What is sedation dentistry?

Sometimes called “sleep dentistry,” sedation dentistry techniques help to put you at ease when you visit Santa Clarita Advanced Dentistry. Fear of going to the dentist is a common phobia, even though conventional contemporary dental techniques are largely painless.

Some people remain bothered by the sounds and sensations of dental procedures, even when these don’t cause pain. If this is you, the dentists will work with you to keep you comfortable.

There are different strengths of sedation that relieves the stress and anxiety you feel, and creates an environment that’s relaxing. The levels of sedation generally fall into these categories:

  • Mild sedation – you’re awake and aware, but relaxed
  • Moderate sedation – you’re conscious, but you may slur your words and the dental procedure may be dream-like and difficult to recall
  • Deep sedation – you’re at or over the edge of consciousness, but are easily awakened
  • General anesthesia – you’re completely over the edge of consciousness

How does the dentist help you relieve anxiety?

The Santa Clarita Advanced Dentistry team works hard to establish trusting relationships to help you feel confident about your care and more relaxed during treatment. Before treatment begins, you receive information about your recommended treatment and how it can help you have better oral health. This lets you know what to expect during and after your care.

We want you to feel comfortable and relaxed when you come to the office. In addition to providing sedation during treatment, Santa Clarita Advanced Dentistry also offers:

  • Free Wi-Fi and beverages
  • Welcome gifts
  • A free treasure chest for kids
  • An in-house dental plan to relieve anxiety about the cost of your care

If you are feeling anxious or have any concerns, please talk with one of the highly-skilled team members at Santa Clarita Advanced Dentistry. Our goal is to make you feel confident in your choice of care.

Is sedation dentistry safe?

Yes! Time-tested sedation techniques help prevent discomfort and relieve anxiety. The techniques Santa Clarita Advanced Dentistry uses are customized for your individual needs.

The staff reviews your medical history to make sure the sedation used is right for you, and they monitor you throughout your treatment so you can just relax.
