Sedation Dentistry (Oral Surgery Anesthesia)

More than just a sedation dentist, Dr. Salib is a board certified Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeon. Graduating from Indiana University, one of the nation’s top programs in anesthesia training, has given Dr. Salib more qualifications than any general dentist and most of his oral surgeon colleagues. Dr. Salib is able to offer sedation dentistry and IV sedation for both children and adults. IV sedation dentistry has few side effects.

Sedation Dentistry Can Make Your Dental Visit More Comfortable

We know that many people are fearful of dental procedures and experience anxiety before and during their dental visit. Pacific Oral Surgery & Dental Implant Studio offers conscious sedation or sedation dentistry to make your visit more comfortable and relaxing. With conscious sedation, you’ll be able to hear, see and respond to the action taking place around you in the dental office, but you are much less likely to experience anxiety from it. This also reduces your sense of pain.

There are three kinds of conscious sedation used in dentistry (click the links below to learn more):

  • Oral Sedation
  • Inhalation Sedation
  • IV Dentistry Sedation

At Pacific Oral Surgery & Dental Implant Studio we offer sedation dentistry and have a fully trained and certified staff, as required by California dental regulations. We offer multiple kinds of conscious sedation and will work with you to determine which method is the safest choice for you.  Please call our practice if you have additional questions about sedation dentistry.
