Sedation Dentistry

To begin, sedation dentistry refers to the use of pharmacological agents to calm and relax a patient prior to and during a dental appointment. Certainly, we understand that many people experience fear or anxiety when they visit the dentist.

Therefore, these phobias can prevent certain individuals from receiving the dental care they need. As a result, at Santa Clarita Advanced Dentistry we offer sedation dentistry to create a more comfortable and enjoyable experience for our patients.

Levels of Sedation

We offer 2 types of sedation:

1.       First, minimal sedation. You are awake but the medications make you feel more relaxed.

2.       Second, Conscious sedation. You are wake, but you may feel groggy and in a dreamlike state.

Significantly, many patients throughout the years have reported that our sedation in our office has been life changing and has allowed them to get their dentistry done in a relaxing way for the first time in their lives. We are proud to offer these alternatives in our office.


Nitrous Oxide

Commonly referred to as “laughing gas”, nitrous oxide is a safe and effective sedative agent that is mixed with oxygen and inhaled through a small mask that fits over your nose to help you relax.


Oral Sedation

Oral sedation dentistry is a medical procedure involving the administration of sedative drugs via an oral route, generally to facilitate a dental procedure and reduce patient’s anxiety related to the experience.


IV Sedation & General Anesthesia

IV (intravenous) sedation and general anesthesia are administered through the vein directly to the bloodstream. This allows medications to take effect more quickly. Because the administration of these types of sedation is a little more serious, we typically reserve them for complex or lengthy procedures like oral surgery.
