Sedation Dentistry

Sedation Dentist in Sacramento

sedation dentistry with a dentist Fair Oaks CA and Carmichael CADr. Boyce at Arden Dental Care has been using sedation dentistry in Sacramento for over ten years. Oral conscious sedation allows Dr. Boyce to get patients that have dental phobias to be very relaxed in the dental chair so they can get back on the road to good dental health. He is licensed through the Dental Board of California and has been certified through the DOCS program.

What is Sedation Dentistry?

Dr. Boyce uses medications in the Valium family to get patients sedated for their treatment. Once the pills have taken affect, you are safely monitored throughout the dental procedure, checking your pulse, blood pressure, and oxygen levels. We don’t begin treatment until you tell us you are sedated enough to begin.

Who is a candidate for conscious sedation?

Sedation dentistry is a great option for those that have had bad experiences at the dentist and are now fearful to return. Often these patients have neglected their teeth for several years and have a need for lots of treatment done in one appointment! It is also a good procedure for patients that have a sensitive gag reflex, and those that want to get a lot of dentistry accomplished at once. We do a comprehensive health history prior to treatment, because not everyone is a candidate for conscious sedation due to health history conflicts with the certain medications they are taking.

Benefits of Sedation Dentistry

The benefits of sedation dentistry for our Sacramento, Carmichael, and Fair Oaks patients include: getting patients through their dental objectives, in a safe environment, and helping patients get their dental health back in just a few appointments.

The “Bonus” of Sedation Dentistry
