Sedation Dentistry Provides Comfortable Care

When you have to undergo oral surgery to protect your smile’s health and beauty, you may feel a little nervous. What if the process is painful? With sedation dentistry, your Vista, CA, dentist can use sedation dentistry to help patients with dental anxiety feel calm and relaxed when undergoing dental implant placement or tooth extraction!

Who Benefits from Oral Surgery?

Our team provides oral surgery for patients with missing teeth, or those with wisdom teeth soon to erupt. We can also address severely damaged teeth following a dental emergency with custom restorations following a root canal procedure. Essentially, when treatment requires more than a filling or crown, we can help and make sure your treatment is comfortable! When we provide these procedures, we take care to ensure the results are not only optimal, but that our patients enjoy a positive experience at our office.

Our Calming Solutions

Our team will look at your weight, age, medical history, and anxiety levels to choose the right sedation option for you. We have three different selections. With nitrous oxide, we provide sedation with a mask over the nose. People inhale the gas and enter a calm state, with little to no memory of the procedure, all while remaining conscious and able to respond to the dentist. The effects wear off right away, so you can often return to work or school, or even drive yourself home.

With oral sedation, we provide a more substantial calming impact, with the sedation taken in a pill or liquid form before the procedure begins. You may need to avoid food and drink for the eight hours prior to the procedure, and the effects will be deeper. Patients are still conscious, but the effects take time to wear off, so you will need someone to bring you home afterward.

The deepest calming agent available is IV, administered intravenously for an immediate calming effect. You will be very relaxed and have no memory of the procedure, but will still be conscious. Again, the effects take time to wear off completely, so have someone ready to bring you home.


Our team will provide detailed aftercare instructions and prescriptions for any necessary medications, so you can enjoy a faster healing period. If you have any questions, then give our team a call today. Our team can offer durable and long-lasting tooth replacement with dental implants, so you can smile with confidence, whether you have lost one tooth or several. Everyone deserves to have a full smile, and to enjoy a comfortable visit to our office.
