Conquer Your Fear with Sedation Dentistry

sedation-dentistry-guide-blog

Statistics show that about 15 percent of Americans suffer from dental anxiety. Dental anxiety, or dental phobia, is more serious than just getting sweaty palms at the thought of going to the dentist -- it's a paralyzing fear of dentists or dental treatment. 

If this sounds like you, THERE IS HOPE.

For over 10 years, the team at Austin Family Dentistry has been on the cutting edge of dental sedation. Our dentists have gone through rigorous training to ensure that when it comes to sedation dentistry, we know what we’re doing.

Our mission is to alleviate our patients’ fear of going to the dentist. We take a lot of pride in doing everything we can to ensure everyone’s time at our office is pleasant and comfortable. Some offices prefer IV sedation, but when it comes to easing dental anxiety, most of the dental community have come to prefer oral sedation. It’s simpler, efficient, and our patients have thoroughly benefited from it.

Leading up to our patients’ sedation appointment, we take great care in walking through the process with them. We make it easy for our patients to be proactive by following our Oral Sedation Dentistry Checklist

As a part of this guide, we include:

  • A detailed explanation of oral sedation
  • Helpful tips to prepare for your next appointment
  • Signs and symptoms that qualify you for oral sedation
