Oral Sedation Dentistry Services for Encinitas, Solana Beach & Caramel Valley, California
Oral Sedation Dentistry Services
Anxious patients don’t need to worry at Dr. Rosenfeld’s office in Solana Beach, CA. Here, we offer two different types of sedation dentistry procedures. Oral sedation dentistry treatments calm and relax patients who normally suffer from extreme anxiety before a dental appointment.
Our treatments can be life changing for patients who have put off dental care because of this anxiety. If you or your loved ones get nervous or scared about a visit to a dentist office, sedation dentistry can help. At our office we offer both oral conscious sedation and nitrous oxide.
Oral Conscious Sedation
Our oral conscious sedation method is a type of oral sedation dentistry procedure that is administered to a patient by tablet. We will give you a tablet to swallow before you come to our office. When you arrive, our team will make you comfortable. Once the affects of the tablet have set in, we will begin your procedure. If you take an oral conscious sedation tablet, you will need to arrange for a ride to and from the dentist office.
Nitrous oxide sedation is a sedation dentistry procedure that is administered using nitrous oxide gas. The gas is fast acting, and dissipates quickly enough after the procedure that you are safe to drive.
Both of these methods are completely safe, effective and reliable. No matter which method you choose you will get to enjoy the full benefits of sedation dentistry, including:
- Oral sedation dentistry patients feel completely relaxed and comfortable during their appointment.
- Anxious patients will find that their anxiety has been alleviated. Patients who suffer from dental anxiety will even be able to enjoy their visit.
- In many instances, patients have reported that they have little or no memory of the appointment after it is over.
- Patients who use either sedation dentistry method are awake enough to answer questions and remain conscious, but they are in such a deep state of relaxation that even if they’ve experienced anxiety in the past, the procedure will not bother them.
No matter how bad your dental anxiety might be, you no longer have to feel anxious about your visit to Dr. Rosenfeld.
