Many people in San Jose and across the country cope with dental anxiety. In some instances it is so severe, they avoid the dentist entirely, thereby putting their dental health at risk. At Wes Yemoto Esthetic and Holistic Dentistry, we provide a solution with sedation dentistry.
There are several types of sedation dentistry. We offer our patients one of the most effective: oral conscious sedation.
Oral conscious sedation involves taking a sedative about an hour before your scheduled procedure. Most patients don’t go to sleep, although some do. It does put you in a deep state of relaxation.
Oral conscious sedation also has an amnesiac effect, so you’ll remember little, if any, of the procedure when it’s over. You’ll still be quite groggy afterward, and will require a ride home.
Dental anxiety, and even dental phobia, is a surprisingly common condition. As many as twenty percent of Americans cope with it to one degree or another. But don’t put your dental health at risk, when there is a safe and simple solution to the issue.
