Sedation Dentistry in San Diego CA
Dental Anxiety is Very Common
According to some research, up to 75 percent of Americans have some level of dental phobia, with 20 percent avoiding dental care because of this fear. If you are afraid of dental procedures, we want you to know that your comfort and safety are our top priorities at Radiant Dental Arts.
Dental Anxiety vs. Dental Phobia
Sedation dentistry is frequently misunderstood as a method of inducing sleep. Most sedatives, in reality, allow the patient to remain awake throughout the surgery. Some drugs cause drowsiness as a side effect, however nitrous oxide and oral conscious sedation help to reduce anxiety during dental visits.

It is important to have a friend accompany you while using any type of sedation. Since sedatives are sometimes given the night before a dentist appointment, driving to or from the office is not recommended.
