Many people experience intense fear and anxiety when thinking about visiting the dentist. Sedation dentistry with Dr. Bill Dorfman DDS can help alleviate these fears and enable those who normally avoid the dentist to get the dental care they so desperately need.
Perhaps you may have an unpleasant memory from your childhood of an unprofessional dental practitioner, or you may be somewhat embarrassed that you haven’t been keeping up with your regular check ups. Experienced and compassionate sedation dentists like Dr. Bill Dorfman understand your concerns and can make your trip to the dentist office completely relaxing and fear-free with the use of sedation dentistry options like IV sedation and conscious sedation.
Many dentists administer dental sedation, but only 1% receive extensive sedation training. All of the dentists at Century City Aesthetic Dentistry have undergone this training and are highly qualified to provide safe sedation dentistry.
Dr. Dorfman and his team are passionate about giving you a dental experience that you enjoy. Dental sedation can comfort you and put your mind at ease regarding dental appointments and procedures.
Laughing gas is another convenient form of conscious sedation. When patients choose laughing gas they won’t have to remember to take a pill before their appointment.
With sedation dentistry, a breathing mask will be placed over your nose. The gas is mixed with oxygen. As you breathe laughing gas in and out, you will slowly relax.
laughing gas will allow you to be anxiety-free during your procedure. Once your dentist removes your laughing gas mask, the effects will quickly wear off so you are able to drive home.
Conscious sedation involves a medication that is taken 1 hour before your visit. This dental sedation medication will quiet your mind and reduce your stress before and during your procedure.
Patients feel confident when they choose oral conscious sedation. They usually drift in and out of sleep and are able to wake up in order to respond to their doctor’s questions and commands. At the same time, they feel completely worry-free.
Our conscious sedation medication has almost no side effects. It is also unlikely that the medication we use will interact poorly with any other medications you are currently taking. You will need to have a driver to bring you to and from your appointment.
For patients who want to be completely asleep during their dental procedures we also offer IV sedation administered by a board certified Anesthesiologist. Here you will be sleeping during the entire procedure and wake feeling rested and relaxed.
With the advanced technology at Century City, you won’t have any concerns about dental sedation. During your sedated procedure, we will carefully watch your heart rate, blood pressure, and oxygen levels. Thanks to our computer technology, we will instantly know if your body needs more or less dental sedation.
Thousands of patients have used dental sedation to improve their dental visits. If you’re interested in the comfort that sedation dentistry can provide, call us today at Century City Aesthetic Dentistry.
