For some people, the dentist is a living nightmare. They feel worried, anxious, or scared to undergo dental work because they fear that the dental work procedures will be lengthy and very painful. At Dental Solutions, we don’t want you to feel stressed every time you come to see us for a necessary dental treatment. Our solution to this fear is sedation dentistry.
Our Glendale dental office offers unparalleled sedation dentistry treatment services for our patients. We want you to feel comfortable and calm as we provide dental treatment.
What is sedation dentistry?
Sedation dentistry is a dental procedure that uses medicine to reduce fear, anxiety, nerves, and worry. There are a variety of medical drugs that can be used in sedation dentistry including: diazepam, lorazepam, triazolam, hydroxyzine, and zaleplon. During sedation dentistry, you may be conscious or unconscious depending on the type of drugs used.
For many, sedation dentistry practices allow our Glendale dentists to provide patients with a more pleasant experience. If you have questions or concerns about sedation dentistry, feel free to ask your dentist. When scheduling sedation dentistry procedures, we always consult with the patient to ensure that the patient is kept informed and remains in control of the sedation choices.

There are a number of benefits that those who undergo sedation dentistry for nerves and anxiety. For dentists, there is a more cooperative patient. For patients, there is a more relaxed feeling and the likelihood of a pain-free or less painful procedure.
