Sedation Dentist In Beverly Hills

We can use conscious oral sedation to make your dental visit relaxed and pain-free. Sedation dentistry is commonly used to help reduce pain, make the patient more relaxed, and make the procedure simpler for the dentist. When the patient is relaxed, the dentist can do their best work.

With conscious oral sedation, you will be awake but very relaxed. You will be able to respond to the dentist and you will be aware of your surroundings. Some patients find they fall asleep while others are simply in a very relaxed state. Once the medication has worn off, you will forget all about your procedure.

Conscious sedation will help to make long procedures pass a lot quicker. It can also help to suppress your gag reflex, making it easier for your dentist to work. This also makes it far more comfortable for patients with a sensitive gag reflex.

Patients with dental phobia may avoid treatment and put their dental health at risk. We don’t want you to experience any unnecessary pain or discomfort as a result of your dental phobia. If you’re a nervous patient, ask our friendly reception team about sedation options.

All you have to do is take a pill before your appointment, so you can start to feel more relaxed about your visit straight away. Some patients find it difficult to take the first step, but sedation dentistry can make it easier. You won’t be in any pain throughout the procedure and you won’t remember it.

Caring for someone after sedation

If you are taking someone home after their appointment, you should be aware of the following care tips. The person may feel drowsy for up to 8 hours after their appointment. You will need to take them home and stay with them to make sure they are safe.

The person can sleep after their procedure and this can help them to recover. They should be easily roused if they fall asleep and they should also respond when you speak to them.

The person can start drinking clear fluids as soon as they leave their appointment. Progress slowly from clear fluids to liquid foods and then solid foods. This will help to prevent nausea and vomiting. With some dental procedures, the person should avoid drinking with a straw.
