Dr. Stelmach, a Beverly Hills cosmetic dentist, offers a sedation dentistry solution designed to make sure you’re comfortable in the chair because there’s never any reason you should feel anxious with Dr. Stelmach at your side. The most common questions regarding sedation dentistry are answered.

What is sedation dentistry?

Sleep dentistry, also known as sedation dentistry, is a term used to describe various methods and techniques that can be implemented for you so that your dental visit is easy, as well as relaxing.

How does sedation dentistry work?

The whole process is simple. Dr. Stelmach and his team will present different methods and help you choose which is best for you. All methods will aid in keeping you calm and relaxed throughout your visit. The goal of sleep dentistry is to make sure you’re as comfortable as you can be.

What types of sedation dentistry methods are there?

There are different methods you can choose from and the procedure you have will better determine which one is best for you. We offer oral sedatives, IV sedation for deep sleep, and other high-tech systems we use to help curb your anxiety and fear. Read about them in our gentle dentistry page.

Is sedation dentistry safe?

Absolutely! Sedation dentistry methods have been used for many years now. The techniques we use are in compliance with the guidelines and standards set by The American Dental Association (ADA).

Can I drive myself home after everything is completed?

Because you may still be in a heavily relaxed state, we strongly recommend that someone drive you to and from your dental appointment. Any method or medication used will wear off by 24 hours.

Are there any side effects with sedation dentistry?

Some patients have reported feeling nauseous and/or fatigued, but you should feel fine with food and fluid intake following your dental visit.
