Are you afraid of the dentist? We promise, we’re very gentle! Need more help than our assurances? We offer a few options for sedation dentistry to help make it easier for you to get the dental work you need done.
Sedation dentistry options like oral conscious sedation and nitrous oxide can make your trip to the dentist a breeze. Read on to learn more about these sedation dentistry options offered by Broberg and Tieken Dental, serving Austin, TX and the surrounding area:
Laughing Gas Benefits
Laughing gas (nitrous oxide) has been used for decades to put patients at ease in the dental chair. This safe and effective option provides a relaxed and euphoric feeling that lasts as long as your dental appointment. We can offer this to you. Have questions? Don’t hesitate to ask!
Benefits of Oral Conscious Sedation
Oral conscious sedation involves getting an oral medication prescribed by Dr. Tieken or Dr. Broberg. This medication will leave you awake but relaxed during your procedure. This is often preferred to IV sedation, which many people are uncomfortable about. It can make it easier to endure a longer appointment and / or can be ideal for people who simply feel anxious about dental procedures and want the edge taken off.
