Sedation Dentistry in North Hollywood
Are you neglecting your oral health care due to fear of going to the dentist? Don’t worry, you’re not alone. The good news is that the Victory Plaza Dental Group offers sedation dentistry in the Los Angeles area that’s meant to put your mind at ease.
Skipping appointments or living with tooth pain affects your quality of life, and it will eventually impact your overall health. Many fears and anxieties go back to an unpleasant dental visit during our childhoods.
Our goal is to reverse that trend and make a visit to the dentist an enjoyable experience for everyone. Because we’re a family practice, we go out of our way to provide a safe environment for kids. We also work hard to create an anxiety-free atmosphere for our adult patients.
Sedation dentistry is not the same as anesthesia. Our dentist will administer medications that will out you in a dreamy state and ease your anxiety. The type of medication depends upon your anxiety level and can range from administering nitrous oxide gas in mild cases to giving you an intravenous sedative if your fear is strong. We can also provide you with an oral medication that you’ll take about an hour before your visit if gas or an IV sound too drastic for your tastes.
Whatever approach we take, your care plan will be tailored to your comfort level and the results of your personalized consultation with our dentist.
In most cases, you’ll be fully awake during your procedure, but you’ll mind it much less. You’ll even be able to drive yourself home safely after your dental work is completed. Many of our patients tell us that they don’t even remember why they were nervous about going to the dentist afterward.
