Taking the Stress Out of Dentistry with Sedation

We are all about smiles. We love beautifying them, making them healthy, and most of all, giving our patients a reason to use them. Unfortunately, for millions of Americans who suffer from dental phobia, just the thought of visiting a dentist can be anxiety-inducing. That is why we make every effort to take the stress out of dentistry in Pflugerville, TX, with exceptionally gentle techniques and optional sedation.

Overcoming Dental Anxiety

Most likely, anyone will feel some nervousness before a major dental procedure or when visiting a new dentist for the first time. However, phobias and anxieties are not simply nervousness. These fears might be rooted in childhood experiences or caused by other factors, but they linger long after the original situation has been resolved. An affected person might know the dentist, know that the treatment won’t hurt, and know that the procedure in question is necessary. Yet, he or she is still filled with anxiety, sometimes to an overwhelming degree.

If you have ever canceled or postponed a dental appointment on account of anxiety, you certainly are not alone. In fact, about three in ten people avoid dentists for this very reason, according to DOCS (Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation).

The first step in conquering the fear is finding the right dentist. Dr. Tucker of Elite Smiles of Pflugerville is gentle, compassionate, and highly skilled. He takes time to explain the procedure, answer questions, and ensure that each patient is comfortable and ready to proceed with treatment. Furthermore, the option of dental sedation allows even the most anxious individuals to relax while receiving treatment.

I started seeing Dr. Tucker back in 2018 in Temple when I started considering improving my smile. I had a lot of fillings as a kid that were now cracked teeth needing addressed first. Dr. Tucker did an amazing job fixing everything, and saved me a ton of money. He started his own office about an hour away from where I lived shortly after completing my work. Once I was ready to start the cosmetic work I went to 3 different dentists in my area who were okay, but I didn't feel great about moving forward with them so i decided to make the drive to see Dr. Tucker and he literally changed my life! I am in love with my my new smile and grateful for Dr. Tucker!

This dental office is amazing. It all starts as soon as you walk through the door with a warm welcome. They treat you like a family member or friend and not just a patient. Amber is so kind. Micha my hygienist explained the entire process of the cleaning to me. Made me feel comfortable and relaxed.

Benefits of Sedation Dentistry

We offer oral sedation, which is a prescription medication that you take in advance of your appointment. It takes effect gradually, which can help ease pre-treatment fears. The procedure does not begin until the sedative is fully in effect, and you are comfortable. Although sedation may be essential for people with severe phobias, it is helpful in other situations as well:

  • Making the experience more pleasant for people with mild anxiety or those who find it difficult to sit still for an extended time

  • Improving comfort for patients with muscular disorders or other problems that make it painful to hold their mouths open

  • Reducing or eliminating “dental chair fatigue” for patients who need lengthy treatments, or who want to combine multiple procedures in one appointment
