Relieving Dental Anxiety | Encino, CA
Relieving Dental Anxiety
We understand that thoughts of visiting the dentist can be scary. However, our team works hard to debunk those fears. We are dedicated to providing comfortable care, a friendly atmosphere, and a welcoming, caring staff to each and every one of our patients. We cater to you throughout the appointment to make sure you are comfortable and relaxed. Below you can learn about how exactly we maintain our comfortable office and make you feel at home.
If you are nervous or even fearful of a dental procedure, we can help make sure you are comfortable and relaxed throughout the whole process. To do this, we offer two levels of dental sedation right here in our office. Depending on your specific situation, we can help you feel relaxed by offering nitrous oxide gas sedation or oral conscious sedation medication (Valium).
Nitrous oxide is used to take the edge off your nerves. Also known as laughing gas, nitrous can help you feel relaxed. This type of sedation wears off quickly but can be administered easily via a face mask. If you need just a little bit of help relaxing during a procedure, this sedation option may be for you.
We also offer oral conscious sedation medication. This medication, typically Valium, is used to render the patient groggy and very, very relaxed. Although you are completely conscious throughout the procedure, you may feel sleepy and will certainly be comfortable. This type of sedation wears off more slowly and is a little bit harder to adjust on the spot. You will need a ride to and from the office if you elect to use this type of sedation. If you are fearful and need a bit more help relaxing during a procedure, our oral sedation can help.

In addition to our dental sedation options, we also focus on maintaining a comfortable, relaxing office atmosphere for our patients. We want you to feel welcome and at home here.
