Sedation Dentistry, also known as sleep dentistry, is for patients who may experience dental anxieties ranging from mild to severe. Such dental fears may prevent patients from visiting the dentist for routine cleanings or more extensive dental procedures, such as fillings, crowns, bridges, dental impacts, or extractions. Some patients prefer sedation dentistry to relax in a sometimes uncomfortable environment. For both of the listed types of patients, Non-Special Needs Sedation Dentistry helps to alleviate any dental fears during dental procedures.
Dr. Garrett Toy, DDS of Ventura County also offers Special Needs Sedation Dentistry for developmentally disabled patients. For patients with Autism, Cerebral Palsy, or other disabilities, Dr. Toy and his anesthesiologist, Dr. Chen, develop a treatment plan and provide dentistry services under general anesthesia for developmentally disabled patients.
