What sedation dentistry options are available at Chacon Dental Studio?

It is not uncommon for the team at Chacon Dental Studio of Dublin, California, to hear from a patient that they have dental anxiety. Because many patients experience this condition, a dentist should be equipped to help a patient handle their next appointment with ease. To do this, Dr. Robert A. Chacon, Jr., and his team may recommend sedation dentistry. Sedation dentistry uses sedatives to help patients feel more relaxed for their upcoming appointment to get necessary dental work done. Patients are welcome to talk to our dental team about their needs for assistance in choosing the most appropriate sedative method for their anxiety level.

What types of sedation are available at Chacon Dental Studio?

Patients considering treatments with sedation can learn about the two options used at our facility, including adult oral conscious sedation and IV sedation.

  • Oral conscious sedation : Adult oral conscious sedation is one of the methods of sedation available at our practice for patients to consider. This type of sedation is taken by mouth in pill form, and it works to relax patients throughout their treatment. It does not work by putting patients to sleep, but it does help them relax and leave with little memory of the experience.
  • IV sedation : IV sedation is another form of sedation used for dental treatments. This type of sedation is administered intravenously, and it works quickly to help patients feel relaxed and comfortable. IV sedation puts patients into a semi-conscious state, so they may not remember much about their treatment afterward.

Both oral conscious sedation and IV sedation are effective methods for helping patients feel relaxed during their dental care. In addition, our team will work with each patient to determine which type of sedation may be the best option for their needs.
