Is Dental Sedation Right for Me?

Conquer Dental Anxiety In San Diego

Dental sedation is a phenomenal option for many people and has its place and purpose. Though we have had great success with dental sedation and a proven track record of safety, dental sedation is not for everyone. We usually offer dental sedation to two main groups of people in the San Diego vicinity.

DENTAL ANXIETY

Many people have a deep fear of the dentist and have struggled with it for years. These people often have neglected smiles because they have put off going to the dentist for so long for fear of pain or the “normal” dental treatment. Many of our older dental sedation patients had traumatic dental experiences in their earlier years before modern dental technology brought speed and comfort in dental treatments up to where it is today. Horror stories of terrible root canals, extractions, drillings, etc. haunt people and cause a deep fear of the dentist into their later years and prevent them from regularly seeing the dentist for needed dental work. As a result, patients procrastinate getting needed hygiene and maintenance which leads to larger and more expensive treatments down the road.

Younger people experience dental anxiety as well. Whether it’s fear of needles, feeling trapped, not trusting a previous dentist, etc. dental sedation can help remove the fear of the dentist so you can get the dental care you need at our La Mesa dentist office.

If you fit in either category, dental sedation may be just the solution you need. Imagine actually feeling relaxed at the dentist. Even if you have the most acute dental anxiety, dental sedation can help you. You may just be amazed at how effective it is.
