Often times dentists will use local anesthetics during a dental treatment, but sometimes a sedative is also given to nervous or even anxious patients.

Being scared of the dentist is not uncommon as past experiences with painful dentists might trigger unsettling emotions toward any major upcoming dental treatment.

Dental offices that offer sedation, like Zadeh Dentistry, can help calm nervous energies and offer patients facing a major dental procedure a pleasant pain-free and anxiety-free visit.

More invasive dental procedures such as tooth extractions and dental implants may even require using sleep inducing sedation, often referred to as “twilight sedation”.

Sleep sedation is beneficial because it results in a loss of feeling which can keep patients comfortable while also drastically reducing any pain related stress or anxiety.

General anesthesia could also be administered to patients to induce a temporary loss of consciousness during very long procedures.

Dr. Zadeh, who has been practicing general dentistry for over 30 years, may recommend deep sedation or local anesthesia for adults and children alike with extreme dental anxiety, or those with uncontrollable body movements that may interfere with the procedure.

While sleep sedation and general anesthesia are safely administered to tens of thousands of patients every year to treat anxiety and control pain, it’s important to share your medical history, current medications and allergies with Dr. Zadeh as these might hinder the ability to use sedation treatments safely and effectively.

Dr. Zadeh is committed to providing the best dental care for all of his patients by using the latest in dental technology including sedation dentistry. We would be more than happy to set up a consultation with Dr. Zadeh to see if sedation dentistry is right for you.
