Portola Dental Group is dedicated to helping those who have dental fear and anxiety get the treatment they need. If you are avoiding the dental office because of your fear and anxiety, there are solutions available. We understand that local anesthesia is not enough to overcome the psychological factor of dental anxiety and offer sedation to put you at ease during your treatment.

Oral sedation is a conscious sedation that allows you to stay awake during the procedure but in a complete state of relaxation. You will be able to respond to the dentist and staff but will not feel any pain. It’s important to be able to communicate with your dentist during treatment, and conscious sedation is an excellent choice for fearful patients.

Conscious sedation does not eliminate pain, in most cases you will need to have a local anesthetic during the procedure, too. This method allows your dentist to administer the needed medication while your mind wanders elsewhere, leaving you at ease during the procedure.

Here at Portola Dental Group, we understand how difficult it can be to overcome your fears and believe that oral sedation is the method to help you do just that. You deserve the best care for your teeth and smile.

If you have any questions about oral conscious sedation, don’t hesitate to contact us today at (760) 346-1414.
