Austin Dentist John Christian Schiro, DDS Providing Sedation Dentistry to Ease Patient’s Fears

May 16, 2012

AUSTIN, Texas, May 16, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — John Christian Schiro, DDS, an Austin, Texas cosmetic and reconstructive dentist, is providing dental treatments that enhance patient comfort through the use of sedation dentistry. Sedation dentistry is a popular alternative for dental patients who experience high-anxiety or fear when visiting the dentist. “Sedation dentistry” refers to the use of pharmacological agents to relax a patient prior to and during their dental treatment. This allows “dental-phobics” to overcome their fears and have much needed treatment. In many cases, patients say they don’t even remember the actual dental procedure. They just recall a restful, dreamlike state.

“According to the Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation approximately 30 percent of the population is afraid of going to the dentist,” stated John Schiro, DDS – cosmetic and sedation dentist in Austin, Texas. “This hidden phobia often prevents people from seeking out necessary dental care to correct problems with their teeth, jaw and smiles. Sedation dentistry can help these people overcome their fear and get the help they need.”

Sedation dentistry offers the following benefits:

  • A reduced level of anxiety about visiting the dentist’s office
  • Enhanced patient comfort during dental treatments
  • Improved dental health for those who otherwise might not see a dentist

To help people ease their fears of going to the dentist, Austin Cosmetic Dentistry is offering its patients the choice of three of the latest sedation options:

  1. IV sedation (optional for “high-fear” patients)
  2. Nitrous oxide (also called “laughing gas”)
  3. Oral-conscious sedation (in pill form)
