Do you find yourself putting off scheduling your next dental appointment?

Do you find yourself taking over-the-counter or prescription medications to help you better manage the pain? If you have dental anxiety or phobia, you are not alone, but Dr. Martirosyan, our Glendale sedation dentist, can help.
Millions of Americans suffer from dental anxiety and dental phobias. These conditions can range from mild to severe, and they can make a trip to the dentist almost unbearable. Unfortunately, they can also seriously threaten your smile. You may put off treatment until the condition or damage has progressed too far to be managed conservatively. Dr. Martirosyan, our sedation dentist in Glendale, is committed to her patients’ comfort. She has designed her office to be the utmost in comfortable to help her patients feel at home, but she also addresses your underlying anxiety with dental sedation.
Glendale Sedation Dentist
Dr. Martirosyan, our Glendale sedation dentist, offers Laughing Gas for a gentle, relaxing form of sedation. Laughing Gas is a gas that is mixed with oxygen and administered through a mask that is placed over your nose. The gas goes to work within a few moments, and you will feel more relaxed as you breathe in through your nose. For some patients, Laughing Gas also helps ease pain. However, a local anesthetic will still be used as needed for the best results.
As the Laughing Gas takes effect, you will likely feel warm and a little bit drowsy. Anxiety will melt away, and you can sit back and relax as we restore your smile’s health. Dr. Martirosyan, our sedation dentist in Glendale, will explain your treatment options and sedation options so that you can make an informed decision about your smile. Depending on your needs, we can use Laughing Gas at each appointment if needed to ensure your comfort every time you visit us, or we can only use it for major procedures, such as extractions and root canals.
