Sedation Dentistry | San Mateo

Sedation Dentistry | San Mateo

Being apprehensive of the dentist is nothing to be embarrassed about. At San Mateo Dental Arts, we treat many patients who experience high levels of anxiety while in the dental chair. The good news is that you can get the treatment you need without having to endure a racing heart, sweaty skin, or butterflies in your stomach.

San Mateo Dental Arts is proud to offer anxious patients an alternative to fearful dental experiences. Sedation dentistry is a method of using FDA-approved medication to induce a calm, relaxed state. You can use sedation dentistry during any type of treatment, including routine general dentistry checkups as well as smile-enhancing cosmetic dentistry procedures.

During Your Sedation

Sedation Dentistry at San Mateo Dental Arts involves the use of oral medication that is taken before your treatment. You will be conscious while we perform your dental work and will be aware of your surroundings, but extremely relaxed and free of anxiety. You will be able to respond to questions or instructions, but will have little or no memory of the experience afterwards.

Before your sedation treatment, San Mateo Dentist Dr. Sheena Phan will explain the process to you so you know what to expect. We will also explain the difference between sedation and sleep dentistry.

Should You Consider Sedation Dentistry?

Remember that skipping dental visits can endanger your overall health. Conscious sedation is a wonderful way to get the dental care you need without any anxiety. Sedation dentistry might be the perfect option for you if you avoid visiting the dental office for any reason, such as a fear of needles, difficulty getting numb, or a sensitive gag reflex. If you need extensive dental work performed, we can complete multiple treatments during one sitting while you are under sedation.

If you or any of your family members deals with dental anxiety, contact San Mateo Dentist Dr. Phan and her team at San Mateo Dental Arts to learn more about sedation dentistry. We would be happy to discuss your dental needs in person during a consultation.

Sheena is a skilled, efficient dentist with state of the art equipment and employs friendly front office staff and gentle-on-the-mouth hygenists. I drive 40 minutes from Saratoga to see them and it is well worth the commute.

Needed an appointment for a cracked filling and Dr. Phan was very accommodating to open her office to see me during the shelter in place. She and her staff have always been very helpful and do a great job not just for emergencies but with regular dental check ups. Thank you!
