Oral Conscious Sedation San Francisco
San Francisco sedation dentist Dr. Chris Rodriguez uses oral sedation dentistry, or “conscious sedation,” to relax you during your dental appointment. This mild sedative is delivered in a pill, which you take shortly before your dental treatment at Rodriguez Dentistry. Under oral sedation, you may actually remain conscious, awake, and responsive, though in an extremely relaxed and comfortable state. Our conscious sedation dental patients feel no anxiety and usually remember little to nothing of their time in the dental chair. San Francisco sedation dentist Dr. Chris Rodriguez uses conscious sedation medication that is clinically tested, safe, and FDA-approved to eliminate your dental anxiety.

Patients are brought to a safe level of anesthesia where they are very relaxed, and closely monitored, with little to no recollection of the procedure. Dr. Rodriguez is ACLS certified (Advanced Cardiac Life Support) from the American Hear Association, and is current in the latest techniques.
