Sedation Dentistry near Carlsbad, CA, from Our Experienced Dentists

Compassionate Dental Care You Can Count On

Our caring dentists at McElroy Smiles By Design have several solutions to ease people who avoid the dentist at all costs. Relax with our compassionate sedation dentistry near Carlsbad, CA.

Relax with Oral Conscious Sedation

About an hour before your appointment, you can take a pill to help you feel relaxed during the entire procedure. There are a number of oral agents that have been developed especially for these purposes and have been used for dental procedures for decades. This oral conscious sedation relieves you from your dental anxiety and lets you fully relax during your dental treatment.

Our Special Wand Delivers Anesthesia Painlessly

Because of our commitment to state-of-the-art dental technology, we have replaced the traditional dental syringe with a computer-controlled anesthetic delivery system that we call the “Wand.” Most patients don’t even realize they have received an injection with the Wand! It delivers numbing medication more accurately, which means that patients no longer experience prolonged numbness in surrounding areas.
