Watch the video below of Dr. Hulse explaining how he will make you comfortable and get you the smile you deserve
At Austin Artistic Dental, in south Austin, Dr. Jarett Hulse literally meets people everyday who are afraid to go to the dentist. This is an extremely common fear, and we are used to helping people get past their fears so they can get out of pain, get healthy and get that smile they have so desperately wanted for so long.
And we do this without judgement!
Listen to one of our patients describe how she was terrified, and how Dr. Hulse was able to sedate her so she could get the dental care she needed
At Austin Artistic Dental we offer 3 different kinds of sedation to make you comfortable.
NITROUS OXIDE (laughing gas)
The first level and lightest form is nitrous oxide also known as laughing gas. Nitrous oxide is a completely safe gas that allows one to relax more during their visit. We turn on the gas and within minutes you will naturally feel more relaxed. Depending on the patients apprehension and desires we use this with cleanings to complex surgeries. One of the nice things about nitrous oxide is that when the treatment is done, we put you on 100% oxygen and within just a few minutes you feel normal and are ready to drive yourself home.
ORAL CONSCIOUS SEDATION
The next form of sedation with offer is called Oral Conscious Sedation. Some people call it sleep dentistry. This involves Dr. Hulse giving you prescription medications approximately one hour before your appointment. With this you will become completely relaxed and anxiety free. Some people fall asleep, some don’t, but you it always makes the time fly for you and makes hours feel like minutes. During your treatment our experienced sedation team will monitor you throughout your entire visit so that it is completely safe. The medications also have an amnesia effect and often the patient can’t remember the appointment over the next few days, even if they were partially awake during it.
The benefits of oral sedation are great. You can get your health and smile back, without worry, while forgetting the whole incidence. Sounds like a dream!
If you require a large surgery, or need your wisdom teeth removed or have many broken and infected teeth that need to be removed, IV sedation in south Austin may be the best option for you. With IV sedation, you will be completely comfortable, will not be aware of the surgery and will have no memory of the whole procedure afterwards!
Listen to what one of our nervous patients had to say:
As somebody who has in the past had bad dental experiences, I was nervous about trying a new dentist. Yet, from the moment I walked in to Austin Artistic Dental, I immediately felt at home. Dr. Hulse and his team understood my anxiety and worked me through it slowly. You are greeted with one of the best office staff I have ever met. Everybody has a friendly smile on their face. I just had about 4 hours worth of work done (and we are not done yet), and throughout the whole process Dr. Hulse was constantly reassuring that everything was going great. Every member of his team came in to check and make sure that I was ok. (This was important to me as I have developed relationships with the staff) Often people think that Dentists do not have great bed side manor, but I can assure you that Dr. Hulse does. He truly cares about his patients.
Besides Dr. Hulse and his entire staff, his hygienist Holly is AMAZING!! For some getting a cleaning is a scary and painful experience as that was my case. Holly was talking, laughing, and smiling with me the entire time. When you leave her chair, you truly feel like a member of her family. She truly is a ROCKSTAR and I was so blessed to find her at Dr. Hulse office. One of the best parts of the cleaning process is that if you complain of pain, Dr. Hulse is right there to give you more numbing as needed. You can almost see him smiling through his mask knowing that he is helping his patients.
I encourage anybody who suffers from Dental Anxiety to give Dr. Hulse and his team a chance. It will be the best decision that you ever make. Plus you will walk out of the office with a smile you can be proud of. Although going to the dentist is not one of my favorite things to do, seeing Dr. Hulse and his staff does make the visit enjoyable. Who would have thought that you could be laughing leaving a dentist office? Well with this team, you will not only be laughing and happy when you leave, but you leave knowing that the entire team is behind your smile. Although I still have Anxiety going to the dentist, when you walk into the office, those fears go away. This office deserves more than 5 stars.
We also specialize in giving painless shots!
