Sedation Dentist Dana Point
Sedation dentistry is a service that our experts have always excelled at. We want to ensure your dental visit is as comfortable, safe, and pleasant an experience as you will ever receive.
We utilize nitrous oxide and oral conscious sedation to help create a calming effect on our patients as they undergo treatment. Nitrous oxide is a conscious sedative that will help in reducing the anxiety that patients feel during dental treatments.
It is a mild sedative that will not make you conscious but reduce your responses to any sensations during the treatment. The effects of nitrous oxide wear off immediately after the treatment, so your chances of experiencing any side effects will be low.
Oral Conscious sedation, also known as, sleep, twilight or relaxation dentistry, is achieved through the use of sedatives we provide at the beginning of your appointment. These medications allow you to be comfortable and provide the beneficial side effect of brief amnesia which will erase any memory of the procedure.
For a sedation treatment, we generally prescribe a sedative medication for you to take just before your appointment to ensure you will be relaxed the next day. Our team will be monitoring you during the entire procedure.
After the treatment, you should not be feeling any side effects but our specialists will be available for contact if you’re experiencing any unusual feelings. Once you have your first look at your new smile, you are free to show it off to your friends and family!
