Sedation Dentistry | Manhattan Beach Dentist

480865629Dr. Anthony Yamada and his team of professionals are one of the few dental offices that offer oral sedation in the city of Manhattan Beach. Sedation dentistry is an innovative field of dentistry that is extremely useful for those who fear the dentist, hate needle, have highly sensitive teeth, or are immune to the numbing effects of anesthesia. Although sedation dentistry may not be right for everyone, Dr. Anthony Yamada encourages patients who are undergoing periodontal treatment to consider sedation dentistry to ease discomfort, and paranoia.

What Is Sedation Dentistry?

Sedation dentistry uses medication to help patients relax during dental procedures. It’s sometimes referred to as “sleep dentistry,” although that’s not entirely accurate. Patients are usually awake with the exception of those who are under general anesthesia.

The levels of sedation used include:

  • Minimal sedation — you are awake but relaxed.
  • Moderate sedation (formerly called “conscious sedation”) — you may slur your words when speaking and not remember much of the procedure.
  • Deep sedation — you are on the edge of consciousness but can still be awakened.
  • General anesthesia — you are completely unconscious.

Dr. Anthony Yamada guarantees that integrating sedation dentistry in to your procedure is absolutely comfortable and safe. Patients agree that sedation dentistry was the best option for their procedure because it allowed Dr. Anthony Yamada and his staff to work thoroughly for maximum results.

Inlays & Onlays | Manhattan Beach, Ca Dentist

489195623Inlays and Onlays are dental restorations that are perfect for any individual that is not a good candidate for dental fillings but does not need a crown to restore their teeth.

Dental inlays and onlays are used when old fillings need to be removed or replaced. A dental inlay is similar to a filling and fits inside the cusp tips (top edges) of the tooth.

A dental onlay is more extensive and extends over the cusps of the treated tooth. Although inlays and onlays both restore the function of teeth back to their natural strength,inlays are bonded to the center of the tooth while onlays are bonded to the biting surface of the tooth.
Inlays and onlays are completely natural looking dental restorations that will restore the strength and stability to your teeth. Dr. Yamada emphasizes that inlays and onlays will make your oral hygiene routines easier! In only two dental visits, your oral health will drastically improve with inlays and onlays.
