If anxiety-free dentistry sounds appealing, you certainly are not alone. In fact, it has been estimated that the number of Americans battling with dental anxiety is in the tens of millions! Sedation dentist in Beverly Hills Dr. Arthur Glosman and the team here at Arthur Glosman DDS, Cosmetic & Restorative Dentistry firmly believe that dental appointments can and should be enjoyable. That’s right; we strive to ensure that each of our patients has a positive, enjoyable dental visit with us!
For the many patients we see who experience dental worry due to a previous bad experience, difficulty getting numb, or whatever reason, providing this relaxing experience in dentistry may require the use of sedation. Depending on the procedure that is necessary, and also depending on each individual’s level of anxiety, your sedation dentist in Beverly Hills, Dr. Glosman can offer you one of the following options in sedation, or possibly some combination thereof:
- Nitrous Oxide Sedation. Calming, soothing, and fast-acting, this is perhaps one of the most popular options for relaxation during a dental procedure. Nitrous oxide, sometimes called “laughing gas,” is an inhalant whose effects are noticeable, though not nearly as profound as sedation achieved through oral and IV medications. One of the many benefits of choosing nitrous oxide is that the effects begin to wear off as soon as you stop inhaling it, so normal activities can usually be resumed immediately.
- Oral Conscious Sedation. Oral conscious sedation involves ingesting a pill prior to your dental visit which removes your anxiety. The effects of oral conscious sedation are pronounced, patients can have their dental procedures completed in a heightened state of relaxation, and return home to sleep it off, eventually to wake up feeling refreshed, with their dental work done!
- IV Sedation. Probably the most profound option in sedation, the medications delivered via intravenous sedation result in many patients having no memory of their procedure whatsoever. Sedation dentist in Beverly Hills Arthur Glosman has undergone extensive training in this type of advanced sedation to ensure the best results for his valued patients.
