A number of patients feel anxious or stressful when it comes to visiting a dentist. Modern practices and techniques have allowed patients to become less concerned when stepping into the doctor’s office. In his San Fernando Valley office, sedation dentist Dr. Arash Razi recognizes the sensitivity of patients and develops a personalized experience for them.
Sedation dental options are available and can help maintain your comfort while your teeth are being improved.
Candidates for sedation dentistry include patients with:
- Dental phobia
- Past traumatic experiences
- Highly sensitive teeth
- Fear of needles
- Severe dental problems
Dr. Razi uses the recommended amount of sedation and monitors your vitals during the procedure. Nitrous oxide and oral conscious sedation are two options for sedation. Nitrous oxide is a gas that is administered through a nose hood and results in an increased feeling of euphoria. Oral conscious sedation can be administered in pill form and taken one hour before a scheduled procedure.
Sedation dentistry has been around for decades and is one of the most effective ways to improve patient well-being during treatment. If you wish to determine your candidacy for sedation, please call our office today and schedule an appointment.
