Oral Conscious Sedation is an excellent answer to overcome anxiety and fears.
Patients who are more anxious may choose an oral medication that is stronger than nitrous oxide. Our office uses sedatives that have been well-documented for their safety and effectiveness. By taking a small pill, you will feel more relaxed and comfortable than you ever imagined. You may feel sleepy and at the end of your treatment, you almost won’t remember you were at the dental office at all!
Sedation is also an option for patients with any of the following condition:
- Jaw discomfort or difficulty controlling muscles for prolonged periods of time
- Patients who have several lengthy procedures needed
- Difficulty reacting to local anesthesia
- Strong gag reflex
Our staff is happy to answer any questions you may have about sedation dentistry. Just call our Bakersfield CA office to learn more, or to schedule a consultation.
