We recognize that, for some patients, visiting the dentist can be a stressful and anxiety-driven experience. This feeling may be caused by sensory processing concerns or negative experiences in the past. The comfort of our patients is very important to us, and we treat each patient as an individual. We offer a range of options for increasing patient comfort, including online forms you can complete before the appointment, curbside check-in, comfortable waiting rooms, hypnotherapy, and sedation for our patients who may experience a higher level of nervousness or anxiety.
At Northridge Dental Group, we offer oral sedatives and nitrous oxide sedation for patients who need a little more assistance getting comfortable during their dental treatments. Sedation is not the norm at our office, however. We offer it only upon request.
If you experience anxiety and nervousness during dental treatments, let us know, and we will explain the sedation process, answer all your questions, and help you determine if sedation is right for you. We also offer alternative methods, including hypnotherapy.
