Sedation Dentistry in Encino

Dental treatments like root canals, extractions and oral surgeries will sometimes require sedation in order for you to feel completely comfortable throughout the procedure. Our Encino dentist also understand that for some patients, a dental visit is nothing to be excited about. Regardless of what type of dental procedure you are getting or if you are just a nervous patient, we will strive to make you feel as comfortable as possible by using the best sedation method for you at each and every visit with our dentist.

Sedation dentistry is perfect for patients who:

  • Have fear or anxiety about visiting a dentist or getting dental treatment
  • Have difficulty sitting in one spot for a long time
  • Have a hard time with anesthesia or becoming numb by it
  • Have a limited movement of the mouth

There are two types of sedation used by our Encino dentist. If you are wondering which sedation method is best for you, please schedule a consultation with our dentist in order to discuss the most appropriate option for you.

Oral Conscious Sedation: This type of sedation is offered to patients that have a fear of needles. It is easy administered as if only requires a prescription pill to be taken before your dental appointment so that you arrive relaxed.

Nitrous Oxide Sedation: This is the most commonly used sedation method amongst dentists. Nitrous oxide, which is referred to as laughing gas, allows for fast recovery and eliminates the need for someone to accompany you to your appointment.
