Sedation Dentistry

At San Mateo Dental Care, the comfort and wellbeing of our patients is a top priority for Dr. Belen and our team. We understand that some patients may experience anxiety or discomfort during dental procedures, which is why we offer various pain management techniques to ensure a painless experience. Our experienced dental professionals may use analgesics such as lidocaine or xylocaine, either applied topically or via injection, to minimize pain and discomfort during treatment. This method has been proven safe and effective, allowing patients to remain fully conscious and relaxed throughout the process. At San Mateo Dental Care, we strive to provide a stress-free and comfortable environment for all our patients.

Sedation Dentistry: Ensuring a Comfortable Procedure

We understand that certain dental procedures or even the thought of visiting a dentist can be stressful for some patients. That’s why Dr. Belen and our team offer various forms of sedation to ensure your comfort during treatment. Whether you have dental anxiety, a low pain tolerance, or a complex procedure, we can provide conscious or oral sedation to help you relax.

Our sedation dentistry services have helped many of our patients deal with long-standing dental problems and start visiting the dentist on a regular basis. We want to ensure that you maintain your teeth and overall health, which is why we prioritize your comfort and relaxation during treatment. Contact us today to learn more about our sedation dentistry options.

Oral sedation is…

  • Less invasive – there is no need for intravenous injections or artificial breathing
  • Less expensive than other forms of sedation
  • Less debilitating – the recovery from oral sedation is usually much quicker than from deep sedation.

If You Need a Quick Recovery Period

For patients who need to “go solo” for the ride home, San Mateo Dental Care and Dr. Belen offer nitrous oxide sedation dentistry, also known as “laughing gas.” Nitrous oxide is a safe and effective way to calm your fears and anxieties during the procedure, and it quickly dissipates from your body afterward. Following a short recovery period at our office, you can safely drive yourself to your next destination
