You’re not alone if you experience dental anxiety. Fear of needles, previous traumatic experiences, or discomfort letting go of control can lead patients of all ages to avoid seeking the dental care they need. If you’ve ever avoided the dentist due to your anxiety, you should know about sedation dentistry. Dr. Friedman is your sedation dentist in Scripps Ranch providing oral conscious sedation and computer controlled anesthetic, also known as The Wand.

One thing that almost everyone can relate to is having a fear of some kind. For some, they may have a fear of heights, and for others, just the mere sight of a snake is enough to bring them to tears. Though it may seem insignificant to some, there are those that have a crippling fear that they may feel as though they will never overcome. One fear that many people have in common is the fear of the dentist. It may be slight for some, but to others, it can be enough to cause them to delay getting the much needed dental care they need performed. Though you may feel as though there is nothing you can do, Dr. Greg Friedman is able to put your fears to rest using sedation dentistry at his San Diego, CA dental office.
One of the wonderful things about sedation dentistry at our office is that our team, as well as Dr. Friedman, has received extensive training, ensuring that you are in excellent hands. One of the benefits to sedation dentistry is that you are able to restore the health of your smile while feeling completely relaxed. Dr. Friedman is also able to get more work done, saving you time and money. Also, sedation dentistry is able to help those who have a sensitive gag reflex, suffer from TMJ, and people who find it difficult to keep their mouths open for extensive periods of time.
We use oral conscious sedation at our San Diego, CA dental office. You will take the sedation by crushing the pill and mixing it with a flavored mint. The medication takes between 40 to 50 minutes to take effect, where you will feel extremely relaxed. While you are sedated, Dr. Friedman will perform your dental work, and you will not feel any pain. Be sure you have a trusted love one bring you home after your procedure, as the effects of the sedation will still be in your system.
