Dental Phobia, Dental Sedation, and “High Fear” Patients

It is estimated that 10-15% of the population is “dental phobic,” and are so fearful of receiving dental treatment that they avoid dental care at all costs. I’ve had some patients say their fear is “paralyzing” and report taking weeks to gain the courage to visit or even make their appointment. Some need friends to escort them in, and even are tearful in the chair on their first visit. Often the fear is not rational with no previous bad experience reported. Others have had traumatic experiences that they cannot ever forget. Combining the newest dental technology with sedation dentistry we can truly offer gentle dentistry for all patients–regardless of their past experiences!

Types Of Sedation Dentistry  |  San Mateo

The Fiori Dental Team understands that many patients are hesitant about dental visits due to anxiety or fears. Different levels of anesthesia and sedation allows Dr. Ferrera to treat you in a manner that you find comfortable. Dr. Ferrera will assess your treatment options and recommend a level of sedation that will allow you to relax during your procedure. An in-depth consultation with San Mateo Dentist Dr. Ferrera prior to administering anesthesia helps to optimize the long-term outcome for your procedure while assuming a minimal risk for complications.

Nitrous Oxide San Mateo

Nitrous Oxide
San Mateo

Nitrous oxide therapy or “laughing gas” is a mild sedative that is commonly used in dentistry. It is a colorless and odorless gas that is administered through a small mask over your nose. This allows you to achieve a level of relaxation as well as reduce pain during the procedure. Nitrous oxide is not addictive and exits the body within a few minutes.

Oral Sedation
San Mateo

San Mateo Dentist Dr. Ferrera offers oral sedation for patients who prefer a more moderate level of sedation. Some patients are given oral medications that are administered directly to the affected area while dental work is performed. Others may be put in a deeper state of relaxation, but will still be able to respond to light stimulation. Patients may feel drowsy and fall asleep during the procedure.
General Anesthesia San Mateo

General Anesthesia
San Mateo

General Anesthesia is a controlled state of unconsciousness where a patient cannot feel, see, or hear anything during the procedure. The medication can be administered through various routes and is an extension of deep sedation, helping limit movement and discomfort during dental treatment. A highly trained and specialized anesthesiologist is required to provide this type of anesthesia.
