Sedation dentistry is one of the most important methods practiced by Dr. Julian H. Zhitnitsky DDS, as well as general dentistry techniques. Sedation dentistry is particularly useful for any patient who is worried or anxious about dental procedures. Sedation dentistry, as practiced by Dr. Julian H. Zhitnitsky DDS, involves the use of oral medications that help to relax and soothe the patient before and during treatment. Patients find it hard to recall the treatment they have received after it has been completed, despite being kept completely conscious throughout the procedure. This option involves continuous and meticulous supervision by the dentist and dental staff throughout the treatment period. Sedation dentistry, as practiced at the Encino Dream Smile, is particularly suitable for those who have less free time at their disposal and wish to complete as much treatment as possible in a single session. It is also a very suitable option for those who experience sensitive gag reflexes.
Dr. Julian H. Zhitnitsky’s treatment at Encino Dream Smile extends to those patients who have experienced medical concerns, such as sleep apnea and gum disease. These problems can be diagnosed and treated at Encino Dream Smile by non-surgical means for those for whom this method is preferable.
