  • “I have been a patient of Dr. Robertson for over 20 years. I'm a sensitive patient when it comes to going to a dentist and Dr. Robertson always remains mindful of that and makes each experience as relaxing as possible. He has the best possible temperament one could ask for in a dentist. He consistently maintains the most professional and extremely friendly staff which combined with his skills makes his practice by far the best choice.”

  • “I just finished a session with Dr. Robertson which involved removing a bridge and filling the tooth that held the bridge, then replacing the bridge. Dr. Robertson was very considerate and caring doing the work. He was most careful while doing the procedure and there was no pain involved. He is especially good in situations such as this one was.”

Sedation Dentistry

Sedation Dentistry in Irvine CA, Irvine Dental

Anyone who has had to go to the dentist for a major procedure knows it can be nerve wracking and for some, even non-invasive treatments like cleanings can cause major anxiety. Some people will refuse to go to the dentist unless they are in severe pain because they suffer from extreme dental anxiety. Yet, with sedation dentistry, these people can get the treatments they need while being relaxed and comfortable. Irvine Dental provides sedation dentistry for anyone who fears going to the dentist whether it is for preventive dentistry or a filling.

Sedation Dentistry

There are two main types of sedation that dentists use to help their patients relax during routine procedures: an oral medication and nitrous oxide. The oral medication is an easy to take pill that will ease any anxiety you feel while still keeping you conscious. It is important for most procedures for you to remain conscious so they can communicate with you throughout the treatment, yet it is likely you won’t remember the treatment once the medication wears off. If you choose this option, you should have someone drive you to and from your appointment since it may take a while before it is safe for you to drive.

Nitrous oxide is a gas sedation also known as laughing gas. A mask will be placed on over your nose and as you breathe you will begin to feel more relaxed and comfortable. Your dentist controls the gas in order to keep you at a relaxed state throughout the procedure. One of the main benefits to nitrous oxide sedation is that it wears off faster than an oral sedation, which means you will be able to drive home or back to work after. 

Benefits of Sedation

While most patients who request sedation dentistry suffer from anxiety, it can also be helpful for many other problems as well. Those that have sensitive gag reflexes, sensitive teeth, or a low pain threshold can also benefit from sedation. Sedation dentistry is also safe for children as well. If your child is afraid of the dentist or has a hard time sitting still through cleanings it can put them, and you, at ease.
