Dr. Roya Shoffet-Yaghoubian takes pride in her relationships with seniors and their families, especially those with mobility issues and other health challenges. Because of this, Royal Dental Practice provides services that are in place to provide an experience that is stress-free, fear-free, and convenient for patients in the West Hills Los Angeles, California area. Our mobile dentistry service allows us to provide care for you from the comfort of your home.
Another service we are proud to offer is IV sedation, a form of dental sedative that can help those who suffer from dental fear and anxiety. This form of sedative is stronger than other options and is beneficial to our senior patients who may be suffering from Alzheimer’s, dementia, and other related conditions. IV sedation is well-suited for patients of all ages and is often used with patients who fear the dentist or may have issues sitting for longer procedures.
Surgical treatments that lend themselves well to sedation include extractions or the removal of damaged teeth. This method of tooth removal is an alternative to simple extraction. It is a viable option for broken teeth, wisdom tooth removal, or those that are not readily accessible and visible above the gum line. It should be noted that we also use an array of anesthetics or analgesics to minimize pain and pressure. Sedation dentistry is designed to induce a state of relaxation and to promote positive experiences that fight fear and apprehension about a dental visit.
Patients undergoing dental implant surgery can also benefit from deeper relaxing medications. Some sedatives, too, have an analgesic or pain-relieving effect. Any treatment recommended before dental implant placement, such as bone grafting, may be accompanied by “sleep” or sedation dentistry. Dental apprehension is common and often rooted in negative experiences in childhood. Our safe, fear-fighting, and painless approach to sedation is also suitable for individuals with a bad gag reflex or who tend to fidget a lot during their visit.
IV sedation fits in well with our kind, competent team. Call (818) 334-6655 with questions, or schedule your appointment at our West Hills Los Angeles, CA, office. And don’t forget … Royal Dental Practice makes house calls!
