Lakeway Sedation Dental Surgery

 

Looking for Sedation Dental Surgery in Lakeway?

Dental surgery can be a scary and painful experience. If you need dental surgery in Lakeway, Texas, you may want to consider sedation dental surgery. Sedation dental surgery can reduce fear and increase comfort during the surgical process.
Sedation requires preparation. Certain types of sedation will require that you have transportation to and from your dental surgery procedure. Austin Oral Surgery will work with you to determine the appropriate sedation method for you.
Many people are filled with dread at the thought of a dental surgery procedure. They worry about the level of pain during the procedure and are concerned that the usual numbing procedure won’t be effective enough for their situation. The good news is that other anesthetic solutions exist that increase comfort during the dental surgery. These additional options offer not only pain relief during the procedure, but a reduction in anxiety and fear.

Restore Your Smile with Increased Comfort

Austin Oral Surgery offers four different methods of sedation. Two forms of our sedation are administered with an IV.
Nitrous oxide reduces anxiety and quickly leaves the body. The benefit of using nitrous oxide is that you can drive yourself home after your procedure.
Oral sedation reduces anxiety and increases comfort. If you plan to use oral sedation, someone needs to accompany you to our office and drive you home after your dental surgery. This type of sedation takes longer to exit the body than nitrous oxide.
The first IV sedation is a moderate sedation. It is required that you fast eight hours prior to your procedure. You will sleep through a large portion of your dental surgery. Much like other forms of sedation, it reduces anxiety and increases comfort. You will need someone to escort you to and from your appointment.
The second IV sedation is deep sedation. Most people sleep through their entire dental procedure. Much like the moderate IV sedation, a fasting period of eight hours is recommended. You will need someone to bring you to and from your appointment. Our record of safety and comfort with sedation dental surgery is excellent.

Austin Oral Surgery: A Name You can Trust

Oral and maxillofacial surgeons complete four years of dental college as well as a residency in a hospital. This residency exposes the surgeon to many fields including emergency medicine and anesthesia. This combined experience enables our surgeons to offer safe and comfortable sedation dental surgery.
Oral and maxillofacial surgeons are the only dental specialists recognized by the American Dental Association that are surgically trained in a hospital based residency. Their training focuses almost exclusively on the hard and soft tissue of the mouth and face.

We have a step-by-step process to ensure your comfort during the sedation process. Upon your arrival, a member of our team will escort you to a room.
