Afraid Of The Dentist? Sedation Dentistry Can Help

Afraid of the Dentist? Your Sherman Oaks Sedation Dentist Can Help If you live near Sherman Oaks and experience severe anxiety when undergoing (or even thinking about!) dental treatment, oral sedation is for you.

Conscious sedation dentistry is available in Sherman Oaks. Whether it is called relaxation dentistry, oral conscious sedation, sleep dentistry, or anxiety-free dentistry, it is completely safe and very popular for nervous cosmetic and restorative dental patients in the Sherman Oaks area.

Though it may sound impossible, with oral conscious sedation, Sherman Oaks dentistry patients can actually relax during dental visits. In addition, healing times for oral surgery and extensive cosmetic dentistry procedures are often shorter if the patient is sedated during treatment.

Sedation dentistry is great for alleviating anxiety for Sherman Oaks patients, and oral conscious sedation can be effective for treating or working with the following:

  • Teeth sensitivity
  • Fear of needles
  • A powerful gag reflex
  • Difficulty controlling body movement
  • Lengthy multi-procedure visits
  • Difficulty becoming numb with traditional injections

If you need dental work more extensive than a filling – such as a root canal, tooth implant, crown replacement or wisdom tooth extraction –  call Sherman Oaks Dental at 818-465-9704 for information about sedation dentistry.
