Premier Care Dental Group is happy to offer sedation dentistry in Pasadena and throughout Southern California. We know that not all patients share our passion and excitement for dentistry. In fact, many patients may outright avoid visiting the dentist for fear of dental work—even to the detriment of their oral and overall wellbeing. For this reason, we are happy to offer our patients sedation for even the most routine and painless procedures. Our goal is to provide great dental care, not admonish patients for reasonable and common phobias.
Dental phobias are not the only reason to seek sedation dentistry. Aside from the obvious relief for surgical operations which are sure to cause pain and discomfort, sedation dentistry may be necessary for patients who are resistant to local anesthesia or have an overly sensitive gag reflex or teeth.
Those fearing needles will also be happy to know that there are options that do not require needles. In cases such as these, patients are simply instructed to take an oral medication before their procedure that calms their nerves. It is also important to note that there are different levels of sedation available, each with its own set of accompanying circumstances and appropriate uses. When you visit your dentist, they will discuss the best course of action with you before proceeding with a plan. In any case, sedation dentistry is safe, with dedicated personnel monitoring your vital signs throughout a procedure.
At Premier Care Dental Group, we endeavor to create an environment that is welcoming to all of our patients; especially if having dental work done is an intimidating prospect for them.
