Dr. Bauer welcomes you to Bauer Dental Center in Arroyo Grande California
You are not alone. Many of our patients suffer from dental anxiety or fear. If you feel this way about visiting the dentist, you can benefit from sedation dentistry. More than a way to block sensations of pain, sedation dentistry has helped countless patients feel relaxed, calm, and safe at their dental appointments. We understand that many of our patients suffer from dental anxiety, and we strive to accommodate your unique needs through custom sedation options. If you have any level of anxiety or fear, we encourage you to contact our office. Our sedation options are designed for patients of all kinds, and we’re here to help you feel comfortable and relaxed in our Arroyo Grande, CA office.
Local anesthetic numbs a portion of the mouth around the treatment site. We use local anesthetic with most procedures, and in conjunction with other forms of sedation to ensure a comfortable experience.
Oral sedation is a pill taken an hour prior to your appointment that helps you feel calm. If you are anxious, we can prescribe oral sedation so you can feel relaxed and comfortable at your appointment.
IV sedation provides the highest level of conscious relaxation and pain control. Our on-staff anesthesiologist is trained and licensed to certify IV sedation and is skilled in providing the most personalized levels to ensure your comfort.
Sedation dentistry is mainly for patients with dental anxiety, but did you know that it can help with other concerns as well? If you have a sensitive gag reflex or sensitive teeth, sedation provides a level of relaxation that can overpower those feelings. Sedation dentistry can also help if you or your child struggle to sit still for long periods of time. Similarly, sedation aids Dr. Viorela Bauer and our team by helping you feel calm and relaxed so we can complete multiple treatments in a single appointment. Even if you don’t feel anxious or fearful of the dentist, our sedation dentistry options can improve your experiences with us.
