Sedation Dentistry in Victoria, Texas How Can Sedation Help You?

Since you are more comfortable and relaxed, Dr. Robert Zboril can perform your dental work more quickly. In many cases, he can complete all the necessary care without the need for a second appointment.
Peace of Mind
Sedation erases feelings of fear and anxiety, allowing you to lay back and relax in the dentist's chair. For many of our patients, one treatment with sedation helps them overcome their fears, so they don’t need sedation again.

"One visit with Dr. Zboril...and I am no longer afraid." 5-Star Reviews From Our Victoria, TX, Patients
This place is amazing. I have a severe anxiety when it comes to seeing a dentist and haven't gone nearly my entire life because of it. When I first went in I was shaking and crying from fear. He was very understanding and passed no judgement. The last time I went in I was able to do so with much less anxiety. Dr. Zboril and his staff are some of the kindest and most caring people I have met. Thank goodness for people like them.View on Google
I am VERY afraid of the dentist. Well, I was. I hadn’t been to the dentist in over 15 years because of my fear and anxiety about it. One visit with Dr. Zboril and his nurse Regina and I am no longer afraid. They were so gentle and cared about making me comfortable. I will never go anywhere else.View on Google

When Is Sedation Dentistry Recommended?
While light sedation can be used for routine exams, sedation dentistry is more common for complex procedures that take a long time to complete, such as wisdom tooth removal, dental implants, and full mouth reconstruction. However, the majority of treatments provided by our Victoria, Texas, dentist can be undertaken using sedation dentistry.
Those who suffer from extreme dental phobia can receive regular cleanings and general dental care under mild sedation if it helps them maintain optimal oral health. Sedation dentistry is typically combined with a local anesthetic to ensure maximum comfort for the patient.
The Care You Need & The Results You Want
Sedation dentistry provides a way for nervous patients to receive the dental care they need to maintain a healthy smile. It also allows our dentist to provide restorative dentistry procedures to maximize the impact of your smile. By using sedation, our team of dental professionals is better able to target problems that require more involved procedures, such as:
A dental crown protects a tooth that has been compromised due to trauma or decay. Placed over an affected tooth after treatment, a crown can help protect it from further damage and prevent the need for extraction. Made from materials engineered to withstand normal biting forces while mimicking the light-reflecting properties of enamel, a crown can be color-matched to blend seamlessly with your surrounding teeth.
While a simple procedure, placing a crown does require removing enamel from a tooth and can thus be nerve-wracking for more nervous patients. Sedation dentistry can help you remain relaxed enough to receive a dental crown to help protect and restore your smile.
When a tooth is lost, the tissue in the jawbone begins to deteriorate. As this atrophy continues, it causes surrounding teeth to shift. It can even lead to further tooth loss. Dental implants act as a substitute for missing teeth by providing a strong anchor for an implant-supported restoration such as a bridge, crown, or denture.
However, placing and restoring an implant does require a surgical procedure, which many patients may try to avoid — even at the cost of their oral health. Sedation dentistry can help you stay calm and comfortable throughout treatment so that our dentist can replace your missing teeth with dental implants. This allows you to restore your smile so that you can eat, speak, and smile with confidence again.
