Smile Through Your Visit With Sedation Dentistry
Are you one of the many folks in Los Angeles who have let fear keep you away from the dentist’s chair?
At Westwood Dental Smiles, we understand where you are coming from. But, because we take the oral health of our community seriously, we think you should know that when you purposefully avoid the dentist, you are living dangerously.
The longer you stay away, you become increasingly vulnerable to cavities, tooth decay, tooth loss, gum disease, and any number of preventable infections.
Whatever your current situation, our team is ready to welcome you back and put you on the good road again.
We promise there won’t be any lectures (we find that these only add insult to injury). What’s more, we proudly offer sedation dentistry services that guarantee your experience in our L.A. dental office will be pain free.
“I Wanna Be Sedated”
If you are afraid because you associate dental health with painful treatments, or you simply need to have your nerves calmed when visiting a medical office, you are in good company.
A staggering amount of Americans are paralyzed by anxiety when their thoughts turn to dentists and doctors.
To us, one of the major benefits of sedation dentistry is that, while in our care, you can relax more and trust that regardless of your situation, you won’t be dealing with (or at least feeling any) pain during your treatment.
When you do decide to visit our Westwood Dental Smiles office, you will be able to choose the level of sedation that best fits your current needs.
Just Say NO!
Nitrous oxide provides a mild sedation that is primarily designed to relax your nerves. Our staff will control the levels so that you won’t become tense or anxious. But you will remain alert.
Give Me A Prescription For Relaxation
If you have a higher level of fear and anxiety, you may require a higher level of sedation, in the form of a prescription sedative pill. Under oral sedation, you will remain conscious but, in most cases, will have no memory of your dental treatment.
Put Me Under, Please
If your dental anxiety is severe, or in the event that you want to proceed with multiple treatment procedures, then IV sedation is probably the method for you.
As the name implies, this sedation is delivered through an IV tube. Make no mistake, these sedatives will put you completely under and, when you come out of it, you will have no memory of any procedures.
Get Past Your Fears Today
Remember, whatever your anxiety level, the team at Westwood Dental Smiles is here to help put your fears to rest.
Moreover, you don’t have to be afraid of our costs.
We want dentistry to be affordable and accessible to everyone in our community. Accordingly, we honor most insurance plans, and we also offer payment plans such as Care Credit and extended options, like low monthly payments with no interest for up to two years.
