Sedation Dentist Studio City

Sedation Dentist Studio City

Sedation dentistry is an option for most procedures at Studio City Dental Arts. Its safety and effectiveness make it a sensible choice for major and more complex procedures. It is also available for patients who experience extreme anxiety or would rather be unconscious for the duration of your dental treatment. Dr. Proshat Shahrestany has been specially trained for sedation dentistry, so trust that you are in capable hands for this treatment.

Sedation dentistry offers a lot of benefits. People who would otherwise avoid dental treatments due to dental anxiety or phobia can now have their teeth and gums taken care of without being stressed and nervous. Additionally, a lot of dental work can also be done in a single visit, which is more convenient for busy patients. In a single sitting, several root canals, crowns and fillings can all be done for you, comfortably.

In addition, sedation dentistry can also benefit patients who have conditions that affect the ability to control body movement. Patients who are sedated are very relaxed so the doctor can perform the necessary dental procedures. You will be asked to take a pill on the day of your procedure so you will feel relaxed for the entire treatment. You will be conscious and able to respond to instructions from the doctor, but you will have no recollection of your dental treatment when the sedative wears off. Time passes by quickly and your dental treatment is done before you know it.

Not every patient is an ideal candidate for sedation dentistry. This technique is not suitable for patients with conditions such as:

Pregnancy
Known allergies to benzodiazepine
Continued alcohol intoxication and abuse
Central nervous system (CNS) depression
Some cases of glaucoma

This technique is also contraindicated for patients with psychosis; impaired lungs, kidneys, or liver functions; or advanced age. Schedule a consultation with us to see if sedation dentistry is for you.
