Oral Sedation Dentistry Services
At Dr. Rosenfeld’s office, we understand that dental anxiety is real and can keep you from getting the treatment you need. We offer two different types of sedation dentistry; oral conscious sedation and laughing gas. Sedation dentistry can assist in calming and relaxing patients who normally suffer from anxiety before a dental appointment.
Sedation services can be life-changing for patients who have put off dental care because of their anxiety. If you or your loved ones experience nervousness or fear when you think about a visit to a dentist office, sedation dentistry can help.
Oral Conscious Sedation
Our oral conscious sedation method is administered in the form of oral medication. We provide you with a tablet to take before you come to our office. Due to the nature of oral sedation, you will need a family member or friend to drive you to and from your appointment.
Once you arrive, our team will ensure you feel comfortable and assess if further medication is needed. You’ll feel completely relaxed during your appointment, yet Dr. Rosenfeld will still be able to communicate with you during your treatment.
Laughing gas sedation is administered through a breathing mask that fits over your nose. The gas takes effect almost immediately so you can start relaxing as soon as you start breathing through the mask.
One of the reasons our patients choose laughing gas is because there are little to no side effects, and the gas leaves your bloodstream instantly. You’ll still be able to drive yourself home after your treatment is finished.
Sedation Dentistry With Dr. Rosenfeld in Solana Beach
Laughing gas and oral conscious sedation are completely safe, effective, and reliable. No matter which method you choose, you can enjoy the benefits of sedation dentistry, including:
- Oral sedation dentistry patients can feel completely relaxed and comfortable during their appointment.
- Anxious patients almost always find that their anxiety has subsided, allowing them to remain relaxed and comfortable during treatment.
- In many instances, patients using conscious sedation have reported that they have little or no memory of the appointment, which is often better for anxious patients.
- Patients who use oral conscious sedation or laughing gas remain conscious during treatment. Fortunately, many patients enjoy a deep state of relaxation that allows the treatment or procedure to run smoothly.
Although your dental anxiety may feel debilitating, you no longer need to feel anxious about your visit to Dr. Rosenfeld. Our oral sedation dentistry practice is just one of the ways that Dr. Rosenfeld continually works to make sure our patients are comfortable.
