Frequently Asked Questions

A man is worked on in the dental office | Family Dentist Manhattan Beach CA Modern American Dentistry, we provide comfortable treatment from start to finish. Because we manage your pain effectively during your dental procedure, you will have little to no pain after your appointment.

We address your comfort from the start, using the appropriate anesthetic in appropriate doses to meet your needs. If you have a history of having trouble getting numb, we can help! By managing any dental anxiety you have, we can help you get numb faster and stay numb for your entire appointment.

Both nitrous oxide and oral sedation help to reduce dental-related stress and fear.

As your anesthetic wears off, you may feel a slight sensitivity after certain procedures such as dental crowns, root canal therapy, and implant placement. You can effectively manage your pain with over-the-counter medications for a day or two until you heal.

If you ever experience severe or prolonged pain, contact our office right away so that we can assess the situation and restore your comfort. It is never necessary for you to endure pain. We place your comfort at the top of our priorities.

If you are looking for a gentle dentist, contact us to schedule an appointment with Dr. Joel Gould or Dr. Gabe Adorjan today!

A woman is worked on in the dental chair | Sedation Dentist Manhattan BeachAt Modern American Dentistry, we provide pain-free dental treatment for our patients’ comfort. We accomplish this by delivering effective anesthetic and managing our patients’ anxiety.

Feeling anxious about your appointment can actually prevent you from feeling the full effects of your anesthetic. If you are a nervous patient, you are not alone! Since we are committed to providing outstanding care, we provide two types of anti-anxiety dental treatments for our patients.

Nitrous oxide sedation – This mild form of sedation helps you relax, is short-lived, and leaves your body within minutes. This works best for patients with mild anxiety who just need a little help relaxing.

Nitrous oxide is so safe, we can even use it for anxious kids.

Oral sedation – If you have a long history of dental anxiety or experience intense fear about your dental appointments, oral sedation is a more powerful sedative that will bring you even greater comfort. The effects of oral sedation are stronger and longer lasting. You will need someone to drive you home after your appointment.

You will remain conscious but will feel totally relaxed. You may even fall asleep.

Oral sedation is safe for most adults and works best for lengthy procedures or surgery.
