Sedation Dentistry | A Calm Dental Visit
Between 10% to 15% of Americans bypass dental appointments due to fear or anxiety. Phobias and anxiety are the two main reasons. If you’re one of the millions of Americans who have difficulty making and attending appointments, we understand. It’s our job to create a more comfortable and soothing office, and we’ve done everything we can in that regard. However, we know that some of our Los Angeles patients need more than a friendly staff and inviting atmosphere to keep them calm. Which is why we offer sedation dentistry.
Sedation dentistry lets patients who suffer from severe anxiety receive the dental care they need. The procedure relaxes patients, allowing them to be calm and comfortable during dental treatment.
How Does it Work?
After we give you the sedative medication, your central nervous system will slow down. You’ll still be aware of your surroundings but you will be less responsive to external stimuli. This will help keep you relaxed as the dentist and staff go about different dental treatments.
As far as ingesting the sedative, we offer options, including pills, liquid, or nitrous oxide, which can be inhaled. Once you’re completely calm from the sedative, the dentist will begin.
Everyone in Los Angeles deserves great dental care. Call today to ensure you receive the very best dental care, regardless of anxiety or phobias. 310-477-2488
