Austin Sedation Dentistry
Ease Dental Treatment Anxiety
For many adults and children, a visit to the dentist is a scary thought. Yet it is just as scary to imagine what could happen without regular dental treatment. A sleep dentist can offer sedation dentistry options to alleviate patient worries. This allows the patient to get the dental services he or she needs without fear. Want to know more? Call us!

Sedation Services We Offer
Anne Lyon DDS offer a number of medical and technological methods for safe, comfortable sleep dentistry. These include:
- Nitrous Oxide: This is the substance referred to as “laughing gas.” Patients breathe nitrous oxide through a special mask during their procedure. The gas creates a temporary state of calmness. When the treatment is finished, the gas is immediately turned off, and the patient quickly returns to normal.
- Local Anesthetic: Local anesthetics are numbing agents that are used in the area where the dentist or hygienist plans to work. The anesthetic works quickly, and the area is completely free of sensation.
- Oral Sedation: Oral medications are taken prior to the start of dental treatment. This medication allows you to relax and feel a state of extreme calm. The effects of oral sedation can last for several hours, and we advise our patients to have someone drive them to and from their dental appointment.
- IV Sedation: This level of sedation is called twilight sleep and is used for some wisdom teeth extractions and for other dental procedures.
- NuCalm: NuCalm is the world's only patented technology proven to solve patient fear and anxiety without drugs. This all-natural, predictable, and easy-to-implement neuroscience solution is used by the world’s top athletes, pilots, dentists, medical practitioners, and cancer treatment centers. NuCalm naturally brings your body to the pre-sleep states characterized by deep relaxation and idleness. To read more about NuCalm, visit their website by clicking here.
