We are always very gentle with our patients, but we understand that many patients still struggle with anxiety when in the dental chair. Our dentists and team offer sedation dentistry in Bakersfield, California, to keep you calm and comfortable while in our care. We also have an in-house anesthesiologist who can provide sedation for very anxious patients. If you would like to learn more about our sedation options, call Capital Dental Group at 661-861-8000 to schedule an appointment with our general dentists and dental specialists.
If negative experiences with dental offices in the past have made you nervous about seeking dental treatment, or if you suffer from other forms of dental anxiety, we recommend you talk with our dentists about the sedation dentistry options we offer. It is important that you receive the care you need, and we do not want anxiety, a sensitive gag reflex or difficulty getting numb to stand in the way of your oral health.
When it comes to sedation dentistry, you have many options available to you. While sedative medication in general is designed to help you feel comfortable and relaxed during your treatment, milder sedatives will simply help you relax while deeper forms of sedation will ensure that you are unconscious throughout your treatment. Before you come to our office for your treatment, our dentists will discuss your comfort levels in the office and help you decide which form of sedation will be best to suit your needs.
Regardless of the type of sedation you choose, our team will be with you to monitor you closely for the duration of your visit and treatment, making sure you are safe. We will also provide you with directions on how to prepare for your treatment and the best ways to recover once the treatment is complete and the sedation has worn off. For some forms of sedation, we ask that you prepare a ride to and from your appointment as you will not be able to safely drive.
