Sedation Dentistry in Dripping Springs

At TORC Dental, we offer local anesthesia, oral sedation and laughing gas as our sedation dentistry options.

Local Anesthesia

Local anesthesia is administered through an injection to prevent pain or sensation in a small area during minor procedures. The injection is administered directly to the site where the procedure will occur and works by blocking the pain receptors in the area. This sedation method does not affect your consciousness, and the effects will typically only last for a couple of hours.

Oral Sedation

Oral sedation refers to the medication that may be prescribed to you by our dentist. Oral sedation is taking prior to treatment and helps patients relax during their dental appointments. Usually, the medication is administered through a pill that you will take orally. The pill induces moderate sedation, putting you in a calm and relaxed state.

Laughing Gas

Laughing gas is administered through a mask that is worn the nose during your treatment or procedure. It is a gas that has no taste or smell because it is colorless and odorless. When inhaled, it relaxes patients and puts them in a relaxed and worry-free state. It works quickly, safely and its effects quickly wear off.

The staff is friendly and very competent. There was no wait for my appointment, so I was in and out in no time, and the facilities are of high quality. I'm so pleased I've found a reliable place to replace my previous dentist.

Great service from the moment I enquired about getting my wisdom teeth removed. The receptionist answered all my questions professionally and was always so friendly. The Doctor explained everything I needed to know before and after the surgery. I definitely recommend them to anyone!
