Sleep Dentistry in San Marcos
A good number of people feel anxious when it comes to going to the dentist. Of these, roughly 20%-30% have extreme anxiety and fear. So much so that they avoid going to the dentist at all costs. Our sedation dentist in San Marcos has years of experience treating highly phobic and fearful patients using "sedation dentistry". Commonly referred to as sleep dentistry, patients often doze off during their dental procedure.
What Is Sedation Dentistry?
Sedation dentistry (aka "sleep dentistry") allows the patient to doze off during the dental treatment. It is not uncommon for the patient to fall sleep during the treatment, thus the term "sleep" dentistry. Our San Marcos dentist has the training and experience to offer sedation dentistry to help the fearful and highly anxious patients.
Is Sedation Dentistry Safe?
Sedation dentistry is very safe when the correct protocols are followed. Our San Marcos sedation dentist, Sonny Eslampour, DDS has had the proper training and necessary safety equipment for offering this service safely and effectively.
