Sedation Dentistry Services for La Mesa and El Cajon
Dental apprehension can be common among both first-time patients and patients who require restorative dentistry services. You may develop dental anxiety that is severe enough to keep you from getting the help you need, even when you are experiencing dental problems.
Luckily, sedation dentistry is available at our La Mesa dental office.
Dr. Richard Hagstrom can help you overcome your dental anxiety. He uses his years of experience and education combined with compassionate care to offer sedation dentistry options for those in the La Mesa and San Diego areas.
Oral Conscious Sedation Dentistry
Dr. Hagstrom, one of San Diego’s premier sedation dentists, was trained at the Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation.
Before any appointment or procedure, you can take an oral conscious sedation tablet that will help you feel relaxed and calm. The effects of the oral conscious sedation tablet can help put you at ease.
You will be awake during the procedure and able to answer questions, but you will be in a state of complete calm and relaxation, so the procedure will seem easier. You should experience less tooth sensitivity and more comfort. Many people don’t even remember the procedure after the oral conscious sedation has worn off.
You will need to designate someone to drive you to and from the dental office, but sedation is completely safe and very effective. You may recover much more quickly and experience less postoperative discomfort than undergoing your procedure without it.
Who is a Good Candidate for Dental Sedation?
Good candidates for sedation dentistry include dental-phobic patients, teens who need their wisdom teeth extracted, patients who don’t numb easily with Novocain, and patients who need several procedures done in one sitting. Sedation dentistry treatment options allow Dr. Hagstrom to be more efficient and to get more dental work done during one appointment.
Dental anxiety is a very common problem, and we are proud to offer sedation options that can help! We want you to feel comfortable at our office and will do whatever we can to make you feel more at ease.
