Anxiety and fear can often keep patients from visiting their dentist on a regular basis. For some, the dentist’s chair can be a scary place for patients of all ages, adults included. One way to ease the concerns of patients who find the dentist’s office a place of stress and anxiety is with sedation by a sedation dentist. Los Angeles practice Downtown Dental focuses on providing a calm and relaxing experience by offering sedation dentistry.
Sedation dentistry allows dentists such as Dr. Mungcal to calm a patient to the point where they can have dental work completed. From a dental filling to a complete smile makeover, sedation dentistry can allow dentists to accomplish plenty of dental work in just one simple appointment.
There are various types of sedation dentistry, with one of the more popular options being oral sedation coupled with nitrous oxide. With oral sedation dentistry, Dr. Mungcal will prescribe an oral medication that is taken before your dental appointment. Transportation will need to be arranged before and after the appointment. However, you will be fully conscious during the visit. When the appointment is completed, you will arrive back home where you will sleep off the medication. Afterwards, patients have little recollection of the visit, but their dental work is complete. This is one of the easiest ways for Dr. Mungcal to get anxious patients into the dental office for treatments.
I.V. or full general anesthesia is also available to patients who need it. While there are many options out there available for use by sedation dentists, Los Angeles dentist Dr. Mungcal will ensure you are comfortable and relaxed throughout your procedure, regardless of the sedation used. With a friendly, caring team that is concerned about your dental care, our practice will make sure that you get the care you need for great oral and dental health.
