Understanding Sedation Options

To provide you with a stress-free way to achieve the beautiful smile you’ve been seeking, Dr. Farnoosh offers an extensive range of options for sedation dentistry at his Los Angeles office. During your consultation, he will explain those options and recommend the best one for you. Options include:

Nitrous Oxide: Dr. Farnoosh administers this mild sedative through a nose hood during the procedure. It can elevate your mood while minimizing pain and anxiety. For example, black or discolored gums can turn a potentially delightful smile into one that you want to hide. With nitrous oxide, you can feel relaxed and positive while Dr. Farnoosh performs gum bleaching. That treatment, which lasts less than an hour, will restore the radiance of your teeth – and, thanks to the sedative, you’ll be pleasantly amazed at how quickly the time passed!

IV Sedation: Administered with an injection into the bloodstream, this moderate sedative can make you feel as if you slept through your procedure. If anxiety has made you hesitant about a much-desired procedure such as gummy smile treatment, IV sedation can soothe those fears. If you opt for this method, you will need to have someone drive you home, as you may feel somewhat groggy following your appointment.

Oral Conscious Sedation: Dislike needles? For many of Dr. Farnoosh’s patients, sedation dentistry with this method is an effective choice. Most patients say they didn’t recall any aspects of their procedure. The oral sedative is taken prior to the appointment, with additional doses administered as needed during the procedure. For longer procedures such as dental implants, this approach offers a way to enjoy all the benefits of the treatment while feeling comfortable and confident.

“No Fear” Dentistry

For those who associate dental appointments with fear and discomfort, sedation dentistry offers a proven way to minimize the anxiety. Many of Dr. Farnoosh’s patients have discovered that their pain is dramatically reduced with this technique. In addition, because Dr. Farnoosh offers so many different types of sedation dentistry and bases the choice on your personal preferences, health, and procedure, sedation dentistry can be used for an array of procedures.

Because Dr. Farnoosh believes in “no fear” dentistry, he has created an extensive range of ways to provide you with comfort and convenience. For example, you can listen to music or watch a movie using “virtual reality” glasses in the dental chair while having your gummy smile treatment.

Dr. Farnoosh and his staff are highly experienced in easing patients’ concerns. Their goal is to provide you with a comfortable, quick and positive dental experience. To help them achieve that goal, it’s important that you be honest with them about your fears. That way, they can work with you to make your appointment a relaxing one with a happy outcome.

With years of experience and extensive knowledge of his field, Dr. Farnoosh is dedicated to providing his patients with healthy, dazzling teeth. Now, with sedation dentistry, you can join those patients in achieving beautiful teeth and gums without fear or anxiety.
