One thing that many people have in common is a fear. Whether it is a fear of heights or they squirm at the sight of a spider, there are many different fears that people have, and they all affect them differently. One fear that many people share is a fear of the dentist. Though the fear may be slight for some, for others the fear can be crippling, causing them to put off the dental work they so desperate need performed. Though you may feel as though there is nothing you can do, Dr. Les Latner is able to calm the fears of his patients by offering oral conscious sedation at his Los Angeles, CA dental office.
Aside from having a fear of the dentist, there are many other people who can benefit from this form of sedation, such as those who suffer from TMJ, and people who find it difficult to keep their mouths open for extended periods of time.
