Dr. Derek M. Lichter and our team understand that you might feel a bit anxious or nervous about your visit to our office. We are committed to helping you feel calm and relaxed during your time with us, and one of the ways we help you feel more comfortable is by providing sedation dentistry. Sedation dentistry involves using medications and sedative methods to help you feel at ease during your treatment.

Our dentist, Dr. Derek M. Lichter, is currently a member of DOCS, which is the Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation, and he is happy to offer oral conscious sedation for your benefit. This type of sedation is in the form of a pill and is taken about an hour prior to your appointment. It will make you feel a little bit drowsy, but it will help you relax, stay calm, and feel completely comfortable during your dental treatments. Oral conscious sedation is also a dental sedative that will allow you to stay awake throughout your treatment. While you are at our office, you will stay alert and responsive. With this sedative, we ask that you have a ride to and from our practice to ensure your safety.

If you would like to know more about sedation dentistry in Chula Vista, California, and its benefits, we invite you to contact our office today. We are happy to answer any questions you might have!
