Sedation Dentistry

Put your nerves at ease

It is extremely common for people to have a phobia of the dentist. Many of the patients that come to see us at Estrella Dental suffer from severe stress and anxiety each time they have to visit us. This is why we offer sedation dentistry to those who we serve. We want to alleviate your dental anxiety and make each trip to our dental office a comfortable and enjoyable one. By offering sedation dentistry, we give our patients the ability to make their dental appointments with confidence and without apprehension. Be sure to check out our blog, “Being Afraid of the Dentist is a Fear of the Past” to learn more about modern dentistry and sedation techniques.

Are You Afraid of the Dentist?

If you have a fear of dental appointments, the caring team at Estrella Dental may be able to help. Drs Estrella will figure out if sedation dentistry is the right choice for you based on your medical history, as well as your current medications. Depending on your level of anxiety, we can determine what the right dosage is. This will also be based on what level of consciousness you desire during your procedure as well. Some people wish to be mildly unaware, while others choose to become so relaxed that they actually fall asleep while we work on their teeth. As your appointment continues, we will monitor you closely to ensure that you are being sedated safely. Your comfort and safety is always our first priority.

Why Should You Choose Oral Sedation?

If you experience any of the following, oral sedation may be the right choice for you:

  • Extreme anxiety and fear when even considering visiting a dental office
  • Putting off dental visits that are imperative to your health because you are frightened
  • Sensitive gag reflex
  • Trouble becoming numb when local anesthetics are used on you
  • Back or neck problems that are made worse by sitting in the dentist’s exam chair

‘‘The entire team, from the front desk to the assistants and dentist, has been so kind and professional. My fillings were quick and pain-free. I feel very at ease and love that the dentist explains everything to me in detail so I have no surprises. He even took me on a tour of the facility which was refreshing and confirmed how clean and state of the art the facility is.’’
