Our dentist and team understand that visiting the dental office can be stressful and that many people feel uncomfortable when receiving treatments. We want you to feel at ease when you visit Hacienda Heights Family Dentistry, and we offer sedation dentistry to help you relax and receive the treatments you need without difficulty. Sedation dentistry is recommended for anyone who has dental anxiety, a very sensitive gag reflex, difficulty getting numb or nervousness when visiting our office.
There are two forms of sedation dentistry available at our office: nitrous oxide and oral conscious sedation.
Nitrous oxide, or laughing gas, is a mild sedative that works via inhalation. Our dentist may recommend nitrous oxide to help you manage dental anxiety and feel more relaxed. During your appointment, we will provide you with a nose mask, and afterwards, the effects will wear off a few minutes after you have stopped inhaling the gas.
Oral conscious sedation is provided in the form of a pill that you take before your appointment. By the time you begin treatment, you should feel completely at ease. If you receive oral sedation, you will need to have someone with you to drive you home.
No matter which type of sedation you receive, our dentist and team will monitor you closely to ensure that you are safe and comfortable.
