Though it would be wonderful if all people had only the best dental experiences throughout their lives, this is simply not the case. At Sacramento Natural Dentistry, we understand that you may feel a little nervous about seeing the dentist – or a lot! We are happy to offer sedation services that enable our patients to receive the high quality care they need and deserve.
What is sedation dentistry?
Sedation dentistry is a growing field in which dentists undergo training to utilize specific forms of sedative medication. Sedatives are medications that act safely and efficiently on the central nervous system to calm anxiety and fear. On a technical level, the sedative that enters the blood stream has a slowing effect on the nervous system. So while patients treated with sedation are not “put under,” they feel calm and relaxed when they would otherwise be affected by the sounds and sights of the dental office.
What our patients say about Sedation Dentistry Treatment
“Dr. Azouz and his team are absolutely phenomenal! He cares most about your health in general, and pays very close attention to detail… I felt very safe in his care, and he did everything he could to make me comfortable. Dr. Azouz is also very explanatory and wants you to understand everything that is going on. He is constantly communicating and can also be lighthearted to ease the stress if you are as stressed as I am going to a dentist. Looking forward to my next visit.“ Lisa W.
