Sedation Dentistry Makes Going To The Dentist Easy



Easy Dental Experience


One of the biggest factors that prevent patients from getting the dental care they need is fear or anxiety of the dentist and dental procedures. However, delaying dental treatment will only make your problems worse and potentially require more extensive treatments. Dr. Amir HagShenas offers soothing sedation dentistry to help patients enjoy a positive dental experience free of anxiety or discomfort. Dr. HagShenas has changed the lives of many patients who reported being initially scared of visiting the dentist with the help of sedation dentistry. Getting everyone into a healthy oral and overall state is our goal and those who are embarrassed or nervous are encouraged to experience the difference sedation dentistry can make.



Sedation Dentistry Options


Local anesthetic

Oral sedation

IV sedation

>Hand holding local anesthetic

This option is used to block sensations of pain or discomfort during your procedures. Dr. HagShenas will inject the anesthesia at the site of your treatment, which will numb the area. Most patients report only feeling a slight pressure during their treatments while under the effects of local anesthetic sedation dentistry.

Sedation pill

A stronger form of sedation dentistry, oral sedation is taken in pill form before your procedure begins. This pill will put you in a sleepy, relaxed state, which allows Dr. HagShenas to easily perform your dental care. You will be able to respond to us but may not remember much from your treatments.

IV sedation

IV sedation is the strongest form of sedation dentistry that Dr. HagShenas offers. We will have a licensed anesthesiologist come in to administer the sedation and monitor your health. While under IV sedation, you will likely fall asleep during your procedure and will not remember most of the treatment. We primarily use IV sedation for larger procedures like full arch dental implants or full mouth reconstruction.
