Sedation Dentistry

Are you someone who has avoided going to the dentist due to a fear of dental procedures being performed? Do you shiver at the sound of a dental drill or even at the mention of getting a cleaning by your dentist? You’re not alone, but skipping regular visits to your Rock Rose Dental professional can be detrimental to your oral health. Visit our Roseville, CA dental office, where we provide sedation dentistry for patients that don’t particularly enjoy the dentist.


Dental patients all over the United States can benefit from sedation dentistry. There are different reasons patients may express an interest in oral sedation during their dental visit, such as:

  • The presence of phobias related to dentistry
  • A bad experience with a previous dental professional
  • Sensitivity in the nerves of teeth and the mouth
  • Pain during dental procedures due to a small mouth
  • A resistance to anesthesia
  • Anxiety disorders
  • If you have any issues with receiving dental work, speak with your dentist to see what options we have to keep you as comfortable as possible during your visit to our office.


Once you make it known that you are interested in oral sedation dentistry, we can discuss options for your dental visit to make sure you are free of fear and stress. Some of the options you may be presented with, depending on the procedure, include:

Nitrous Oxide: Nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, relaxes patients while in the dental chair. It wears off quickly after it is removed and you can return home like normal.

Oral Sedatives: Oral sedatives are taken about an hour before your dental appointment to make sure you are calm and relaxed.

IV Sedatives: These sedatives can make you less anxious while still being a bit aware of your surroundings.

General anesthesia: With this type of sedation, patients will be completely asleep and will need to recover and have someone to help them safely return home.

You can contact a Rock Rose Dental professional in Roseville, CA, for more information about how sedation dentistry can help preserve your health.
