Dentist in Pleasanton offers IV and oral conscious sedation for more comfortable dental services
Patients seeking a dentist in the Pleasanton area who wants to ensure a comfortable and anxiety-free dental experience are encouraged to take the time to speak to Drs. Sambhav Jain, Arpana Gupta, and Shivani Gupta of the Center for Implant Dentistry to learn about dental sedation.
Sedation is important for patients to have a positive visit at our dental practice, specifically for those with dental anxieties and those undergoing extensive dental treatment that may result in several hours in the dental chair. We believe that patients should have appropriate sedation available to them for a positive experience, and provide IV sedation and oral conscious sedation for those who need it.
For many simple dental treatments, patients will have local anesthetics administered. These are administered via a needle into the specific area of treatment. Some patients may need several injections to numb the area fully before the procedure begins.
Oral Conscious Sedation
Oral conscious sedation is a sedative that is given orally before the procedure. Patients arrange for transportation to and from their visit, as they are not able to drive while under this medication. Patients are awake and coherent throughout their visit, but go home afterwards to rest. When they wake up, they often have no recollection of their appointment, but their dental work is complete!
For patients who are having extensive treatments done, or those with severe anxieties about the dental office, we offer IV sedation. This medication is administered directly into the bloodstream and it puts many patients to sleep. This method is often suggested for patients who need their wisdom teeth removed or are going through a series of treatments to prepare for dentures. Extensive time in the dental chair can be aided with IV sedation methods.
Patients who are ready to visit a dentist near the Pleasanton area who offers comfortable treatments are welcome to contact the Center for Implant Dentistry and speak with our team of professionals. Our three dentists are highly trained and experienced in providing comprehensive dental care and sedation.
