Many people experience fear and anxiety about dental procedures, but when these feelings prevent individuals from receiving necessary oral care, it can lead to serious consequences. Painless and Anxiety-Free Dental Procedures are possible with the help of professional care and treatment.
Recent statistics show that approximately one-third of Americans avoid visiting the dentist each year due to fear of pain and discomfort. At Los Angeles Oral Surgeons, our team of experienced dentists and oral surgeons understands the importance of providing painless and anxiety-free oral surgeries to promote optimal oral health.
Neglecting oral health can result in serious consequences, such as cavities, severe periodontal disease, tooth loss, and significant pain. However, with the help of anesthetic options for oral surgery, patients can receive necessary treatments without fear of discomfort or pain.

Using Sedation or Anesthesia to Combat Pain & Anxiety
At our office, we tailor our approach to each patient’s needs before and during treatment. For many dental procedures, we use a local anesthetic to reduce patient discomfort. Some patients prefer nitrous oxide, which they can inhale to help them stay relaxed. Others who are particularly sensitive may prefer to take mild or strong pills or liquid for oral sedation.
When performing more complex procedures such as tooth extractions, dental implants, bone grafting, or full mouth rehabilitation, our doctors will administer the appropriate amount of sedative and analgesic as an intravenous sedation to address any concerns about anxiety or pain. We carefully monitor the sedation to ensure absolute safety.
