If going to the dentist makes you feel panicked, you might avoid teeth cleanings, checkups, and other simple dental procedures that will help you protect your smile. This might mean that you only go to the dentist when your teeth hurt, which is an indication of more significant problems that could mean more invasive treatment procedures.
Did you know that you can avoid a lot of the discomfort of visiting your dentist in Vallejo with routine visits, and you can eliminate anxiety with sedation dentistry?
Also called inhalation sedation, nitrous oxide is breathed in comfortably through a mask you'll wear during your dental appointment. This type of sedation is safe for both adults and children since it doesn't leave any lingering side effects. You'll even be able to drive yourself home and resume your normal activities after using nitrous oxide.
You can also use nitrous during most types of dental procedures so you can feel at ease in the dental chair.
We deliver oral sedation through a sedative taken in pill form about an hour before your appointment. Oral sedation provides deeper relaxation, so you'll almost feel like you were sleeping during your dental procedure. Since the medication has an amnesic effect, it's also likely that you won't remember the details of your dental appointment.
If you choose this level of sedation, it's essential to understand that you'll need a ride to and from your appointment, and you'll also need to plan to take the rest of the day off to rest and recover.
