Sedation Dentist in Austin, TX
Many people feel anxious before and during dental procedures. It's okay to feel nervous or even fearful when anticipating an appointment. We understand that our patients aren't all the same, and we have great news: you have options! You can experience dental treatment in a comfortable, customized approach with several different methods of sedation.
Oral Sedation - Oral sedation is an excellent option for patients who suffer from dental anxiety. It is simply taken in pill or liquid form and ingested at a set time before treatment. The drug produces a calming effect to make the visit to our office a much less stressful experience. Oral sedation is simple, safe and has very few side effects.
Inhalation Sedation - Inhalation Sedation is commonly used to make treatment more comfortable. The sedation is inhaled through a mask and produces a state of relaxation. Local anesthetic will be administered in conjunction with inhaled sedation medication to eliminate pain. Inhalation therapy is designed to make procedures easier for nervous patients and has been effective for many years.
