If you have claustrophobia, you avoid enclosed spaces. If you have arachnophobia, you stay away from spiders. Fair enough! But if you fear the dentist you may be inclined to avoid checkups. At Weston Spencer DDS in La Jolla, we know this is a bad idea.
The connection between your dental health and overall health is by now well-established. Skipping regular checkups due to fear, or any other reason, puts your general health at risk, too.
Help Is Here
A solution that works is sedation dentistry. We offer two types:
- Nitrous oxide is known popularly as laughing gas. It has been used in dentistry for more than a century. It may or may not make you laugh, but it is safe and effective.
- Oral conscious sedation involves taking a prescribed sedative an hour or so before your appointment. It won’t put you out, but it will make you very groggy. You won’t be aware of any discomfort, and will need to have someone drive you home afterward.
Sedation dentistry from Weston Spencer DDS in La Jolla has allowed countless patients to get the treatment they deserve. People throughout Solano Beach, Del Mar, and Claremont come to our office for complete general dentistry services. Call us to schedule an appointment today!
