Sometimes dental treatment requires some form of sedation in order to be safely and comfortably tolerated. There are a number of reasons why our patients may need sedation while undergoing treatment. A patient may have moderate to severe fear, or phobia, suffer from cognitive or general anxiety disorders, or a patient may have a sensitive gag reflex, or any number of medical or age-related conditions that compromise his/her ability to remain still enough to ensure utmost safety during treatment.
Understanding your sleep and sedation dentistry options can help you and Dr. Ferrera work together to determine your best sedation solution. With more than a decade of experience working with special care and special needs patients, as well as holding several area hospital affiliations allowing for intravenous or general anesthesia, Fiori Dental of San Mateo is unique in offering a full spectrum of sedation dentistry (or sleep) options.
