Sleep Dentistry is a great way to have your dental procedures performed if you have any of the following: dental anxiety, extreme dental fear, or would like to be more comfortable for long dental procedures. Only a few general dentists have this license with the proper training in Ventura County. Although most patients only need a couple pills to relax them before their appointment, some need what is called IM or IV sedation. This is usually done for our patients that need implants, oral surgery, or extreme makeovers but can also be used for other long procedures like root canals. Sleep Sedation is very safe and a great way to have your dentistry performed. It is also great for children (under 12) who are very anxious at the dental office and need special care. I am currently the only general dentist in Camarillo who has a Conscious Sedation permit through the State of California. Please give us a call if you have any questions about sleep sedation and if it is right for you.
