Have you ever put off important dental care because of fear, anxiety, stress or physical discomfort? At Westside Dental Associates, we don’t want anything to stand between you and a healthy smile.
If anxiety or pain is standing in your way, Dr. Latner would like you to know we can help. Safe and effective oral conscious sedation makes it possible for patients to feel relaxed and at peace while receiving the care their smile needs.
What Is Oral Conscious Sedation?
Oral conscious sedation uses a combination of nitrous oxide and a mild oral sedative. With these combined, patients who have felt restless or anxious in the past can achieve a level of calm that may have seemed impossible in the past
How Does Oral Conscious Sedation Work?
If you’ve chosen to use oral conscious sedation for your procedure, Dr. Latner will prescribe a mild oral sedative for you to take prior to your next appointment. Then, once the sedative has taken effect, Dr. Latner will administer nitrous oxide to enhance the soothing effects of your pill.
While you’re sedated, Dr. Latner will be able to complete hours of dental work while you relax in our Los Angeles office without you even noticing the passage of time. Some patients even become so relaxed that they fall asleep.
