Sedation Dentistry – San Marcos, CA

Helping Anxious
or Frightened Patients Relax

Dental anxiety is nothing to be ashamed of. Seventy-five percent of adults in the US admit to experiencing some level of fear when it comes to dental appointments, and in about 5 to 10 percent of cases, that fear is strong enough to be considered a dental phobia. As a caring San Marcos Dentist, Dr. Howard knows how important it is for your family to be able to relax during their regular checkups and dental procedures. Be sure to ask about our options for sedation dentistry in San Marcos, CA when you call to ask for an appointment.

Why Choose Nelson Y. Howard, D.D.S. for Sedation Dentistry?

Oral Conscious Sedation Dentistry

At the Center for Advanced Cosmetic & Implant Dentistry, Dr. Nelson Y. Howard provides oral conscious sedation for patients who need higher levels of relaxation for their procedures. This option allows the utmost comfort and relaxation for people who are extremely anxious, fearful, or scared. Sedation dentistry is also an excellent alternative for individuals who need extensive care and who want to have larger amounts of dental care at one longer appointment.

With oral conscious sedation, most patients remain awake enough to respond to the team. Often patients won't remember their treatments, will be unaware of the time passing by, and you may even doze. Our specially trained team will monitor you continuously throughout the appointment. The effects of oral conscious sedation can impair your ability to drive, so we ask that you bring a companion to take you to your visit and home after it's completed. The BIG advantage—we can accomplish extensive amounts of dentistry at one time, and you'll have little or no memory of the pleasant experience.
