point. A cavity quietly progresses until it reaches the center of the tooth where the nerve sits. Or bacteria slowly destroy bone around your teeth, and 90% of it may disappear before you realize what’s happened.
So pain frequently presents as a late-stage symptom of a developing problem. If you wait for discomfort to occur, odds are you’ll need significantly more treatment than if we’d detected the problem early. Regular check-ups mean fewer visits and less cost over time!
At Port Arthur Smiles, our doctors specialize in providing a worry-free dental experience. We find the sedation option that works just right for you and helps you avoid complicated treatment in the future.
