Our practice is unique in that we specialize in treatment for patients who want or need sedation dentistry due to dental phobia, anxiety, special needs, or other concerns. Dr. Kook has trained with some of the world’s most prominent specialists in dental sedation and he uses state-of-the-art equipment for our patients’ safety and comfort.
We offer the following sedation dentistry options at Oakland Dental Care:
Conscious Oral Sedation
Conscious oral sedation is an incredibly effective and safe option that provides significant sedation for extremely anxious patients. It allows you to completely relax during your procedure while remaining awake and aware of your surroundings. Patients who fear dental procedures do very well with this form of sedation. We use a combination of a prescription oral sedative and local anesthetic to ensure that you are calm and comfortable while we work.
Because the medication can take a few hours to wear off, you need to have someone bring you to and from your appointment.
