Sedation Dentistry Anaheim, CA

Do you experience anxiety when thinking about visiting the dentist? You are not alone. According to a study, 61% of people suffer from dental fear, and almost 4% have never seen a dentist. At Dentist of Anaheim, we understand your fear and offer a range of dental sedation options to help you relax and alleviate pain during your dental appointment.

What is Dental Sedation in Anaheim?

Dental sedation, also referred to as "sleep dentistry," is a method of using sedation to keep a patient relaxed during a dental procedure. At Dentist of Anaheim, we specialize in three types of dental sedation: conscious sedation, twilight sedation, and unconscious sedation, with each providing a different level of sedation.

Conscious Sedation

During conscious sedation, you will remain awake during your dental appointment. This method helps relax you while also easing pain. Conscious sedation is achieved through nitrous oxide, anesthesia, or oral medication, and is commonly used for routine cleanings, dental fillings, and root canals.

Twilight Sedation

Twilight sedation induces a semi-lucid twilight state that makes you feel very relaxed during your dental appointment, almost like you are dreaming. This type of sedation is administered through IV or nitrous oxide.

Unconscious Sedation Anaheim CA

Unconscious Sedation

Unconscious sedation, also known as general anesthesia, puts you to sleep completely, so you are not awake during dental treatment or surgery. Unconscious sedation is administered through IV or a breathing mask.

Oral Sedation

Oral sedation involves taking medication orally, typically benzodiazepines such as Valium or Ativan, to help you relax.

Nitrous Oxide

Nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, is a fast-acting measure to help you relax during your dental appointment.

What to Expect During Dental Sedation in Anaheim

Each sedation technique is administered differently, and our experts will explain the process and answer any questions you may have. It is crucial to have someone drive you home from your dental appointment whenever you undergo any type of sedation process that can cause drowsiness.

What is the Cost of Dental Sedation?

The cost of dental sedation depends on the sedation method used, with some options, such as IV treatment, adding a cost to your procedure. Dental insurance may help with the expense, and our friendly Anaheim team will go over all costs with you before performing any services.
