IV Sedation in Dentistry
Did you know that less than 1% of all California dentists are licensed to perform IV Sedation?
At Dr. Zak Long Beach Dental Care, we are one of the few offices in California that is licensed for this form of sedation. IV Sedation involves the intravenous injection of a sedative to make you or a family member feel drowsy and provide pain relief during various procedures and surgeries. Once the sedation wears off and the procedure is over, you or your loved one will awake as if they have just taken a nap with no negative recollection of the treatment. This provides the ultimate comfort that a pill or gas sedation cannot provide, and we have an impeccable two-decade record of IV sedation.
Nitrous Oxide Sedation in Dentistry
What is Nitrous Oxide Sedation?
This sedation technique requires you or your family member to breathe in a mixture of nitrous oxide and oxygen through a nasal mask. At Dr. Zak Long Beach Dental Care, this is extremely popular and very effective for less painful or severe procedures. This is a “laughing gas” that helps will help you or your loved ones relax quickly and eliminates pain throughout the procedure.
Oral Sedation in Dentistry
What is Oral Sedation?
With Oral Sedation, you will be provided with a pill to take the night before or several hours before your procedure. Once the procedure begins, you should feel calm until the very end of treatment.
