Many patients avoid visiting the dentist due to a fear of the dentist. Dental anxiety can make it very difficult for patients to commit to visiting the dentist at least twice a year for preventative dental care. At Beach Cities Dental Group in Oxnard, CA family dentist Dr. Georgia Haddad offers sedation dentistry to help patients feel completely relaxed and at ease so they may receive the dental care they need.
The Importance of Preventive Dentistry
The health of your gums and teeth goes beyond protecting your beautiful smile. Keeping your teeth and gums healthy can help maintain your overall systemic health as well.

Sedation dentistry allows Dr. Haddad to perform multiple dental procedures during one sitting. This can reduce the need for multiple visits reducing stress and anxiety.

Dr. Haddad will evaluate your medical history, oral health, and take the time to understand your concerns to determine which form of sedation dentistry is appropriate for you.
Sedation Dentistry Options
For patients who desire dental sedation, Dr. Haddad offers sedation options. While you will remain alerted and responsive during treatment, you will enjoy a pain-free experience with little to no memory of the procedure.
- Oral sedation: Taken in a pill form, oral conscious sedation is taken a few hours before your treatment. This type of sedation will take several hours to wear off and will require you to have an escort to and from your dental appointment.
- Nitrous oxide: Better known as “laughing gas”, nitrous oxide is inhaled as a gas. Nitrous oxide takes effect immediately and wears off just as quickly. You will be able to drive yourself to and from your dental appointment.
