Sedation Dentistry in CA

Welcome to the Torrance Oral Surgery and Dental Implant Center, where your dental health and comfort are our top priorities. We understand that dental anxiety is a common concern, so we offer sedation dentistry, a safe and effective way to ensure you receive the oral care you need without any unnecessary stress. In this brief guide, we’ll walk you through the benefits of sedation dentistry and the types of sedation we offer to make your dental experience as pleasant as possible.

Benefits of Sedation Dentistry

Sedation dentistry, often referred to as “sleep dentistry,” offers numerous advantages:

  • Anxiety Relief: For those with dental phobias, sedation provides a sense of calm, making it easier to do during necessary dental procedures.
  • Pain Management: Sedation can help manage discomfort during treatments, ensuring a more comfortable experience.
  • Time Efficiency: With sedation, complex or multiple procedures can often be completed in one visit, reducing the number of appointments needed.
  • Minimized Gag Reflex: Sedation can help control your gag reflex, which can be challenging during some dental procedures.
  • Improved Oral Health: By eliminating anxiety-related barriers, patients are more likely to seek timely dental care, ultimately preserving their oral health.

Types of Sedation Offered

At Torrance Oral Surgery and Dental Implant Center, we offer several sedation options to cater to your specific needs:

  • Nitrous Oxide: Also known as “laughing gas,” nitrous oxide is a mild sedative inhaled through a mask. It induces a sense of relaxation and reduces anxiety while allowing you to remain conscious and responsive during the procedure.
  • Oral Sedation: Oral sedation involves taking a prescribed medication before your appointment. This type of sedation leaves you in a state of calm and relaxation, although you may not remember much of the procedure.
  • IV Sedation: Intravenous sedation is administered directly into your bloodstream by a licensed anesthesiologist, ensuring precise control of your sedation level. This method is often preferred for more complex procedures and can be adjusted as needed.

What Our Patients Say About Us

Even our patients who have been told in the past that they are not good candidates for dental implants have found options at our clinic.

  • Mindy W.

    This is a very welcoming center. Everyone seemed very competent and helpful. I had an oral biopsy today. No waiting. The staff were ready for me and all was in place. Dr. Yagoubian was warm , cheerful and I felt in extremely capable hands. I am so grateful I was referred to him. Sincerely, Mindy W.

  • Raj G.

    Dr. Yagoubian is excellent. I was in state for business when my wisdom tooth broke. I was lucky enough to find Dr. Yagoubian's office. Everyone there was professional and courteous. The procedure went smoothly. Dr. Y is highly skilled, meticulous, and a very personable health care provider (a rarity in the field, in my opinion). If you need an oral surgeon, I highly recommend him.

  • Chahab S.

    Dr Yagoubian is an excellent oral surgeon, supported by a very professional staff. They made the experience as stress-free as possible. Highly recommended.

  • Paul M.

    A positive experience from start to end. I got a sense that this was going to go well and it did. Two extractions, two implants, bone graft and removal of four part bridge. Leaving part of the bridge on one tooth. If there were 10stars they would be for Torrance oral surgery group and Dr. Alicia Wolf / Blanco Demtal Group for recommending Ben.
