Sedation Dentistry Options in Oakland, CA

When was the last time you relaxed in a dental office? Dental anxiety and dental phobias are fairly common and can also be controlled through sedation dentistry. Now you can treat your dental issues without the fear. Dr. Dennis Prat offers his patients sedation dentistry in Oakland, CA.

Many people avoid going to the dentist due to their high level of dental anxiety. Even when they experience pain and discomfort, they often resist going to the dentist because of fear due to past traumatic experiences or from what they have seen on TV or in movies. Dr. Prat understands your fear and wants to make receiving proper dental care as relaxing and comfortable as possible.

Dr. Prat offers oral sedation to his patients in the form of a small pill that is swallowed shortly before your dental procedure. There is no need for needles or IVs. Even if you have had issues with getting numb, you should not have a problem with being sedated. You will need to have a companion drive you to and from your appointment, as you will be completely relaxed throughout this time. Many patients gently doze, wake up feeling refreshed, and remember very little about their appointment.
