Do you feel nervous or afraid of visiting the dentist? Do you feel anxious about complex treatments that involve multiple appointments? At Couture Smiles Dental Group, we offer sedation dentistry so you can receive all of the care you need in just one appointment with no fear or anxiety. Sedation dentistry is a good option for patients who suffer from dental anxiety, gag easily, are mentally or physically disabled, or would like to accomplish a lot of dental work in fewer visits. Drs. Terteryan, Gordon, and Fahid, our caring dentists, offers a number of sedation options so we can find the one that works for you. Our options for sedation dentistry in Woodland Hills, California, include:
- Nitrous oxide: Nitrous oxide is used for inhalation sedation. You will inhale nitrous oxide (sometimes called laughing gas) through a nose mask during your treatment to help you feel relaxed and calm. Nitrous oxide sedation has no after-effects, and you can safely drive yourself to and from your appointment.
- Oral sedation: Oral sedation involves taking a prescribed medication before your visit. This helps you to feel relaxed by the time of your appointment. While oral sedation will not make you unconscious, many patients fall asleep during their treatment when utilizing oral sedation. You will typically have little to no memory of the procedure.
- IV sedation: We offer the services of a board-certified anesthesiologist for full IV sedation, which will help you sleep through your entire procedure.
We will help you determine which form of sedation dentistry is best for your specific needs. If you have been avoiding the dentist because of dental phobia, now is the time to visit us and receive the care you need while staying calm and comfortable.
