What is Sedation Dentistry?

Dental Sedation With Your Ladera Ranch Dentist

”SedationSedation dentistry is a form of modern dentistry administered by sedation dentists designed to help patients who suffer from dental anxiety to be calmer and more relaxed during treatment. This form of dentistry has been shown to be effective in helping patients with a variety of dental issues besides dental anxiety, such as dental phobias, fear of the dentist, as well as providing the opportunity for more effective treatment during long visits.

At Hales Parker Dentistry near Rancho Santa Margarita and Mission Viejo, we offer three different types of sedation dentistry including laughing gas, conscious sedation, and IV sedation. Depending upon your need, our skilled team will help you determine which form of sedation dentistry is best for your situation. If you ever have questions about the forms of treatment available to you, don’t be afraid – ask, and we will do our very best to help answer your questions so that you can make an educated decision about the direction of your care.

Some dentists refer to certain forms of sedation dentistry as sleep dentistry, however we find this misleading and inaccurate. Most frequently conscious sedation is often called sleep dentistry in some circles, but this in particular is misleading as patients are not actually asleep during oral conscious sedation, and can continue to interact with the dentist as necessary. Were you actually a sleep it would be problematic as it is sometimes necessary for you to interact with the dentist to ensure the very best treatment results. For this reason at Hales Parker Dentistry we do not refer to conscious sedation or any other form of sedation dentistry we provide as sleep dentistry as we feel this is a misleading practice for sedation dentists.
