Sedation Dentistry Los Angeles -
Before & After
Sedation dentistry in Los Angeles - has been increasingly popular to those who “fear” going to the dentist. If you have any of these conditions: avoid going to the dentist because of fear, had a traumatizing experience at the dentist in the past, can't sit still for any length of time, or feel uncomfortable around dental equipment by sights, smells, or sounds, then this might be the right path for you.
All that is required for sedation is one pill that is taken prior to the dental treatment. The effects begin with relaxing your muscles and reducing your stress levels while you remain coherent to speak to the dentist for consolations and questions. With your stress reduced and your muscles relaxed, your dentist will be able to proceed working on your teeth and finish in half the time!
For patients that want to truly sleep their way through treatment, Dentalville offers full IV (intravenous) sedation for patients. This type of sedation creates a deep relaxation while getting treatment so a patient does not have to worry about what is going on. Because of the memory reducing benefits of IV sedation, our patients feel the time of treatment going by very quickly. In most cases, a patient feels they close their eyes and wake up moments later with all the necessary work completed. A lot of office offer sedation, but Dentalville is one of the few that offers true sleep dentistry to our patients.
Often referred to as “laughing gas” nitrous oxide is one of the best types of sedation for dentistry. A mask is placed over the nose and is instructed to continue breathing normally. A feeling of nitrous oxide is one of happiness and is one of the best ways to reduce fear of any dental procedure. This is especially helpful for younger children and helps create a sense of calmness that cannot be found in just local anesthetic.To find out more, contact Dentalville or ask the doctor when going in for treatment what would be the best type of sedation for you and your family.
