At Oakland Dental Care, we understand that some patients experience anxiety when visiting the dentist. We are pleased to offer our patients sedation dentistry to alleviate any anxiety and provide comfort during dental procedures.
Conscious oral sedation is an alternative minimal sedation that allows you to remain awake but relaxed. For people who have a fear of dental procedures, conscious sedation may take away some of the anxiety. The doctor will combine the use of oral sedation along with a local anesthetic so you have little to no discomfort. You should plan to have someone bring you to the appointment and be available to drive you home following treatment.
Please talk to our knowledgeable staff to see if sedation dentistry could be helpful for you.
