Dental phobia is not uncommon, but it can be debilitating for your smile if it keeps you from visiting the dentist.
At Cabrillo Family Dental Care, we understand how you feel, and we're here to help you get the dental treatment you need to have the healthy smile we believe that everyone deserves.
We offer three types of dental sedation in Pacifica for patients who struggle with fear or anxiety when visiting the dentist. We're happy to help you determine which type of sedation would be right for your needs when visiting our dental office.
Nitrous oxide, or laughing gas, is the lowest level of sedation we offer. The gas is delivered through a mask you wear during your procedure, and it works fast to help you relax.
Nitrous oxide is safe for both adults and children, and we can use it during most procedures. Best of all, it doesn't leave you with troublesome side effects.
Oral conscious sedation delivers a deeper level of sedation through medication you take an hour before your treatment. This type of sedation requires you to arrange transportation to and from your appointment.
IV sedation is the deepest level of sedation we offer, and it's almost like sleeping through your dental appointment. Dr. Jen Kin is licensed to provide IV sedation at our Pacifica dental office, and it is ideal for patients with dental phobia or severe anxiety.
