AUSTIN, TEXAS (PRWEB) December 19, 2012
The Lakeway Center for Cosmetic and Family Dentistry announces the addition of IV sedation to its list of patient services.
The IV sedation offered by the Austin cosmetic dentists uses anti-anxiety medication to calm patients’ nerves without putting them to sleep as general anesthesia would. As a result of using anti-anxiety medication instead of general anesthesia, patients are able to respond and cooperate with instructions. The anti-anxiety medication helps patients to relax, and patients often have little to no memory of the dental procedure.
IV sedation can be administered for almost any procedure, including teeth whitening, the application of dental veneers or even teeth cleaning. Interested patients should call (512) 518-6393 to set up a consultation with a dentist at the Lakeway Center for Cosmetic and Family Dentistry to determine if sedation dentistry is the right choice for them.
“So many people avoid getting the dental care they need because of fear of the dental chair, but IV sedation can melt that fear away,” said Dr. Robert D’Alfonso, the lead dentist at the Lakeway Center for Cosmetic and Family Dentistry. “IV sedation makes dental treatments easier and faster, so it is a great option for almost any patient.”
