Say Goodbye to Dental Anxiety

Dental anxiety is an incredibly common phenomenon. Unfortunately, it can be one that occasionally causes people to skip important appointments and miss out on necessary dental work. This is exactly why Dr. Amin Samadian developed his advanced sedation techniques, which allow him to keep dental work easy and worry-free. 

Using oral sedation and nitrous oxide, Dr. Samadian can relieve your dental anxiety and make it easier for you to get the dental care that you need. Reach out and set up your consultation to learn more about sedation dentistry in San Francisco today.

When Should I Consider Sedation?

We might recommend that you give sedation dentistry a try for a variety of reasons. If you’ve found yourself experiencing extreme stress or anxiety about seeing the dentist, for example, even when the visit is for a relatively simple procedure like a cleaning, sedation might be a good option for you.

Some patients experience acute dental anxiety in a general sense. Others only deal with these feelings when faced with more complex procedures, or dental devices that cause feelings of nervousness. Whatever the case may be, Dr. Samadian can use oral sedation or nitrous oxide to keep you calm and comfortable during your procedure.

Receive Worry-Free Dental Care

With sedation dentistry, Dr. Samadian’s primary goal is to relieve any fear you may experience during your trip to his office. He can make it possible for you to receive the crucial dental care you need by effectively subduing the part of your brain that controls worry and makes you feel anxiety in the first place. These techniques go a few steps beyond the traditional local anesthetic that would be used during a procedure, allowing you to feel relaxed and comfortable while Dr. Samadian does his work.

What Does Sedation Dentistry Involve?

If Dr. Samadian and his team find you to be a good candidate for sedation, you’ll receive medication in the form of either oral sedation or nitrous oxide. 

Oral Sedation

Oral sedation usually involves the prescription of two doses of a medication called Triazolam. You’ll take one before bed the evening before your procedure, and another about an hour before it begins. Since you won’t be able to drive on this medication, you’ll need someone to escort you to and from your appointment. Depending on your specific needs, Dr. Samadian may also use other medications and will discuss this with you during your consultation. 

Nitrous Oxide

Alternatively, nitrous oxide is inhaled through a small mask that sits comfortably over your nose during your procedure. Dr. Samadian will mix the nitrous gas with oxygen as it’s delivered to ensure that it’s safe for your body. You can expect to feel a relaxed, floating sensation and sometimes even some tingling in your hands and feet. Once we’ve confirmed that you’re completely comfortable and calm, we’ll begin your procedure.

Is the Sedation Process Painful?

Both oral sedation and nitrous oxide are absolutely painless. Oral sedation is administered in pill form, and nitrous oxide is breathed in, so no injections will be required. In fact, some patients wind up feeling so relaxed that they even fall asleep. Many patients also forget a majority of the procedure, which is another great benefit of sedation dentistry.
