Our Advanced Dentistry Services
Nitrous Oxide Sedation
Sedation dentistry can help patients suffering from dental anxiety feel at ease during their procedures. At our Woodland Hills office, we use nitrous oxide to help you relax at your next dental appointment. Commonly known as “laughing gas,” nitrous oxide is a safe and effective dental sedation method for patients of all ages, allowing you to feel no pain even during some of the most invasive dental treatments.
Whether you have dental phobia, a gag reflex, or a fear of needles, nitrous oxide can create a relaxed dental experience without causing amnesia. There aren’t any lingering effects caused by nitrous oxide, so you’ll be able to drive yourself home and continue your day as normal after your appointment with minimal rest.
Temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD) is a progressive disorder where excess stress is placed on the jaw. Fortunately, you don’t have to live with the pain caused by TMD as it can be treated with several procedures, including jaw realignment. If left untreated, this condition could lead to a host of other oral health complications. As a TMJ specialist in Southern California, Dr. Fredericks can offer effective TMJ Treatment in Woodland Hills and the surrounding Southern California areas.
Our practice offers orthodontic treatment, oral appliances, and restorative dental work to realign your jaw and alleviate any painful symptoms. Your treatment will be personalized to your needs depending on the severity of your TMJ issues.
Nightguards are custom-made dental appliances that can be worn while sleeping to protect your mouth from jaw problems caused by teeth grinding (bruxism). This common oral habit can lead to several dental health issues if left untreated, potentially requiring further invasive treatment. That’s why our Woodland Hills dentist Dr. Fredericks offers comfortable and protective custom-created night guards to prevent further oral health complications and aid in a better night’s sleep.
Unlike over-the-counter nightguards, our customizable, dental-grade mouthguards fit perfectly in your mouth for a natural fit. Our team understands the importance of your oral health and making safety our top priority, so you can be confident in knowing that your night guard will be created with your wellbeing in mind.
