Austin Sedation Dentistry

We are here to help you feel comfortable

Discomfort management has taken great strides in recent years, and most dental procedures are now very comfortable. Even the process of giving the local anesthetic has modernized and is more comfortable. Sedation dentistry makes your dental care more comfortable and helps you cope with fear. No matter what the challenge, we can provide the solution to any of your dental needs. Outstanding results for autistic patients, dementia patients and of course those with high anxiety.



If you still feel anxious at the very thought of visiting a dentist, consider oral sedation dentistry. It will allow you to relax during your Austin dental care visit, and you’ll have a choice of degrees of sedation. Austin sedation dentistry is perfect for anyone that has neglected their teeth out if fear of the dentist office, is in need of extensive dental work, or needs to limit their number of appointments.

You’ll need someone to drive you home afterwards, as you’ll still be drowsy.  One option is to take a prescribed relaxant before you arrive at the dentist’s office, in which case you’ll need someone to drive you there.

Sedation dentistry, also known as conscious sedation or sleep dentistry is a great option to make your Austin sedation visit more comfortable

Laughing gas (nitrous oxide) is a gentle relaxant that some people are familiar with.

Benefits of Sedation Dentistry

  • Reduce dental anxiety and fear of future dental treatments.
  • Little to no memory (amnesia) of the dental procedure (with IV sedation and sometimes with oral sedation).
  • Completion of most or all of dental treatment in one visit instead of multiple visits.
  • Improved post-operative pain management since stronger medicines can be given during the procedure.
  • Patient relaxation and increased comfort.
  • Removes need for patient cooperation for special needs patients.

“I had oral sedation for an implant. I was given a blanket and treated with great care during the procedure. Dr. Patel set a timer and injected more numbing medication prior to it wearing off, since this is an issue for me. I really enjoy his assistant and how she makes me feel comfortable and explains everything she’s doing. I can be an emotional mess when I come in for a procedure. Everyone in the office is patient and kind.”

If you’ve been neglecting your dental hygiene and are fearful of what condition your teeth might be in, and what the dentist might find, know that:

  • The sooner you schedule a visit and have your teeth looked at, the sooner any problem will be found and treated
  • It’s always easier to treat infection, decay, or any disease in the early stages than after it’s progressed and become more established
  • No matter what problem the dentist might find with your teeth, there will be a way of addressing it, and Dr. Patel will explain what choices there will be.

Modern dentistry offers many more treatments and alternatives than dentistry used to offer years ago.
