Why Sedation Dentistry

Dentistry has come a long way over the years, but none of the advancements can help a person who doesn’t make an appointment.   Millions of people aren’t getting the dental care they need because they can’t or won’t go to the dentist.  Now, there’s a breakthrough that’s completely changing dentistry, and making it possible for everyone to get the treatment they need:  it’s called sedation dentistry.

People have many reasons for avoiding the dentist.  Some feel uncomfortable and even afraid, just thinking about going to the dentist’s office. The sights, sounds and smells of dentistry can be downright scary to many perfectly normal people.  Often, it’s memories of past dental experiences, sometimes from childhood, that keep people away.  There’s no reason to be embarrassed of your fear of the dentist, because there are millions of people just like you.

Fear, discomfort, and anxiety aren’t the only reasons people have for avoiding the dentist.  Some have complex dental problems, and just don’t have time for all the appointments.  Others have trouble getting numb or even sitting still for long periods of time.

For all these problems – sedation dentistry is the answer.  Once you are comfortably sedated, your fear and anxiety will just melt away.  Issues with discomfort, getting numb, and sitting still are no longer problems once you’re enjoying the peace of a relaxed dental appointment with sedation dentistry.  Better yet, with sedation dentistry, your dentist will probably be able get more treatment finished in each visit.  That means fewer appointments!

Modern dentistry gives dentists a number of sedation options, including nitrous oxide, oral sedation, and even IV sedation.  While the techniques are different, the goal is the same:  your dentist will give you just enough medication to keep you comfortable and relaxed through the whole appointment.  The procedures are highly effective and extremely safe, and the whole team of professionals at our practice has been trained to ensure patient safety and comfort.

Ask about what sedation options are available for your dental treatment.  Once you try sedation dentistry, you may never want to have an appointment any other way!

I have horrible teeth and have been around the block and back with dentists, trying many offices around Los Angeles and San Diego. Dentists come a dime a dozen but I try to avoid doing the trial and error thing with my teeth!

Dr. Jessy was highly recommended by a friend of mine so I went to see him for a consultation. First impressions are everything for me - beginning with how my first phone call is handled, stepping into the office for the first time, the front office staff, etc. Everyone I encountered was professional and courteous. When I had my consult with Dr. Jessy he was personable and professional but most importantly, I could tell he was experienced and knowledgeable.

Over the past two weeks I had 11 teeth worked on and I was really surprised by how gentle the process was. I'm accustomed to experiencing significant pain at the dentist and this was not the case at all. I definitely have confidence in Dr. Jessy and his office and highly recommend them!

approach. I feel very confident in their ability, and do not hesitate to recommend Dr. Sidhu. Thank you to Marlene too for the great cleanings!
