Sedation Dentistry

sedation dentistry and conscious sedation in Austin and Round RockThere Is No Need To Fear Your Austin Dentist

Do you live in Austin, Cedar Park, or Round Rock and sometimes feel fear about going to the dentist? Have you ever made an appointment to see the dentist and then cancelled or not shown up? Does the idea of going to the dentist make you anxious or upset?

Dental anxiety is very common, and we have helped lots of patients overcome their fear (even extreme fear) of dental treatment with dental sedation. We have two dental sedation options to help you relax: oral conscious sedation dentistry, and laughing gas.

Both of these options are conscious sedation treatments, which means you aren’t going to sleep. Conscious sedation treatments mean you are awake and aware, just without the anxiety you may have suffered in the past.

Dental Sedation Options Near Round Rock

In our office, we offer two sedation dentistry options to help alleviate any dental anxiety. We’re confident that choosing either of these will help you stay relaxed and calm during any procedure.

Oral Conscious Sedation

If you choose oral conscious sedation, we will supply a pill for you to take before your appointment or right as you arrive at our office. With this form of conscious sedation, you will soon begin to relax and may feel absolutely no anxiety during your procedure.

You will need to arrange transportation to and from the office to ensure your safety.

Laughing gas has been used for years and is proven to help patients relax. This sedation option can be used for a dental implant, root canal, or just your regular cleaning.

This laughing gas doesn’t make you want to giggle throughout a procedure; you simply feel less anxious and won’t worry about the treatments you are receiving. Laughing gas is a conscious sedation treatment, so you aren’t “out” or asleep during your treatment, just relaxed.

Dr. Scaff has received continuing education and training in sedation dentistry, which makes him an excellent choice as a sedation dentist for the Austin area. We are located in northwest Austin, by Cedar Park and Round Rock.

If you fear trips to the dentist, we would be glad to discuss these options with you to determine what may work best to help you get the treatment you need, just the way you need it. Call today!
