Dentistry While You Sleep: Anxiety Free
Over 40 million Americans have some level of anxiety when it comes to going to the dentist. For some of them, the fear factor is so great that it forces them to neglect their dental needs.
Imagine not being afraid to go to the dentist and being able to complete all your dental care in one appointment only! Should you need a cleaning, dental implants, bone grafting, extractions, crowns, veneers, or an extensive full mouth restoration, we offer real sedation dentistry that will take away your anxiety and will make your dental experience a breeze!
A contemporary method of anesthesia, sleep dentistry is very safe and effective. You can sleep through your entire procedure and most wake up feeling refreshed, not groggy (the way you would if you were under general anesthesia). You can have a healthy, beautiful new smile without remembering a thing about your appointment!
So how does dentistry while you sleep work?
You are given a precisely controlled amount of medication through an IV. Some of the medications we use would last only one to three minutes if given as a single injection, but because the IV provides a steady stream of medication, you stay asleep throughout your treatment. When your dental work is complete, we turn off the medication and after just a few minutes you wake up. There are also reversing agents in addition to our main medications, which makes the procedure even safer.
Dr. Amin is one of the most experienced sleep dentists in California. He has been formally trained in the technique through residency. In fact, Dr. Amin is a sedation examiner for the state of California, which means that he observes other dentists’ technique and passes or fails their certification. Dr. Amin is one of less than 1% of doctors in Burbank (and in California) that is licensed to administer intravenous sedation.
In addition to dentistry while you sleep, we offer other forms of anesthesia, including pills to be taken orally. Our main priority is your comfort. We want all of our patients to be free from anxiety, stress, and fear throughout their appointment. If you think that sleep dentistry may be right for you, please contact our office to learn more about it!
