Millions of Americans avoid going to the dental office to maintain or repair their dental health. Most people have anxiety and fear surrounding anything involving the dentist. Here at WinningSmiles Custom Dentistry in Fontana, CA, we offer sedation dentistry because we understand and relate to our patients who have dental phobia. Our goal is for you to have a positive dental experience and enjoy the benefits of a winning smile.

Why Sedation Dentistry at Winning Smiles in Fontana?

For our patients with extreme fear, sedation dentistry is convenient and offers peace of mind. One of the biggest benefits of sedation dentistry is a pain-free visit. Your mouth is one of the most sensitive parts of your body. We know that some people experience even more sensitivity than others. Sedation is a great choice for you and your dental health.

If you would like to feel like your visit was only a few minutes and want to walk out feeling no discomfort, ask us about the option that is best for you.

Sedation vs. Sleep Dentistry

Sedation doesn’t “knock you out”. You may feel sleepy, but you are not asleep or unconscious. The safety of sedation means that you will feel an amnesic state. It means that you will have very little or no memory of your visit and treatment.

The most common method is oral sedation. We are your best dentist in Fontana because we offer oral sedation for your safety and convenience. It creates a comfortable experience. You won’t feel any injections.

Who Should Have Sedation Dentistry?

Sedation is very helpful if you have a very sensitive gag reflex, especially if it is so sensitive that you have trouble taking X-rays. Once you are sedated, you will not have the urge to choke or gag.

If you can’t sit in the chair for long time or have Parkinson’s disease, sedation is an excellent choice to make you relaxed and allow the dental team to finish the needed procedures in shorter time without resistance.

For patients who are looking to save time, sedation will allow us to finish all the dental procedures in one visit.

Many people like to make jokes about being afraid to see the dentist, but dental anxiety is very real—and it isn’t very funny. For some people, their fear of seeing the dentist runs so deep, they avoid going at all costs.

Many times, they end up with a dental issue such as a severe toothache that leaves them no choice. By then, they might need more invasive treatment—such as a root canal—to take care of a problem that could have been easily treated when it was less complex. This perpetuates the cycle of anxiety, keeping many people from skipping future dental appointments as well.
