Advanced Comfort Dental Sedation in Santa Clarita, CA
Benefits of Comfort Sedation
- No Fear
Comfort sedation is the best option for patients who experience fear of dentist’s office. Sedation reduces fear and anxiety and produces a pleasant state of relaxation.
- Time Saving
With comfort sedation, the patients feel like their procedure lasts only few minutes. Sedation saves your time: many dental procedures that are time consuming can be preformed in less time.
- Little or No Memory of the Procedure
Sedation leaves a little or no memory of the procedure. After the procedure, possible you will remember only few or none of details. The amnesia effect is beneficial, especially in case of certain dental procedures which can be a traumatic experience for the patient.
Sedation helps the patient undergo dental care comfortably and without any pain.
- Relaxed State
Sedation helps people who have no control of their movement stay still during the procedure. It allows the dentist do the work without patient’s resistance.
- Better Quality of Treatment
When the patient is under sedation, it is easier for the dentist to concentrate on the procedure without worrying about patient’s movements. Sedation also facilitates the healing process and reduces stiffness in the muscles after the procedure.

Oral Conscious Sedation
Conscious sedation helps you relax and block pain during the procedure. Oral conscious sedation produces a light or moderate effect depending on the patient and the type of procedure. Oral sedation is provided in form of a pill taken before the procedure. Conscious sedation creates a mild lethargy. Oral sedation keeps the level of consciousness for patients’ safety, but relaxes them and blocks the sense of pain. The number of sedatives you take and when you take them will be determined by the dentist before the procedure. With the conscious sedation you will recover and return to your everyday activities very soon.
