Sedation Dentistry

If you delay dental visits, stress the day of your appointments, or have a sensitive gag reflex, you might be an ideal candidate for sedation dentistry. Sedation is also helpful if your mouth does not become numb with a local anesthetic, or if laughing gas is ineffective on you. If you need several dental procedures completed in a short amount of time, sedation dentistry should also be considered. Dr. Marin often combines oral sedation with nitrous oxide (laughing gas) to help patients remain fully relaxed throughout their visit.
