Find the Right Kind of Dental Sedation for Your Needs

Few dental practices offer the wide range of sedation dentistry that we do. Whether you have mild anxiety or severe dental fear, we are confident that we have a solution to help you get the care that you need. Choose from these four options:

  • Nitrous Oxide – Better known as laughing gas, this sedation has been in use for more than 170 years. It works quickly to calm your nerves and block pain. It also wears off quickly after your treatment, and you won’t experience any lingering grogginess.
  • Oral Conscious Sedation – You take this medication in tablet form prior to your treatment. The effects of this kind of sedation last longer, so you should arrange transportation to and from your appointment if you make this choice.
  • IV Sedation – Our team has the necessary training and licensing to offer this level of sedation at our practice. It works quickly and keeps you in a deeply relaxed state throughout your care.
  • General Anesthesia – For extremely fearful patients, we can provide this highest level of sedation. A licensed anesthesiologist administers it when needed. Few dental practices offer this option.

Don’t let your worries about dental visits stop you from having a healthy and attractive smile. Come to Anacapa Dental Arts Institute for sedation options in Oxnard, CA. Call 805-800-8289, or schedule online to make your appointment.
