Relax at Cedar Park Dental & Braces

Dental Anxiety

Feeling anxious about your next dental visit? Sedation dentistry can help you!

Dental anxiety is a very common problem. Even people who work at dental offices experience dental phobia!

Vanessa is a Cedar Park Dental & Braces team member who worked with us for over a year before she built up the nerve to get in the chair for a dental cleaning. She’d had traumatic experiences in the past, and the team at Cedar Park Dental & Braces did a great job making her feel at home and putting her at ease.

Our hygienists and dentists will review all the treatment & processes planned beforehand, so you’ll know exactly what to expect. Beyond that, you’ll be relaxed by our calming atmosphere; including warm scented towels, beverage bar, TVs in the treatment rooms, computer station, and much more.

FACT: Dentophobia is a very common fear in the U.S.

Nitrous Oxide is Available

Another method of sedation is the use of nitrous oxide, often called laughing gas. This option also helps relieve anxiety and lightens the mood. This particular method helps children and teens who may feel fearful. Nitrous oxide is also a good choice for patients who have physical or mental impairment that could make a visit to the dentist worrisome or uncomfortable. It helps the patient relax so that they will have a better experience.

Before administering any sedation, it is critical to review your health history. We take into consideration all medications and supplements you are taking and we ask about your habits such as smoking and alcohol intake. After examining the health history and making the determination that you are a good candidate for sedation, we will then go over the steps to prepare for your dental sedation visit. We carefully screen all sedation patients at Cedar Park Dental & Braces because your health and safety come first. Contact us today to schedule an appointment. We are committed to ensuring that you have a good dental experience.
