Although tooth removal is actually a very common and routine procedure, we go the extra mile to make sure that all of our patients are as comfortable and as much at ease as possible during this type of procedure. That’s why we offer a variety of sedation dentistry methods for patients who are undergoing tooth removal or any other procedure that might make them a bit nervous.

Although it’s always preferable to keep your natural teeth, sometimes that is just not possible. On those occasions, tooth removal might be recommended. Fortunately, there are a variety of sedation dentistry methods that our patients can choose from, all of which are designed to make you and your family members as relaxed as possible during your trips to the dentist.
The Most Important Benefits of Sedation Dentistry/Tooth Removal
- It probably goes without saying, but we’ll say it anyway: Dr. Roach will only recommend tooth removal when he believes it is absolutely necessary to do so. In those instances, you can rest assured that having one or more teeth extracted is the best way to regain good oral health.
- Sedation dentistry techniques have advanced significantly over the past few years. Thanks to this remarkable technology, you or your family member can experience little or no discomfort at all during a procedure – not to mention feeling much more at ease during your stay in the dentist chair.
- Another advantage of sedation dentistry is that Dr. Roach will be able to perform more work in a shorter period of time, which means you’ll have to spend less time in our office than you normally would.
What to Expect
There are many different forms of sedation dentistry. Depending on the type of sedation used, you may remember the entire procedure, or have only a vague recollection of the work performed. Some sedation will wear off fairly quickly after the procedure, allowing you to be fully awake and refreshed immediately after your appointment. Other types of sedation may take longer to wear off, which means you’ll need to have someone drive you home from our Austin, TX office after the procedure. Dr. Roach can provide you more information and recommend which form of sedation is right for you or your family member.
