Total Health Dental Care offers sedation dentistry to East Bay area patients who fear the dentist or dental treatment, to help them relax throughout a dental visit. Total Health Dental Care has offices in Berkeley, Old Oakland, Montclair, and Piedmont, California
Sedation dentistry provides a more relaxing experience for patients who have anxiety about dental visits or treatments. Sedation dentistry can also help with children and people with special needs who may not be able to express their concerns or fully understand what treatment is necessary.
The type of sedation we offer is dispensed orally and does not involve any needles. Instead, you will simply take a prescribed dose of medication about 60-minutes before your appointment. When you arrive at our office you will feel groggy and sleepy. We will help you to a dental suite where you will receive a topical anesthetic to reduce any physical discomfort. You will remain relaxed throughout your procedure.
Since the sedative effect typically lasts for several hours after administration, you should arrange to have a responsible adult drive you home from our office.
Sedation requires that you be driven to your appointment and then back home. Sedation is a wonderful tool that helps everyone who has a fear of the dentist receive the best care possible. If you have concerns or are fearful, just discuss this with us at your evaluation. We are happy to provide you with more information about sedation. Our goal is always that each patient receives the best care possible.
Since Total Health Dental Care uses the most advanced sedation options and has been specially trained to administer sedation, it is a very safe. Prior to the procedure, the dentist will go over the patient’s medical history to ensure that any special measures are taken.
Our offices accept most Dental PPO plans. Plans obtained through Covered CA or any HMO plans are not accepted at any of our offices.
