Sedation dentistry uses safe methods to help you relax while undergoing dental treatment so you no longer feel anxiety and can focus on something besides the dental procedure. Unless the treatment calls for general anesthesia, you will be awake and conscious during the treatment, just relaxed by mild sedatives.
On top of overcoming anxiety, sedation dentistry is used when one suffers from toothaches, headaches or TMJ disorders who find anesthesia ineffective or for those who simply want a truly painless and pleasant experience.
If you are interested in sedation dentistry, call today to schedule a consultation. Don’t let fear ruin your dental health. Overcome your anxiety and get the healthy, beautiful teeth you deserve from some of the best cosmetic dentists Ventura has available.
When your treatment is complete, you have no recollection of the time it took, the pain, the noise, or the discomfort you were expecting. We are pleased to offer our patients the option of comfortable, safe, and effective sedation dentistry. Patients who benefit from sedation dentistry have:
- High dental anxiety and fear?
- A severe gag reflex?
- Time constraints those who need to get more dentistry done in fewer visits?
- Chronic or acute jaw soreness?
- Physical limitations such as back and neck problems?
- Difficulty getting numb?
- A reluctance to previously complete treatment plans?
- Extensive treatment needs?
- A desire to have dentistry done while you are fully relaxed?
Sedation dentistry may be a good option for you if you are fearful, anxious or uncomfortable at the dentist’s office. There are many reasons you may be interested in sedation methods, such as:
- Bad dental experiences in your past
- Past dental trauma
- Discomfort experienced while in the treatment chair
- Need for multiple procedures to be performed in one appointment
Dental anxiety can be so overpowering that it prevents you from going to your routine dental appointments. When you don’t get the dental care you need, it can be difficult to avoid common dental problems like cavities and gum disease. Sedation dentistry provides relaxation so that you can go to your dental appointments successfully.
I can’t give enough praise for the compassionate & professional care I’ve been given by each and everyone at Anacapa Dental!! Dr. Jivraj is an extremely gentle & kind dentist who made me so comfortable every step of the way through many dental implants! The staff are incredibly kind and personable. I’ve been very impressed by Anacapa Dental and highly recommend them!! I did a lot of research before getting my dental implants….and I knew from the very first appointment that I made the perfect choice!
I am very happy with the whole office. I was very clean, well organized, sincere staff, gentle hands and very caring. I never liked going to the Dental office but my first visit here was enough to make me happy to come back. Dr. J is very knowledgeable and perfection in all that he does. He is good about making sure you know what every step is and what he wants to achieve. AWESOME Office
Competent, kind, caring, and genuinely concerned for my well being. Professional and a knowledgeable staff. The consultation went very well and I was able to relax and get through the process of restorative dental work. The Doctor is well trained by his credentials was at the center of all things and it is obvious the staff respect him as well as like him. Probably the most gentle dentist I have encountered. He was most concerned to give me options for my care. Thank you
Anacapa is simply the best. They are head and shoulders above any other dental office in the country. From friendliness, efficiency and most importantly knowledge ! I have never, ever had better treatment anywhere. Believe me, they know the most up to date treatments anywhere. If you want that million dollar smile go see Anacapa.
At Anacapa Dental Art Institute, we offer two main types of sedation dentistry:
Nitrous Oxide (Laughing Gas):
A light level of relaxation and sedation can be achieved with nitrous oxide gas. You breathe nitrous oxide through a mask placed over your nose, while supervised by the dentist. The great thing about laughing gas is that its effects wear off rapidly once you stop breathing it in. You’ll be able to drive yourself home, and there aren’t any side effects even though you’ll be properly relaxed during treatment.
With a safe, effective pill you take shortly before your treatment, you’ll relax comfortably into a state of conscious sedation. You’ll be awake and able to respond to any instructions from our dentists, but you’ll also be deeply relaxed and won’t remember the appointment afterward.
Dr. Jivraj wants you to feel calm and at-home when you visit our office. Visit us to see how comfortable our practice is and how we can help you overcome dental anxiety.
