Sedation Dentistry by a Skilled Beverly Hills Dentist

Sedation Dentistry by a Skilled Beverly Hills Dentist

Although people sometimes refer to sedation dentistry as sleep dentistry, it does not actually put you to sleep. A better description is conscious sedation. Instead, your skilled Beverly Hills cosmetic dentist uses sedatives to create a relaxing, anxiety-free dental experience.

An important option since the Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation (DOCS) estimates that approximately 30 percent of people fear the dentist. The result is that too many people don’t receive the necessary dental care they need to help maintain good oral hygiene.

Overview of Sedation Dentistry

While there are several methods for administering sedation dentistry—intravenous, gas, or orally—your Century City cosmetic dentist uses oral sedation. A small pill taken an hour before treatment allows you to feel relaxed and comfortable during your dental procedure.

This no-needle approach makes the experience even more appealing to those who find going to the dentist scary. In fact, oral sedation is the most common sedation dentistry used in America today. Many times patients don’t even remember the experience.

Even though your Beverly Hills cosmetic dentist uses sedation dentistry, you’ll still need a local anesthetic at the treatment site. And be sure to have someone accompany you to your dental appointment to ensure you arrive home safely.

History of Sedation Dentistry

Although sedation dentistry has increased in popularity in recent years, it is a
practice that dates back to the 1840s. At that time, Dr. William Morton needed something to make tooth removal tolerable. He considered nitrous oxide. However, after several tests he chose ether.

Today dentists use a variety of methods for sedation dentistry. But for almost a century, the anesthetic chosen by most doctors and dentists was ether.

Benefits of Sedation Dentistry

Whether or not you have a fear of going to the dentist (sometimes referred to as dentophobia), sedation dentistry offers benefits.

• Time. Because the time seems to fly by, procedures that take hours pass by quickly for patients.
• Comfort. Going to the dentist becomes less frightening when comfortably sedated.
• Sensitivity. Sedation dentistry is a great alternative to regular dental care when patients have sensitive teeth or bad gag reflexes.
• Children. Those who aren’t able to stay seated in the dental chair for long periods may find sedation dentistry helpful.

Safety of Sedation Dentistry

As with any anesthetic, there is risk. However, to minimize that risk speak with your Century City cosmetic dentist in advance to:

• Thoroughly review your medical history
• Determine that you are a good candidate for sedation dentistry
• Learn about your dental procedures and the dose of sedative used
• Learn about your dentist’s background and training
• Get detailed information about the risks

Sedation dentistry is a safe and beneficial process. Your skilled Beverly Hills cosmetic dentist will monitor your vitals throughout the procedure to ensure your well-being.

Sedation Dentistry In Los Angeles

March 22nd, 2013

Sedation Dentistry In Los Angeles Many Los Angeles cosmetic dentistry patients have discovered the benefits of anxiety-free dentistry (sometimes called sedation dentistry). There are three main types of sedation options available in the Beverly Hills area.

Inhalation

Nitrous Oxide, sometimes called ‘laughing gas‘ has been used in Los Angeles cosmetic dental offices for over a century, because, in many ways, it is an ideal sedative. It begins to work quickly, but then wears off as soon as the dental patient stops inhaling it. Breathing nitrous oxide can produce warm tingling sensations and a feeling of euphoria.

Oral Conscious Sedation

Oral sedatives take longer to work than nitrous, but produce a calmer state for many nervous dental patients. Triazolam and diazepam are common oral sedatives used in dentistry. These sedative medications are routinely prescribed by Los Angeles physicians for anxiety, insomnia, and muscle spasms.

Oral sedation is a good sedation choice for anxious patients who require a lengthy dental procedure, such as implant dentistry. After the dental visit, it takes a while for the medication to wear off. A conscious sedation patient should not plan to drive home after undergoing oral sedation.

IV Sedation

Like nitrous, intra-venous sedation starts working immediately as the sedative enters the bloodstream. IV sedation usually produces the deepest state of relaxation. IV patients can dream away the entire procedure and wake up calm and relaxed.
