Dental Sedation Options in Lodi, CA | Gary Silva, DDS
Are you scared of the dentist? Maybe just a bit anxious about visiting our office? You are certainly not alone. Many people across the country feel a bit of fear or anxiety when confronted with visiting the dentist. That’s why we have designed our practice to focus on our patients’ comfort. We want each and every one of our patients to have a relaxing, pleasant experience, and we have devised a way to reach that goal. Dental sedation, along with a few comfort amenities, can help you feel relaxed and at ease while in our care.
Oral Sedation Medication
Oral conscious sedation is a heavier level of sedation. This type of sedation should be used for patients who are fearful or very anxious about a procedure. It can also be used during longer or more complicated procedures in order to help the patient feel at ease. Oral sedation is administered via a pill or tablet and creates a sort of grogginess. You will need to have a friend or family member drive you to and from our office if you elect to use oral sedation. You will be conscious throughout the procedure, though you will feel very relaxed. If you are undergoing a complicated procedure or are afraid of the dentist, this type of sedation may be for you.
We also offer a variety of dental comfort options in order to help you truly feel at home. In addition to our friendly staff and great atmosphere, we have invested in the most comfortable dental chairs we could find. They are soft and keep you comfortable, even throughout long procedures. We also offer soft pillows and blankets in order to help you stay warm and relaxed. If that’s not enough, we offer water and coffee to our patients while they wait to be seen. We want to help you have a great experience at our office. Our comfort amenities are just part of the way we do that.
