Sedation Dentistry Beverly Hills CA

Some people spend months dealing with painful tooth sensitivity due to dental anxiety. Some even put off seeing a dentist for years. At the Beverly Hills Advanced Specialties of Dentistry, we understand that dental anxiety is a real phobia, so we treat all of our patients respectfully, addressing and offering solutions for their dental fears.  If you find that your trepidation is preventing you from getting the dental care you need, leading Beverly Hills sedation endodontists, Dr. Fanny Yacman and Dr Frank Vidjak can help.  We are one of the premier endodontic offices in the Beverly Hills area that provide this sleep dentistry option, so you can enjoy a relaxing dental visit and receive the treatment you need comfortably.

As an Endodontist in Beverly Hills, sedation dentistry is offered as part of your procedure. Dr. Yacaman is a certified oral conscience sedation dentist. Our sedation options include IV sedation and oral conscious sedation. If IV sedation is selected, Dr Yacaman and Dr Vidjak enlists the assistance of a trusted and certified anesthesiologist. Whether oral conscious or IV sedation is selected the doctor will monitor our patient’s vitals during the entire dental procedure. IV sedation allows our Los Angeles patients the benefits of falling asleep in a dental chair and waking up to a healthier mouth. Oral conscious sedation is another option where patients are typically awake enough to answer questions during the procedure but do not remember it afterwards. We have received great feedback from our patients regarding both of these methods.

If dental anxiety is something that you would prefer to deal with on a natural level, Dr. Yacaman and Dr Vidjak take pride in their abilities to calm patients’ fears organically through means of breathing exercises, calming music, and soothing aromatherapy.

“I don’t think of it as a nuisance,” says Los Angeles sedation dentist Dr. Yacaman, “When a patient has dental anxiety, I take more time with them and help them to relax. We almost always end up laughing and I haven’t met a single person who couldn’t handle it because of their fear of being in a dental chair.”

Our Beverly Hills sedation Endodontists can identify why your tooth is hurting and take care of your needs, pain free! Patients seeking Los Angeles sedation dentistry, can rest assure that their health and comfort are our top priorities.

Frequently asked questions

Sedation dentistry is the use of sedatives to assist nervous patients in relaxing so that their dental team can give them the treatment they require without creating excessive stress or worry.

Nitrous oxide, sometimes known as laughing gas, breathed through a mask before your treatment, a sedation tablet taken orally an hour or so before your procedure, or a sedation drug administered intravenously during your therapy.

Individuals suffering from dental fear and anxiety, those in need of sophisticated dental procedures, those with a sensitive gag reflex, those who have difficulty sitting still for extended treatments, and those requiring oral surgery.

The effects of nitrous oxide usually wear off before the conclusion of your treatment, allowing you to drive home on your own. If you choose a sedative pill or IV sedation, you must bring a driver to transport you home after treatment.

Your skills and abilities may be compromised for up to 24 hours after treatment. As a result, don’t drive, handle heavy machinery, or make any significant judgments until you’ve recovered. It would be best not to drink alcohol until your sedative has gone off completely.
