Sedation Dentistry Beverly Hills, Los Angeles
You may be a candidate for sedation dentistry if you are afraid of the dentist, if you have had past bad experiences, if you are unnerved by the sound of the drill or the smells, if you are unable to get adequately numb, if you have a sensitive gag reflex, if you are afraid of needles or if you simply require a lot of overdue dental work. Our expert in sedation dentistry in Beverly Hills, in heart of Los Angeles, may ask questions about your medical or dental history to determine the best sedative for your needs.
Our Beverly Hills sedation dentistry expert may recommend oral sedation, which is prescribed before your dental appointment. You may need a ride to and from your appointment. Take the medication exactly as it is prescribed, and you will feel calm, relaxed and even a little drowsy. Nitrous oxide, or inhaled sedation, is administered through a mask that is placed over your nose. Within minutes of the gas being turned on, you will feel deeply relaxed or as if you are on the verge of sleep. Some patients may benefit from IV sedation, which can provide an even deeper state of relaxation and may be appropriate for patients with certain health needs, behavioral disorders or severe phobias or anxiety.
