Unfortunately, dental anxiety is an issue that many people suffer with. So, if you’re a victim of dental anxiety, you’re not alone. This makes dental appointments scary and stressful, and our Rock Rose Dental dental team never wants you to feel that way when you come into our office. So, if necessary, we will be happy to offer nitrous oxide or oral sedation to help you feel more relaxed and comfortable in the dental chair.

Nitrous oxide is a light, flavored gas that is released from a mask that is placed over your nose. Once it is inhaled through the nostrils for a few minutes, you will feel a bit tingly and light headed. Most of all, you’ll feel relaxed and comfortable in the dental chair.

Oral sedation is a pill that you will take orally about an hour before you come into our office. Depending on the dose given to you, you will feel drowsy, groggy, relaxed, and comfortable. You might even fall asleep during your treatment. This sedative will help you finally relax in the hands of the dentist.

And finally, we also offer IV sedation for your dental anxiety. This type of sedation is given through your veins, or intravenously. One benefit of this type of sedation is that our doctor can sedate you quickly and the dosage is easily adjusted to keep you comfortable. Another benefit is that you are conscious during the sedation, even though you may fall asleep as you are so relaxed. If you do fall asleep, you may not remember the entire procedure.

If you are interested in using dental sedation in Roseville, California, please call our office at 916-784-3337 before your appointment and tell us the details about your situation. We are happy to see which option is best for you and we are also happy to help you have the best dental experience possible. We look forward to hearing from you!
