What is sedation dentistry?

Sedation dentistry is a growing field in which dentists undergo training to utilize specific forms of sedative medication. Sedatives are medications that act safely and efficiently on the central nervous system to calm anxiety and fear. On a technical level, the sedative that enters the blood stream has a slowing effect on the nervous system. So while patients treated with sedation are not “put under,” they feel calm and relaxed when they would otherwise be affected by the sounds and sights of the dental office.

There are several reasons people fear the dentist. Perhaps it was a bad experience in childhood when their attitude toward dentistry was just forming. In some instances, the fear of dental care is related more to embarrassment than a bad experience. There’s no way around it, dental care does involve close contact with the dentist and technicians, and for some it can feel emotionally uncomfortable. There are also people who avoid the dentist for the sheer reason that they hate shots of anesthetic. Whatever the reason for anxiety, the better option is to overcome it with sedation and compassionate care rather than to avoid dental visits altogether.

Sedation during your dental visit can make it easy to complete multiple procedures in one day. It can reduce physical tension, which will have a positive effect on your treatment as well as your post-visit comfort. Sedation has also been said to enhance the effects of local anesthetic, maximizing comfort during treatments. Finally, a mild to moderate sedative has the power to ease a strong gag reflex, making everything from cleanings to restorative care simpler.

Our team is trained and experienced in the use of sedative medication in conjunction with local anesthetic. We are pleased to bring you dental care that enables you to have positive experiences.

I wish there were (6) stars, but I'll have to settle with (5). I began going to Sac Natural Dentistry over 2-years ago because I was tired of trying to explain to all my dental practitioners that fluoride is bad. It should be a crime to use fluoride and mercury fillings - how is this still promoted?!! When I went to SND I was immediately impressed with the knowledge base of everyone I met. Not only that, but everyone there is so happy. It's really nice to be around happy people. It actually makes me want to go to the Dentist - seriously. I've never had that desire before - not even close. Then I met Darryl Azouz DDS. He is a genuine, good person. He actually apologies (continuously) when he's working on you if he thinks he might have hurt you - true compassion. But its his depth of knowledge that impressed me the most. He's constantly traveling around the globe to attend training on the latest methods. I told him he should paper the entire waiting room with all his certifications. I'm grateful to have found this Dentist and his crew. I never imagined I'd look forward to going to the Dentist (did I say that out loud??)

Victoria cleaned my teeth today and helped me to learn how to properly brush my teeth. I won’t say how old I am that I had to relearn! She did a great job and is a wonderful hygiene person. Thus office is super friendly and I’ve had many great services from them over the past two years. I love that they use ozone water too. You will love coming to the dentist!

I used to be the poster child for *scared of dentist.* But I had some growing concerns and I knew I wanted to see a holistic / biological dentist. I found Sacramento Natural Dentistry. Dr. Azouz and his entire team took such good care of me; they were empathetic and straightforward. I was at ease the entire time. My only regret was waiting so long to call for my appointment! I’m so happy to now have a plan for addressing some big needs in my dental health with a team that I trust. I am now confident (and no longer sweaty-palmed) thinking about my visits!

Dr. Azouz is amazing. I had multiple dental issues that I wanted taken care of by a SMART Certified dentist. The work he has done and is still doing has been perfect, far beyond my expectations. He’s very knowledgeable, professional and friendly and his entire staff is also wonderful, friendly and efficient!
