Help Me San Diego; I’m Afraid Of The Dentist!

Categories: Sedation Dentistry

San Diego Sleep Dentistry If you are afraid of your San Diego cosmetic dentist, you are not alone. At Marcos Ortega DDS, we encounter many nervous first-time San Diego dental patients. How do we calm their fears, provide a comfortable dental environment and earn lifelong clients?

1) We carefully explain the findings of the initial dental examination and thoroughly outline any recommended procedures. The consultation also includes a discussion about pain control including oral conscious sedation medications. This allows our San Diego dentistry clients to make informed decisions about their oral health and necessary dental procedures.

2) Dr. Marcos Ortega practices gentle, pain-free dentistry. San Diego cosmetic dentistry treatment will not begin until you are numb. Keep in mind, however, that every dentistry patient reacts to numbing agents and sedation medications differently.

Speak up quickly if you start to feel discomfort. We will pause treatment, administer additional analgesic and wait until it takes effect. At Marcos Ortega DDS, we never rush cosmetic dental or restorative procedures.

We will do our best to make you comfortable, whether you are receiving dental veneers, undergoing crown-lengthening treatment, having your teeth whitened, or replacing your old silver fillings.

3) We provide many in-office amenities at Marcos Ortega DDS which help our dental patients focus on something pleasant during cosmetic dental treatment. Not every San Diego dental patient chooses sedation dentistry. Sometimes chemical-free diversions such as listening to your favorite music provide a diversion while letting you remain clear-headed.

At Marcos Ortega DDS, we understand dental anxiety and will help you overcome it. We are located at 306 Walnut Ave., Suite 25 in San Diego, 92103.  We also provide dentistry for the cities of Bankers Hill  Mission Hills, Mission Valley, and   Hillcrest.
