Many patients struggle with the presence of dental anxiety that occurs when they consider the prospect of dental visits, even routine dental checkups. We can help you better understand your sedation dentistry options and which level of sedation is needed to help you feel calm and relaxed.

By providing sedation dentistry, Dr. Anmar Obaidi and our team can provide patients with an appropriate sedative to reduce their dental anxiety and make visits more enjoyable. The purpose of sedation is to make you calm and relaxed while you are in the treatment chair. We may recommend one of the following sedation levels at your next visit:

– Mild sedation: Your stress levels can be brought down with a light sedation that induces relaxation without causing you to lose consciousness.

– Moderate sedation: When you are receiving a procedure that requires you to sit still with your mouth open for a while, we can put you under a light sleep with a moderate sedation to improve your comfort.

– Deep sedation: Extensive procedures may require you to go into a light sleep while the treatment is provided, and then we can wake you up when it’s finished.
