Does your heart start pounding at the mere thought of having a cavity filled? Do you get sweaty palms when you drive by a dental practice? If you cope with dental anxiety, then sedation dentistry from Peninsula Center of Cosmetic Dentistry in Los Altos CA can help.
Dental anxiety is common: millions of Americans dread going to the dentist. In some cases it is so severe it becomes dental phobia. There is a tendency in some of these people to skip the dentist altogether.
The trouble with that is it puts your dental health at risk. To counteract dental anxiety or phobia, we offer four levels of sedation. This way, you can have a wide range of options and make the right choice for you.
- Minimal Sedation: Awake, but in a relaxed state.
- Moderate Sedation: Affects motor skills and memory of the procedure.
- Deep Sedation: A “twilight” state at the edge of consciousness.
- General Anesthesia: Completely unconscious.
