Sedation Dentistry and General Anesthesia
Sedation dentistry, offered by Dr. Namiranian, accompanies many of the surgical treatments he provides. Sedation helps patients relax and feel comfortable during dental procedures. It involves the use of medications through Intravenous(IV) access, allowing patients to undergo even the most complex procedures with ease and comfort. In addition, Dr. Namiranian, uses other IV medications that help with healing following surgery.

Sedation dentistry involves the use of medication to help patients relax and feel more comfortable during their dental procedure. Sedatives can be administered in different forms, including inhalation, oral pills, or intravenous injection. Patients are usually awake but drowsy during the procedure and may not remember much of it afterward.
General anesthesia, on the other hand, involves the use of medication to put patients to sleep during the dental procedure. This is typically reserved for more extensive or complex procedures, such as oral surgery. Patients are unconscious and unaware of the procedure during this time.
Both sedation dentistry and general anesthesia can be safe and effective when administered by a trained and experienced dental professional. The choice of which approach to use will depend on the specific needs and preferences of the patient, as well as the type and extent of the dental procedure being performed. It’s important to discuss any concerns or questions with your dentist to determine the best approach for your individual situation.
