Sedation Dentistry - Treating your dental needs with total comfort:
Hutto Premier Dentistry has been helping patients through sedation dentistry for over 15 years. Sedation dentistry can be used to overcome dental anxiety or allow you to have dental work performed with no unpleasant memories. Our dentists provide nitrous oxide sedation, oral conscious sedation, and IV conscious sedation.
Nitrous Oxide: Also known as “Laughing gas” helps make the appointment feel more relaxing and shorter. It is inhaled throughout the procedure through the nose and the effect end shortly after. This is a great option for mild dental anxiety or for children. Adults who choose to use nitrous oxide are able to resume normal activities after their appointment, including driving.
Oral Sedation: Oral conscious sedation renders you relaxed and unaware that dental work is being performed. Often times oral sedation can help patients sit through longer appointments for those wanting to minimize their number of appointments. Most patients will feel groggy for a short time after the appointment, so a designated driver must accompany the patient to the appointment and for the drive home.
IV Sedation: With IV (Intra-Venous) Sedation, the medication is administered directly into the bloodstream which allows for a faster onset and the level of sedation is controllable. Patients often feel as though they slept through and do not remember the appointment. Sometimes patients feel groggy and sleepy when the IV sedatives are withdrawn. A designated driver must accompany the patient to the appointment and for the drive home.
A consultation with one of our doctors can help determine the most appropriate form of sedation for you!
