Sedation Dentistry

Many people feel anxious about the thought of dental treatment At Comfort Dental Care, we understand this, and we also realize that such issues should not deter anyone from receiving the care that they need. That is why we offer sedation dentistry services to help you relax and stay stress-free while we take care of your teeth.

We offer the following types of sedation:

Laughing Gas

Also known as inhaled minimal sedation, the patient breathes laughing gas through a mask placed on the nose. We have the ability to control the amount of sedation during the procedure to offer optimal relaxation for the patient. The sedation effect of the gas wears off as soon as the flow is switched off.

Oral Sedation

Oral sedation can range from minimal to moderate depending on the dose given. Minimal sedation will require you to take a pill an hour before the sedation. This will make you drowsy, but you will still stay awake. The sedated patient will feel groggy and may fall asleep during the procedure.

Local Anesthesia

A local anesthetic is used to alleviate the sensation of pain at the site of treatment. Local anesthetics work by temporarily suppressing the nerves that send pain signals to the brain. They are generally administered by means of an injection given right before the treatment. The effect of the anesthetic wears off sometime after the procedure is over.

Our Happy Patients

"I love this place.....Great staff and Dr. Porwal is wonderful. I just finished my Invisalign trays and she and her great staff made my smile beautiful!"

Ryan A.

"I have had dentures most of my life, Dr. Porwal is the first dentist to go the extra mile to make my new teeth exactly how I wanted them to look, (fabulous)! The receptionist Ashley was always very nice, along with the other front end personnel. I would recommend Comfort Dental to anyone in need of a personal touch to make your smile something you want to do every day. Thank you Julie V. From Oakley Ca."

"Dr. Porwal is good at what she does. I had to see someone else when she was out of town recently and it really brought home how much better she was when I had a recent alternative to compare her work with. Very good with pain management. Also the office uses up to date technology and I prefer the restorations I have had done with her lazer over the drill work of dentists still using that. They offer late appointments so I have no trouble scheduling around my work schedule."
