Let Us Ease Your Dental Anxiety

We Have Sedation Options For Every Procedure

If you struggle with dental anxiety, take heart—you’re one of millions of Americans who have dental anxiety issues. We’re sympathetic, and will do everything possible to ease your concerns during your visit to our Dana Point, CA office. Our sedation options can provide you maximum comfort before, during and after any procedure. Dr. Eric Baker and Dr. Tim Betita can administer general anesthesia, the most effective way to prevent pain and dental anxiety during some procedures. Certain procedures call for a prescription oral sedative, which you take before you leave home for your appointment. Its calming effects begin before you even arrive! IV sedation offers similar benefits, but is administered throughout your procedure. With these sedation options you’ll need to have someone else drive you to and from your appointment, as you will not immediately be able to safely operate a vehicle.

Nitrous oxide can completely eliminate your fear during a procedure, and wears off quickly afterward. We also use local anesthetic to numb your mouth, often in combination with other forms of anesthesia, or by itself for our least invasive procedures. You won’t have to make any special transportation arrangements for these types of anesthesia.

Avoid The Dangers Of Dental Anxiety

Dental anxiety may make you fear even the most basic dental procedures. Unfortunately, fear can become the least of your concerns if you’re unable to overcome it. This common condition may cause you to avoid seeking dental care, or to ignore troublesome symptoms in the hope that they’ll simply go away. As a result, you might allow some easily treatable conditions to worsen, or pass up the benefits that early detection can provide for more serious health problems. This can lead you to experience more pain, undergo more procedures, and incur more costs. With the broad range of sedation options we make available to you here in our Dana Point, CA office, there’s no reason for you to deal with any of these difficulties!
