Sedation Dentistry in Sherman Oaks

Dental Treatments without Fear or Anxiety

Fear and anxiety of the dentist may result from a bad experience in the past, an imagined threat, stories others have told you about their own bad experiences, or fear of pain. At Sherman Oaks Dental Care & Orthodontics, we want our patients to relax and get the treatments they need for better dental health. We offer several options for sedation dentistry in Sherman Oaks.

Sedation Options

Anxiety presents in different ways in each patient. Some feel nervous or jittery, while others have more extreme reactions, such as hyperventilating or canceling appointments due to fear. This can lead to poor dental health or problems that grow worse, resulting in tooth decay, gum disease, and tooth loss.

We provide sedation methods that include:

  • Nitrous Oxide (Laughing Gas) – This is one of the safest methods of sedation, used for everything from cleanings to dental procedures. The gas is administered through the nose, inducing feelings of well-being and relaxation. After the procedure is finished, the effects can be reversed with oxygen. You will be able to drive yourself home or return to work after treatment.
  • Oral Sedation (Sleep Dentistry) – Medication is prescribed to be taken about an hour before your appointment. You will remain awake, but drowsy and very relaxed. We monitor your pulse, blood pressure, and oxygen saturation rate during your appointment. This method is often used when more extensive work is needed or the patient has extreme anxiety.

In addition to relieving fear and anxiety, sedation dentistry offers other benefits. Sedation allows more work to be accomplished in one visit. The type of sedation needed depends on the level of anxiety and the work that is needed.

Learn About Your Options

Do not let anxiety interfere with your dental health. We provide sedation dentistry in Sherman Oaks to allow you to get the work needed for a healthy, beautiful, and confident smile. If you want to discuss your fears, anxiety, and sedation options prior to having a dental exam or any work done, we can accommodate you with a free consultation.
