There Is No Need To Fear Your Austin Dentist
Do you feel fear about going to the dentist and live in Austin, Cedar Park, or Round Rock? 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 nitrous oxide (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 have suffered from in the past. And most people who choose sedation dentistry don’t even remember anything about their dental procedures.
Dental Sedation Options Near Round Rock
We offer two sedation dentistry options:
- Oral Conscious Sedation: If you choose oral conscious sedation, we administer a pill that you will take before your appointment or right as you arrive at our office. With conscious sedation, you will begin to relax and may feel absolutely no anxiety during your procedure. You will need to arrange transportation to and from the office since you can feel a bit woozy for a while after taking this medication.
- Nitrous Oxide: Nitrous oxide has been used for years and is proven to help patients relax. Nitrous oxide, sometimes called laughing gas, doesn’t make you want to giggle through your dental procedure whether it is a dental implant, root canal, or your regular cleaning. You simply feel less anxious and won’t worry about the treatments you are receiving. Nitrous oxide is a conscious sedation treatment, so you aren’t “out” 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 available 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!
