Oral Sedation

This type of sedation dentistry comes in the form of a tablet or capsule. It is given about a half-hour to an hour before a patient’s procedure and can greatly reduce stress and anxiety. A variety of effects may be experienced depending on the type of oral sedative used, as well as the dosage administered by Dr. Chaves.

Nitrous Oxide

Nitrous oxide is a gaseous sedative that is given immediately prior to treatment. This is a mild form of sedation dentistry that is administered through a mask. Frequently called “laughing gas, nitrous oxide (N2O) sedation keeps patients awake and alert during their treatment, but greatly reduces their stress, fear, and anxiety. And since laughing gas wears off quickly, patients are often able to drive themselves home after their treatment.

IV Sedation

Intravenous (IV) sedation is a popular choice for patients seeking sedation dentistry in Woodland Hills, CA. This type of anesthesia induces a sleep-like state but allows patients to remain conscious during their dental procedure. One of the benefits of this method is that it has amnesic effects, which means that patients may not remember parts or the entirety of their treatment. However, because the effects can last for a while, patients must have someone else drive them home after their visit for safety reasons.

Make Pain and Procedural Anxiety a Thing of the Past.
