What is Sedation Dentistry?

Sedation Dentistry is a low impact and safe way to relax at the dentist and get a painless procedure complete. Town Center Dentistry is San Diego's Top dental center.

The words “relaxation” and “dentist” are rarely found in the same sentence.  The mere thought of the dentist’s chair is enough to send some people’s heart-rates up. And the sound of the drill? Forget about it.

But what if we told you that at Town Center Dentistry, we offer Southern Californians the option of a relaxing and calm dental experience?

This might sound too good to be true, but it’s not. At Town Center Dentistry, our dental professionals are qualified to administer medication that provides relief from the common anxieties many people feel when faced with visits to the dentist.

What is Sedation Dentistry?

Sedation dentistry is a common term used to describe the administration of medication to help dental patients cope with the fear and angst associated with going to the dentist. For some, the anxiety is debilitating, and they avoid visiting the dentist altogether. Regardless of the reason for the fears and anxieties people have around going to the dentist, sedation dentistry provides a helpful solution.

How does Sedation Dentistry work?

The primary method used at Town Center Dentistry is IV Sedation. Also known as “Twilight Sedation”, the patient will not necessarily be “asleep”, but in a deep state of relaxation, unbothered by their surroundings. Delivered intravenously (IV), the patient will be conscious, drifting in and out of sleep, but will not remember the procedure at all. After the procedure is done, the patient will feel as if the several hour long procedure went by in a blink of an eye. Throughout IV Sedation a qualified professional will make adjustments to the level of sedation to make sure the patient is constantly carefree and comfortable.

At Town Center Dentistry, we carefully monitor the vital signs of each patient undergoing sedation throughout the duration of the procedure and the sedation process. It is usually necessary for sedation dentistry patients to arrange for a ride home, but Town Center Dentistry has you covered. Enjoy a complimentary ride in our luxurious private limousine to and from your appointment to keep you safe and your mind at ease.
