Whether you are in need of an oral surgery procedure, or you’re just one of millions of Americans suffering from dental anxiety that prevents you from seeking the dental care you need, we’re proud to have several sedation dentistry options available at Vista Ridge Family Dentistry. Sit back, relax, and walk out with a smile in the fact that you made the right decision for your oral health.
IV sedation is the heaviest form of sedation, and is generally only used for major surgical procedures or patients with extreme anxiety. The sedative is introduced intravenously, and you will quickly drift off to sleep, only to wake up what seems like moments later with your treatment complete. Our doctors are skilled and certified sedation dentists in Cedar Park. We will monitor your vitals closely while you are asleep, and send you home with specific post-op instructions to follow to ensure a speedy recovery.
Oral sedation comes in the form of a prescription pill, prescribed by your Cedar Park dentist at Vista Ridge Family Dentistry. You can pick up your medication from your preferred local pharmacy, and take about an hour before your appointment to help you relax. You will feel relaxed and lethargic, and may or may not drift off to sleep during your appointment. Either way, the details will be fuzzy, and you will leave having had the most relaxing dental experience you’ve ever had.
With any form of sedation, you will need to arrange for transportation to and from your appointment, as you will not be authorized to operate a motor vehicle under the medication’s effects.
If you’re ready to take control of your dental anxiety and get the quality dental care you need and deserve, you’ve come to the right place. We would be more than happy to discuss your sedation options with you.
