Dental Emergencies

You're Not Alone

You might be surprised to learn that many of our patients express concerns about dental anxiety. Sometimes, anxiety has kept them from getting the dental care they need to stay healthy. This can lead to dental emergencies and serious conditions that may require tooth loss. Not to mention, without regular care, your smile can age prematurely and become uncomfortable.woman fearful of dentist | Sedation dentistry santa monica

We want to make dentistry easy for all of our patients – especially our fearful ones. We offer sedation dentistry to ease your fears and make your appointment both comfortable and stress-free.

Nitrous Oxide Sedation in 90403

Nitrous oxide is a great option for patients who need a little assistance taking the edge off. It is a mild form of sedation that we administer through a small nose mask while you are having treatment. It enters and leaves your system quickly, so this is a great option for patients who do not want to take the rest of the day to recover or arrange a ride home.

Oral Sedation Dentistry

Anxiety can make it harder for patients to become fully numb, making dentistry a stressful experience and perpetuating the cycle of dental anxiety. Not only does oral sedation relax you, but it makes it easier for you to become fully numb. Sedation can even subdue a strong gag reflex.
