Many patients who are anxious, fearful, and even phobic about dentistry have discovered that sedation dentistry can offer the perfect, relaxing solution for maintaining good dental health. We use oral sedation (pills), and since patients can often undergo treatment for longer at one sitting, multiple procedures can be completed in fewer visits. If required, the use of nitrous oxide (laughing gas) will enhance your relaxation.
How will you feel? Most patients feel that they have slept through the appointment. You may arrive at our Castro Valley dental office on your own on the day of your sedation appointment, but you must have someone take you home.
The only thing standing between you and getting the dental care you want may be a couple of tablets of medication. It couldn’t be simpler.
