Many people avoid seeking dental care due to increased anxiety or discomfort. These are both issues that can be dealt with through sedation dentistry – a safe and effective option offered by Austin dentist Dr. John Schmid. However, sedation isn’t exclusively for those who experience dental phobia or anxiety. In fact, this simple service can be used to address a number of common patient concerns.

Why Consider Sedation?
Sedation dentistry may be useful for patients who suffer from:
- Dental phobia
- Aversion to the sights, sounds, or smells of dental offices
The types of sedation offered by Dr. Schmid may also be very useful for people who have:
- An overactive gag reflex
- Sensitive teeth
- TMJ or jaw discomfort
- Troubles sitting still for extended periods of time
Sedation can be used for both shorter and longer procedures, and may be of particular benefit when services will require extended periods of sitting.

The conscious sedation techniques utilized by Dr. Schmid are safe for most patients, but may not be right for everyone. The best way to learn if you are a good candidate for sedation dentistry is through a one-on-one consultation with Dr. Schmid.
