Sedation Dentistry

Sedation Dentistry in San Marcos, CA

Patients who suffer from dental anxiety often completely avoid seeing the dentist. Delaying treatment can lead to minor dental issues turning into serious problems needing more extensive treatment.

At Grandon Village Dental Office, Dr. Gerald W. Bailey and Dr. Thi Thi Phan provide sedation dentistry for our patients in San Marcos. We use a combination of anesthesia techniques to help our patients relax during uncomfortable dental appointments and surgeries. We are committed to helping all of our patients feel comfortable and relaxed during their dental procedures. 

Let Us Set Your Mind at Ease

The use of our sedation treatments at Grandon Village Dental will greatly improve your overall dental experience. Whether you’re getting a simple filling or undergoing a more complicated procedure, our sedation specialist provides anesthesia to ease any fears or discomfort. Here are some of the sedation dentistry techniques we provide in our San Marcos dental office.


Nitrous Oxide - Also called “laughing gas,” nitrous oxide is one of the most common forms of dental sedation. The gas is administered through a face mask and is a completely safe way to reduce anxiety and help patients relax during procedures. Nitrous oxide is a very mild sedation, making it a popular choice for patients who have mild dental fears.

Oral Sedation - With oral sedation, a prescription is filled before the dental treatment, and patients will need someone to drive them to and from the dental office. At our practice, we use Halcion for short procedures because it has slight amnesic properties which are useful for patients with dental anxiety. Halcion can be used in conjunction with nitrous oxide, and will generally make patients drowsy during the procedure. 


Using either of these methods or a combination of the two, we are able to provide our patients with the most comfortable dental experience for all types of procedures.
