A No Fear, Anxiety-Free Way To Experience Dentistry

Relax, and Enjoy Your Dental Visits with IV Sedation

Have you been putting off dental care due to fear or dental anxiety? Many patients within the Austin, TX, community avoid visiting the dentist, and miss out on the wellness and lifestyle benefits that come from a healthy, confident smile. Whether you need extensive or complex care, or just simply dislike the dental office environment, IV sedation and other options can change your relationship with dentistry and change your life. IV sedation takes away fear and anxiety, creating a comfortable, positive dental experience. Certified in IV sedation, our doctors are ready to help you get the care you need and achieve your best smile yet.

IV Sedation

Administered intravenously, IV sedation immediately vanquishes dental fear and anxiety. You remain conscious and able to respond to our instructions while under IV sedation, yet will have little memory of your procedure. IV sedation is effective for all levels of dental anxiety and is ideal for those undergoing more complex procedures. The effects do last for several hours, so an adult companion is required to drive you to and from your appointment.

Oral Sedation

Oral sedation involves a prescription sedative pill, taken about an hour before your visit. With oral sedation, you feel calm, relaxed and uncaring about your procedure. Because the effects of oral sedation do linger, we recommend having a companion drive you home.

Nitrous Oxide

Nitrous oxide is a clear, odorless gas inhaled before and during your dental treatment. This option produces relaxation and a euphoric sensation. Once the gas is stopped and we administer oxygen, the effects completely dissipate and do not linger.

Local Anesthetic

With a gentle touch, our doctors administer numbing medication to anesthetize treatment areas. We often combine local anesthetic with sedation dentistry options.

Benefits of IV Sedation

  • Pain-free dental treatment

  • Little-to-no memory of treatment
