I am afraid of the dentist. Can you help?
At Platinum Smiles Family Dentistry, we completely understand that some patients have an intense fear of the dentist. That is why we currently offer conscious sedation in our Brentwood, CA dental office. We know that your past experiences can affect how you feel about dentistry today, and it is our goal to make your dental visit the most relaxing and enjoyable ever.
Conscious sedation dentistry utilizes oral medication, instead of an IV, to sedate patients for dental procedures, allowing them to relax completely. Instead of feeling anxious, imagine being calm, drowsy, and in a dreamlike state for your appointment. Once your procedure is complete, you will likely have little or no memory of your procedure.
Conscious sedation can help you if you have a difficult time getting numb. Sometimes anxiety can prevent the numbing medication from working properly. Because you will be relaxed from sedation, you won’t have to worry about feeling anxious or feeling any of your procedure. We will make sure your treatment is pain-free.
Are you wondering if conscious sedation dentistry is the right route for your dental care? Call our Brentwood, CA dental office and one of our helpful and compassionate team members will schedule an evaluation to determine if you are a good candidate for oral conscious sedation.
