Did you know that over 30% of the population avoids visiting the dentist due to fear and anxiety? Dental phobia prevents people from maintaining a healthy and functional smile. A solution to this is sedation dentistry! Common sedatives may include tranquilizers, nitrous oxide, anti-anxiety medications, or depressants administered by an experienced professional. Sedatives will make you feel extremely sleepy, and you may forget the entire experience making it feel like you slept through the dental visit! These options work well for a variety of cases, including:

  • Those with specific phobias of dentists or dental procedures
  • People who have had bad dental procedure experiences
  • Sensitive oral nerves
  • People who suffer from a general anxiety disorder

If you’re affected by any of these scenarios, we recommend talking to your dentist! If you want to set up a dental appointment with California Dental Care, give us a call at (707) 741-6090 or contact us through the form on our website.
