Sedation Dentistry - Laguna Hills, CA
No More Fear or Discomfort
Medication to help you relax or even sleep during dental procedures for painless dental care
Sedation dentistry enables patients who may have a low pain threshold, very sensitive teeth, a gag reflex, or moderate-to-severe anxiety the ability to undergo more advanced procedures for teeth and gum health. At Rancho Laguna Family Dentistry, we use a Board certified Medical and Dental anesthesiologists to administer an IV sedation that puts you to sleep safely and comfortably, and provides for the ultimate painless dental care.
What is Sedation Dentistry or “Sleep Dentistry”?
Sedation dentistry, sometimes called “Sleep Dentistry,” is a safe, gentle option used to help patients relax while they are having dental treatment. Medication will be used but you usually remain awake, unless you opt for a general anesthetic which will make you sleep.
Dr. Shalaby will discuss the sedation options with you so that you can choose the one you prefer and which the doctor feels is best suited to your circumstances:
As well as being sedated, Dr. Shalaby will still apply a local anesthetic into your gum so that you will not feel any pain while he works on your teeth.
