Studio City Dental’s sleep dentistry for high-anxiety patients
Sleep dentistry, also known as sedation dentistry, involves receiving comprehensive dental treatment in a dental or hospital setting under IV sedation administered by a licensed anesthesiologist, M.D., while the dentist provides the dental treatment. The best candidates for sleep dentistry are dental-phobic patients who experience high-anxiety when undergoing any type of dental treatment. It is also beneficial for patients with disorders, such as a hyperactive gag reflex. Sedation dentistry of Los Angeles alleviates dentophobia and allows patients to be relaxed while receiving dental work, such as cleanings, fillings, crowns, and bridges, and more.
