Sedation Dentistry

If the thought of a trip to the dentist makes you feel somewhat anxious, then you are not alone! Fear of the dentist in some form or another is reported in up 75% of people visiting the dentist. Our dentists make every effort to alleviate this stress. The first step on your path to an anxiety-free dental visit is to understand what Sedation Dentistry is and how it may benefit you. You can trust that our dentists are here to help you manage your dental fears and help you move forward on a path to optimal oral health.

How is Sedation administered?

Sedation Dentistry uses various sedative options to achieve a relaxed, easy and calm state in our patients. The sedatives we use range from mild to moderate in their effect and may be administered by our Monterey Dentists in one of three ways:

  • Laughing Gas
  • Oral Medication Sedation
  • Intravenous (IV) Sedation

What type of Sedation Dentistry is best for me?

When considering which type of sedation dentistry may be right for you, it is important to disclose to our Dentists any drugs or medications you may be using so that we can select the type of sedation that is best for you.

  • We suggest that you bring a detailed list of your medical history to your initial consultation, including any medications and nutritional supplements you may be using.
  • Contact us in advance to book your initial consultation appointment.

What are the benefits of Sedation Dentistry?

  • Allows people experiencing dental anxiety or fear to stop avoiding regular dental hygiene and periodontal treatments.
  • The perception of time a patient experiences during a visit feel like minutes rather than long periods of time.
  • Fewer appointments & dental treatments are no longer out of reach.
