We recognize that dental procedures can be daunting for many. Some individuals feel such intense anxiety that undergoing dental care becomes nearly unfeasible. Additionally, certain treatments are ideally performed under sedation. Hence, we’re pleased to present our Beverly Hills Sedation Dentistry methods to our clients.

ABOUT SEDATION DENTISTRY

Sedation dentistry, often referred to as ‘sleep dentistry,’ utilizes sedatives prior to or during dental treatments to ensure the patient is relaxed enough for a comfortable procedure. These techniques have been practiced for over a hundred years and are both safe and effective.

Our physicians have undergone advanced training in sedation dentistry, elevating their expertise beyond the typical dental school curriculum. When exploring sedation dentistry, multiple methods and degrees of sedation are available. Dr. Rodney will evaluate your dental anxiety and requirements to recommend the most suitable and gentle sedation approach for your treatment.

SEDATION DENTISTRY
METHODS

We offer several methods of sedation, including:

Oral Sedation: A tablet-based, mild sedation method. It’s often chosen for patients with a needle phobia or those with minor apprehension about dental procedures. One tablet is given the night before the treatment to ensure rest, and another is administered an hour before the procedure. Medications for this sedation method include diazepam, triazolam, lorazepam, hydroxyzine, and zaleplon. The impact of this sedation depends on the dosage and specific medication prescribed.

Nitrous Oxide: Offers a slightly deeper relaxation compared to oral sedation. The procedure involves placing a mask over the patient’s nose, allowing them to breathe in the gas. The dentist can adjust the gas flow to ensure the patient’s utmost comfort. Once the patient is given pure oxygen, the sedative effects dissipate. Additionally, nitrous oxide often leaves patients feeling light and worry-free.

Intravenous Sedation: The most profound form of sedation is reserved for cases where the patient has significant dental anxieties or is undergoing an intensive procedure. While the patient remains awake during the treatment, they typically retain no memory. Those who choose IV sedation often describe the sensation as if they’ve slept throughout the entire process.
