Sedation Dentistry

Many people experience dental anxiety - for some it's mile, for others, it's severe. Dental phobia is a common condition, but it shouldn't prevent you from receiving the care you deserve. Recent research tells us that poor oral health can contribute to bad overall health, increasing the risk for many medical problems, from heart disease to cancer. Dr. Turk understands dental phobia and your need for good oral health. To help you overcome your stresses, he offers conscious sedation.

If you're a candidate for sedation dentistry, Dr. Turk will prescribe a sedative for you to take prior to your treatment. A friend or family member must drive you to and from your appointment. We may use nitrous oxide, or laughing gas, to enhance the effects of conscious sedation. After you enter a state of deep relaxation, Dr. Turk will perform your dental work, potentially reversing years of damage in a single visit. As your conscious sedation wears off, you'll have pleasant memories of your visit with little or no memory of your treatment.

For procedures requiring IV sedation, Dr. Turk brings in a trusted anesthesiologist to and monitors patients throughout treatment.

Call Distinctive Smiles today to schedule your sedation dentistry appointment with Dr. Turk. We provide quality care and exceptional service to residents of Orange and surrounding areas.
