Lompoc Sedation Dentist for Kids & Adults

Ensuring comfort and safety

Is your sweet little one nervous or unable to sit for treatment?

At Sweet Tooth, we understand that dental visits can be a source of anxiety for both children and adults. We offer safe Santa Maria and Lompoc sedation dentistry, work with those who have special needs, and tailor your child’s dental care to fit their needs.

Our goal is to make your dental experience as comfortable as possible.

Why Sedation?

Ease Anxiety

Sedation can help alleviate dental anxiety, making the dental experience more comfortable for patients of all ages, especially those particularly anxious or fearful.

Improve Cooperation

Sedation can enhance cooperation, particularly in children or individuals with special needs who may have difficulty sitting still for longer procedures.

Reduce Discomfort

Sedation can help reduce the physical discomfort of more complex dental procedures, ensuring a pain-free experience.

Enable Efficiency

Sedation allows the dentist to perform procedures more efficiently as patients are relaxed and still, potentially reducing the time required for complex treatments.

Sedation Options for Every Patient

Nitrous Oxide Sedation

Also known as “laughing gas,” nitrous oxide is a safe and effective in-house sedation option that helps ease anxiety, making your dental visit more relaxed and pleasant.

Hospital Sedation

For more extensive procedures or patients with severe anxiety, we offer sedation at a surgical center. This ensures your utmost comfort and safety throughout the process.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is nitrous oxide?

This safe and effective sedative agent is mixed with oxygen and inhaled through a small mask that fits over the nose. It’s used to help patients relax during dental procedures.

Nitrous oxide is not intended to put you to sleep. Patients will continue to hear and respond to any requests or directions. The effects of nitrous oxide wear off soon after the mask is removed, allowing patients to resume normal activities quickly.

How should I prepare my child for an appointment where they will be under sedation?

We’ll provide specific instructions on preparing for your child’s appointment, which may include restrictions on eating or drinking before the procedure.

Do you offer sedation for adults too?

Yes, we offer sedation options for adults as well. We aim to ensure all our patients have a comfortable, stress-free experience.

What is your experience in treating children with special needs?
Dr. Nik is expertly trained to treat children with special needs. If you’re not comfortable with sedation for your child, no problem. We understand that these patients may require a unique approach and know how to provide an excellent experience, sedation or not.
