Not everyone feels comfortable visiting their dentist either because of their fear of the dental instruments and the discomfort they may experience during dental procedures. Some people have a sensitive gag reflex as well.
At DTLA Smile, we offer dental sedation to quell the anxiety and dental phobia of our patients.
Sedation dentistry involves the use of medication and other methods to offer a comfortable, anxiety-free dental experience to patients. There are mainly three levels of sedation available - minimal, moderate, and deep sedation, and it is chosen depending on the patient's type of treatment.
Sedation dentistry can benefit you if you experience the following:
At DTLA Smiles, we provide the following types of sedation dentistry as per the requirements:
Here, sedation is administered in the form of an oral pill and is used when minor sedation is needed. With oral sedation, patients will remain awake and conscious but achieve a relaxed state of mind, decreasing their discomfort.
Nitrous Oxide Sedation
Nitrous oxide or laughing gas is administered to patients through a breathing mask placed over the patient's nose to evoke a feeling of relaxation and sedation.
Intravenous (IV) Sedation
The dentist administers intravenous sedation by injecting it directly into the patient's bloodstream. It is used for comprehensive or lengthy dental procedures and is done under expert supervision.
General anesthesia is administered during lengthy, complicated dental procedures and is usually used to put patients into deep sleep. General anesthesia is administered either through an injection or direct inhalation, and the patient stays asleep during the entire dental procedure.
