Dublin, CA, dentist offers sedation for dental fears and anxieties

Sedation for Dental Fear in Dublin Ca Area

Dublin, CA, patients uneasy about visiting the dentist may have dental anxiety. Fear and nervousness over dental appointments are common with both children and adults but don’t have to keep patients from visiting the dentist. With sedation dentistry, many patients can use oral conscious sedation for dental appointments with Dr. Munira Lokhandwala and the team at StarBrite Dental.

What is sedation dentistry?

Many dentists understand that dental fears can keep patients from visiting the dentist regularly. A simple cleaning and examination may cause anxieties in individuals of all ages. However, with sedation dentistry, patients can feel at ease for their next appointment. 

What type of sedation is available at StarBrite Dental?

Dr. Munira Lokhandwala is pleased to provide patients with sedation methods such as oral conscious sedation. Oral conscious sedation is the use of a medication that is prescribed to the patient before their upcoming appointment. This medication is obtained at the pharmacy and taken approximately thirty minutes to one hour prior. Patients arrange transportation to and from their dental visit as it is unsafe for them to drive while the medication is in effect. Patients arrive conscious, awake, and relaxed for their entire visit before leaving with their dental work complete. Some patients go home to rest afterwards and awaken with little to no memories of the appointment. This makes it easier than ever to get anxious patients out for their necessary dental visits.

What are the benefits of sedation dentistry with oral conscious sedation?

The advantages of using oral conscious sedation include:

  • Calm and relaxation before visiting the office and during the appointment
  • The ability to have all types of dental work done while conscious and awake
  • Being able to answer questions and follow instructions during the procedure
  • An affordable and effective way of addressing dental anxieties that may have kept patients from getting necessary care
