Sedation Dentistry in Gardena, CA

At Gardena Dental Care, we practice sedation dentistry. Many procedures can be done under sedation, reducing your consciousness, and easing the anxiety associated with the dental work you need done. Our mission is to help our patients get the treatment they need with minimal discomfort and pain.

What Is sedation Dentistry?

Many of us have fears about dental treatment. We understand, and offer sedation dentistry so you can protect and maintain your dental health without worries about pain or discomfort. At our practice, we use sedatives to reduce the level of consciousness, appropriate to the procedure, including full sedation. You will feel relaxed and comfortable during your procedure, whether you are getting fillings, a crown, gum or tooth restorations, or any other procedure. Your feelings about dentistry are bound to change.

Do I Need sedation Dentistry?

If you have a low pain threshold, or great anxiety about dental treatments, sedation dentistry might be the solution you need. It is also indicated for those who have a gag reflex that gets in the way of treatment, highly sensitive teeth, or need extensive dental work in one appointment. Those who have fear of needles and shots can also benefit from our sedation dental treatment. Schedule an appointment with Dr. Barkhordar and find out more about our sedation process and find out if it is right for you. Your dental and medical history must be reviewed, and our focus will be on finding the perfect method to treat your dental problem.

Types of Sedation

We use several types of sedation for our patients at Gardena Dental Care. The factors guiding a decision include your level of anxiety about treatment and the procedure to be performed. A common type of sedation is nitrous oxide, an inhaled gas. A mask is placed over your nose, and you will inhale the gas to help you relax. The effects of the gas wear off quickly, and in most cases, you are sufficiently recovered to drive yourself home after treatment.

Oral sedation involves taking a pill that makes you drowsy. These pills are available in various strengths, and our dentist will ensure the right level is administered. You will either feel completely relaxed and calm, while still awake (minimal sedation), or you will be extremely groggy, and will likely not remember very much about the procedure (moderate sedation).

We also offer sedation administered with an IV (intravenous). The sedation medication will enter your vein directly, and you will become groggy within seconds. This form of sedation is frequently used for longer dental procedures. The amount of medication you are getting is carefully controlled, and the level customized to work best for you.

Deep sedation is the right choice for certain procedures. With deep sedation, you will be almost, or fully unconscious during the entire procedure. You will essentially be in a sedated sleep, and upon awakening, may not even realize your procedure has been completed.
