Did you know that over 35 million Americans experience some type of fears about visiting the dentist? If you are one of them, you are not alone.
What is sedation dentistry?
Sedation dentistry is a modern approach with the use of sedatives to help patients feel less anxious about dental procedures. With sedation dentistry, painful procedures such as full mouth reconstructions are made possible and painless.
IV Sedation in Dentistry
Did you know that Dr. Zak Dental Care – San Diego is one of less than 1 % of all California dental offices that is licensed to perform IC Sedation?
While less than 1% of Californian dentists are licensed to perform IV sedation, our office has an impeccable two-decade record of this service. This procedure involves the intravenous injection of a sedative that makes the patient drowsy to provide pain relief during various procedures and surgeries. This type of sedation provides the ultimate comfort that pill, or gas sedation cannot provide.
Nitrous Oxide Sedation in Dentistry
How is Nitrous Oxide Administered?
Nitrous Oxide Sedation, also more commonly known as “Laughing Gas” is a mixture of nitrous oxide (N2O) and oxygen that is inhaled through a nasal mask. This extremely popular and effective form of sedation helps relieve pain and help’s you stay relaxed during long and potentially painful procedures. If you are anxious or fear your next procedure, ask one of our dental specialists at Dr. Zak Dental Care – San Diego if Nitrous Oxide Sedation is right for you.
Oral Sedation in Dentistry
What is Oral Sedation?
Oral sedation, which is most easily administered, consists of taking a prescribed sedative pill the night before the procedure and/or several hours before the procedure. Once the procedure begins, you will feelcalm, relaxed and pain free. If opting for an oral sedative, we, at Dr. Zak Dental Care – San Diego, advise that someone drive you to and from your dental appointment.
