Sleep Dentistry vs. Sedation Dentistry
SERVING GEORGETOWN, ROUND ROCK, AND AUSTIN, TEXAS
Sedation dentistry is very different from sleep dentistry, and there are a variety of reasons we do not offer sleep dentistry at our office.
Sleep dentistry is the term dentists use for putting a patient under general anesthesia during his or her dental procedure. Under general anesthesia, the patient falls asleep and remains unconscious during the procedure and some time after it is complete. It requires that a certified anesthesiologist administer the anesthesia and monitor the patient while he or she is unconscious.
We do not use sleep dentistry for our patients because we feel that it is unnecessarily dangerous in most situations. Patients are unable to respond at all during procedures and could experience adverse reactions to such a strong sedative in their systems.
If you are located in the Austin, Round Rock and Georgetown, Texas area and you would like to improve your smile for any reason, contact us today to schedule a complimentary cosmetic dentistry consultation.
What Our Patients Are Saying
Monica and Elizabeth made cleaning and x-RAYS tolerable. We laughed the whole time. Dr Mark was clear and concise. Everyone there has a great sense of humor. I hate going to the dentist but this trip was my best experience to date.
Friendly staff, exceptional patient care
The office is well-appointed, relaxing and the staff treat everyone like family. It's also nice to not feel 'judged' when my dental status is not textbook. Never had a dentist before that didn't give me the hairy eyeball over not flossing every day. I like their holistic approach to health, not just teeth.
Aesthetic Dentistry was professional and accommodating for a dental emergency I experienced. From Emily to Hannah to Dr Duncan I was extremely impressed with not only the customer service but the professionalism and the empathy for my work schedule. Their dental techniques are the best available providing a seamless and pain free experience. I HIGHLY recommend their practice!!
A++. Lovely people in this practice, true gentle dentistry and care. Would recommend anyone, especially someone who hasn't been to the dentist in a while and is nervous. Doctor personally calls his patients the evening of your appointment to follow up. 😎
