If dental fear or anxiety has been keeping you away from our office, worry no more. San Diego California Dental Group offers sedation dentistry to help ease your fears and make your next dental visit a breeze! We provide both oral and IV sedation to help guide you into a deeply relaxed state, allowing you to receive the comfortable care you need without any stress. No matter how minor or complex your dental needs may be, our talented team will ensure you receive the care you need, stress free.
Sedation dentistry is safe, easy, and effective. Sedation dentistry is an ideal method of care for patients who experience any of the following:
• Extremely sensitive teeth or gums
• A strong gag reflex
• Fear of needles or dental tools
• Previous dental trauma
• Extensive dental work
If you experience high stress or anxiety when going to dentist or even thinking about visiting the dentist, sedation dentistry can help you.
Oral sedatives are perhaps the most common form of sedation dentistry. Patients will take a small pill prior to their appointment, causing them to feel deeply relaxed and drowsy. Though you will remain conscious throughout the procedure, you won’t feel any discomfort or be very responsive to what’s happening around you. It is not uncommon for patients to fall asleep while under the effects of sedation dentistry.
IV Sedation is another method we offer, and it acts in a similar way to oral sedation. Depending on the extent of your anxiety, we will determine the best dose to give you for treatment. This can be increased if needed. IV sedation is the best route for the deepest sedation possible.
You will need someone to take you to and from your dental visit for both oral and IV sedation.
At San Diego California Dental Group, we are committed to keeping you happy and healthy by providing the best possible care. Call or visit us today to learn more about sedation dentistry. We can help you conquer your fears!
