Sedation Options

Dr. Ace on sedation options

Here at Jovan Prosthodontics, Round Rock, TX dentist Dr. Ace offers several dental sedation options, allowing each patient to find the best solution to their dental anxiety, big or small. Dental anxiety can manifest in different forms, and we believe you deserve personalized treatment in relieving it.

    Nitrous Oxide

    If your anxiety is relatively mild, nitrous oxide (more commonly known as “laughing gas”) may work best for you. After you begin breathing it in, you will feel calm and content. And, unlike other forms of sedation, the effects will wear off shortly after your procedure.

    Oral Sedation

    Maybe you have experienced subtle tension when you’ve visited dentists in the past. As frustrating as it was, you may have considered it unavoidable. Fortunately, even in the case of minor anxiety, Round Rock, TX dentist Dr. Ace can prescribe a pill before your procedure so you can feel relaxed before you even enter our office.

    IV Sedation

    Perhaps your anxiety has grown severe enough to keep you from visiting a dentist altogether. If so, IV sedation, a deep form of dental sedation, may be for you. While you will remain conscious during your procedure, any tension will melt away as you fall into a dreamlike state. In addition to relaxing you during your visit, you will remember very little of your visit when you return home and will, in time, feel less dental anxiety at each visit.

    General Anesthesia

    Perhaps you’d rather not remember your experience at all. We can also offer the strongest form of dental sedation, general anesthesia, which will put you fully to sleep almost instantly. Because you will be unconscious, you will not recall even a glimpse of your procedure when you leave.
