Sedation Dentistry Services In Cypress, TX
By Dr. Shannon Pham
Reasons To Choose Sedation Dentistry
Millions of people are avoiding to visit their dentist and have a number of important procedures that are performed. Cavities go unchecked, tooth erosion is neglected, and gum disease is ignored by the sufferer. Sadly, the reason why these dental problems are allowed to persist (often, painfully) is because many people fear to have dental work done. Intravenous sedation eliminates this fear. Patients can visit a professional dentist and have most types of procedures completed without enduring any discomfort or pain.
Other people have a gag reflex when dentists perform work in their mouths. Sedation helps these patients to completely relax, allowing their dentists to perform work that is essential for good oral health. Still, others want to have cosmetic dental work done, but they fear the pain involved. They, too, can benefit from being sedated intravenously.
Onlays are similar to inlays in that they fill a missing hole caused by a cavity, but onlays extend onto the chewing surface of a tooth to replace one or more cusps. Traditionally, they were also only made of gold, but tooth-colored onlays have made an appearance in dentistry. An onlay is considered a more effective option for patients with large cavities or the decayed area expands over the top of the tooth.
The process of inlays and onlays both involve bonding material to attach and seal it to the tooth. In both treatments, the bonding material may actually improve the strength of the tooth.
Additional Dental Procedures
During the annual checkup, a dental patient may be advised of some additional procedures that should be completed. These processes are important to the integrity of your teeth, as they can prevent cavities and damage. Some of the processes that may be completed at your dentist office include tooth removal, the insertion of an implant that will hold a crown, whitening, dentures and more.

There may also come a point where the practitioner you are working with will refer you to a specialist. This referral is important because your teeth may require additional procedures in order to maintain their health. Some of these procedures can include a root canal, the removal of molars, as well as orthodontia work to correct an over/under-bite that you are currently experiencing.
While dentures improve the form and function of a person’s smile, they feel and act differently than natural teeth.
Our Patients Love Us
Dr. Pham and her team is amazing. She is very patient and kind. Her staff provides great customer service and are very welcoming. She is thorough with the examinations and explains what the procedures entail very well. She is gentle and careful with all procedures. I had a deep clean and 2 wisdom teeth extracted. I highly recommend her if you need to go see a dentist but are fearful.
I've avoided going to the dentist for most of my life because of past traumatic experiences, but I had an emergency and found emmy dental. I immediately felt at ease in their office, all staff were welcoming and had a calming presence. Dr. Shannon Pham was so gentle and never made me feel insecure about the state of my teeth. She genuinely cares about her work and it's obvious. I've already recommended Emmy dental to a friend.
My sister comes to place for her check up every 6 months. The staff and the orthodontist have been really professional, very kind, and knowledgeable. They take her serious and they have empathy whenever she complains about something hurting in her mouth. I love this place, I highly recommend.
Dr. Pham is awesome. I get terrible anxiety after getting the numbing shots before getting a filling fixed or a new one. In past experiences with other dentists I’ve even nearly passed out, gotten super dizzy, thrown up, sweating, etc….
Dr Pham was the first dentist to offer me laughing gas, so I tried it, and it worked. I felt calm, I didn’t have a panic attack, my vitals all normalized.
I can’t believe none of the other dentists offered me this even after my complaints. I appreciate Dr. Pham considering my issues instead of just forcing me through a procedure.
