St. Augustine Sedation Dentistry

Dental Treatments Without Pain or Fear

If fear and anxiety are stopping you from getting the care you need, you have found the right place. Sedation dentistry offers a safe and anxiety free dental experience. At Palencia Dental, we offer sedation dentistry in St. Augustine. Sedatives allow the patient to stay awake but remain calm during a dental visit. Some are so effective that the patient won’t even remember the details of the visit.

If you want to learn more about sedation options, call (904) 474-5444.

Advantages of Sedation Dentistry

There are several advantages to sedation dentistry and options available for relieving dental anxiety. It is important to understand that driving is not recommended when sedatives are used. It is important to have a family member or friend drive you to and from your visit to ensure your safety.

There are several benefits to sedation dentistry, such as:

  • Alleviating anxiety
  • More work can be done during each visit
  • No needles
  • No pain
  • Few side effects
  • Procedures may take less time

The most commonly used sedatives include nitrous oxide, oral conscious sedation, and IV sedation. Dr. Kinsey will analyze your medical history, including current medications, to determine the best option for sedation dentistry in St. Augustine. Nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, is delivered through the nose throughout the procedure. This method elevates the mood and creates a sense of well-being while reducing pain and anxiety. This method has been safely used for many years.

The NuCalm System

NuCalm is a proprietary clinical system that calms the brain by bringing the brain wave function down to the alpha range, which is the initial stage of sleep. The system creates deep relaxation without narcotics and requires no recuperative time or supervision. Alpha brain waves are associated with relaxation and meditation. The system uses the synergistic benefits of four sensory appliances, including proprietary dietary supplements, FDA cleared Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation (CES), a light blocking eye mask, and proprietary neurocoustic binaural beat software.
