Dental Sedation

Dental sedation is a form of sedative provided to dental patients by a skilled, trained dental team. Sedation is used for a myriad of reasons, but mainly is used to help people who have anxiety and fear over treatment. Because patients are conscious, the sedation used at our dental office provides a higher level of safety.

Mid-Wilshire Dental Care in Los Angeles offers two types of sedation options; nitrous oxide and oral sedation. Nitrous oxide is what is commonly known as “laughing gas”. It is delivered through a mouth cover from a tank, through a hose. Oral sedation is a medication administered orally. The pill is taken about an hour before your visit, so that when you arrive at the dentist, you will be calm and anxiety-free. Dental sedation doesn’t put you fully asleep, but it will make you feel groggy and in a calm state. Some people DO fall asleep, but they are still conscious.
Many different people may benefit from sedation, including people with dental fears, people who have had bad experiences with the dentist, individuals who have low pain tolerance, people with extensive gag reflexes, and people who may need long or extensive treatments. After your visit, you will still be groggy so we recommend having a friend or loved one drive you home. If you think that you or your family member would benefit from dental sedation, we would love to bring you in for a consultation. We will assess your medical history and answer any questions that you have. Dr. Bijan Afar will then help decide if dental sedation is right for you. No need to avoid the dentist due to fear - we can help.
