Anxious Patients

Anxious Patients

If you are one of the thousands who suffer from dental anxiety, you are not alone! 

Your anxiety may stem from: bad dental experiences, problems getting numb, fear of shots or drills, fear of pain, advanced dental problems, concerns of sterilization standards, or any other apprehensions. 

Has it been 5, 10, or 20 years since your last dental visit?

No matter how paralyzing and hopeless it may seem or how long it has been, we can help you. At Sunnyvale Dental Care Office, we have successfully treated many patients with dental anxiety and helped them conquer their dental phobias.

When you come in for a consultation, you will find that Sunnyvale sedation dentist Dr. Gupta and our entire team are very warm and understanding. We will take the time to discuss your specific fears or concerns with you to make sure that they are all addressed. Together with you we will come up with the best plan tailored for your specific needs, concerns or requests. Before you leave you will have a good understanding of what sedation dentistry has to offer and if it is a good option for you.

How We Can Help Reduce Your Dental Anxiety:

Our Exceptional Team

Dr. Gupta chose his staff to make sure that they are compassionate, patient and caring so it is in their nature to help patients. They must be gentle so they can perform painless dentistry. They have to be competent, experienced, and knowledgeable because patients should have the comfort of knowing that things will be done right. Dr. Gupta also chose staff members who are not only professional but friendly and personable. Our patients are our family. When you visit our office, you will see that all of our team members have all of these wonderful qualities and more.

State-of-the-Art Technology & Techniques

We are among the very few dental practices to have the very best technology available in dentistry today ranging from digital x-rays, numerous computerized equipment, to sterilization systems. We also keep up with the latest techniques and materials to help maximize your comfort.

No-Rush, Low Stress Atmosphere

You will get full personal attention and pampering. We allocate sufficient time for each of our patients so there will be no hectic rushing through your procedure to get to the next patient.

Beautiful Soothing Facility with Amenities to Help You Relax

You will have a personal TV monitor, and sound system so you can watch one of the hundreds of Cable channels, watch a movie from our DVD collection, or listen to the music from our CDs. If you prefer to bring your own DVD movies, music CDs, or MP3, we can also play it for you.


At Sunnyvale Dental Care Clinic, we can give you a pill to take to reduce your anxiety. It is a very safe and effective way to help make your appointment stress-free. It can be used for any dental appointment, even cleanings.


Q: What is anxiolysis?

A: You are given a pill to help minimally sedate you during dental treatments. You breathe, swallow, and are in control, however, your fears and anxieties are significantly reduced. You feel a strong sense of relaxation, calm, and well-being.

Q: Who can benefit from sedation?

A: If you have such an intense fear or anxiety associated with dental visits that you cannot bring yourself to see the dentist to seek necessary care; if you can go to see the dentist, but each visit is very stressful for you and counseling or reasoning does not help; if your teeth are hard to get numb; or if you would like to get a large amount of dental work done in as few appointments as possible; anxiolysis can help you.

Q: Is it safe?

A: We use a small amount of very safe medication, which has been used by more than a million people a day as anti-anxiety or sleeping pills. As with any medication or medical procedures, there are risks for patients with certain medical procedures. We will help you determine whether or not you are a good candidate.

Q: For what types of appointments can I have anxiolysis?

A: The type of anxiolysis we provide can be used for any dental appointment such as fillings, crowns, root canal treatments, cosmetic work, whitening, or even cleanings.

Q: My phobia is so severe, will anxiolysis work for me?

A: For paralyzing phobias, anxiolysis is very helpful but you also need to be in gentle hands. A soothing environment coupled with a team committed to providing TLC are crucial. We have successfully helped even patients with severe debilitating fears and anxieties.
