Dr. Shellaine Del Campo and the experienced sedation dentist team at Sedation and Implant Dentistry Irvine, raise awareness of IV sedation in Orange County, CA for patients with dental anxiety. The doctors welcome fearful patients to experience calming treatment, such as full mouth dental implants, with sedation dentistry, now without the necessity of a referral.

Dental fear affects millions of Americans and many patients who suffer from dental anxiety or phobia often delay or forgo dental care to avoid the sights, smells, and sounds of the dentist office that cause them stress or fear. Avoiding preventive check-ups can result in minor dental issues, such as cavities. If left untreated, seemingly minor problems can become major problems that require complex treatment or emergency care. More intensive dental treatments can lead to additional anxiety and fear about visiting the dentist for problems that may have been avoided altogether with routine preventive services. Sedation dentistry makes it possible for anxious or fearful patients to receive the dental care they need to maintain their oral health.

Sedation dentistry includes a variety of techniques and services that help ease dental anxiety and provide patients with a calming, pain-free dental experience. Sedation ranges from nitrous oxide, oral sedation and conscious IV sedation. Nitrous oxide, or “laughing gas,” is administered through a mask worn over the nose and puts patients in a calm and euphoric state for the duration of the appointment. Oral sedation is anti-anxiety medication taken before a dental appointment to help dull feelings of anxiety or fear. IV sedation (sleep dentistry) is administered intravenously for a custom and continuous level of deep relaxation, with amnesia effects.

Sedation dentistry benefits patients with a sensitive gag reflex, who have trouble sitting still, have difficulty getting numb and who experiencing severe dental anxiety and phobia about dental procedures. Receiving sedation dentistry can help these patients experience a comfortable and relaxing appointment, whether for routine teeth cleaning or more complex surgery like dental implants. For patients who have all failing or missing teeth because of poor oral health and missed dental appointments, sedation dentistry can help them receive life-changing full mouth dental implant treatment. Full mouth dental implants replace all teeth in one or both arches with a fixed bridge of strong, stable zirconia teeth secured to dental implants.
