Toluca Lake Sedation Dentist Explains How Relaxation Treatments Are Used In Dentistry

Written by Dr. McKay on Oct 18, 2016

One of the biggest problems that prevents adults from getting necessary dental treatment is dental anxiety. Many people feel so anxious when they think about dental care that they can’t even schedule an appointment and get in the dentist’s chair.

Our Toluca Lake sedation dentists use the latest relaxation dentistry techniques and tools to put people at ease, and help them take control of their smiles.

As we just mentioned, sedation treatment is very useful for people who suffer from chronic dental fear and anxiety. Oral conscious sedation, for example, will allow you to relax before you even come to our office for your appointment. All you have to do is take a dentist-prescribed pill about an hour before your appointment is scheduled. You’ll start to feel calm and comfortable right away (keep in mind you’ll need someone to drive you to our office!).

Dental patients with particularly sensitive teeth, who are prone to discomfort in the dentist’s chair, can also benefit from sedation treatments. Sedation dulls your pain receptors so that you stay comfortable. Our team will help you pick the perfect sedation treatment for your needs and for the treatments you are undergoing.

Another reason that you may choose to use sedation is because you’re undergoing extensive, multi-phased treatment. Generally, sedation treatment actually allows our dental team to complete more treatments in one sitting. Using sedation, dental patients to do not get stressed and fatigued as treatment goes on; consequently, you can achieve more dramatic results in a shorter period of time.

As always, our Toluca Lake sedation dentists are here to answer any questions that you may have. You can also schedule a consultation with our team in order to get more personalized recommendations. With all that sedation dentistry has to offer, there really is no need to keep living with a smile that you don’t love!
