Sedation Dentistry


Billions of people all over the planet suffer from some form of dental fear, dental anxiety, or dental phobia. Whether it’s from a past dental experience or horror stories from the family, some people have a tough time making a dental appointment, and if they do, they often cancel at the last minute out of dental fear.

Sedation Dentistry for Dental Fear

Sedation dentistry is an excellent way to help patients deal with problems such as fear of needles, sensitive teeth, and anxiety. People who have a problem with needles and are paranoid of pain also benefit from sedation dentistry.

Dr. Greenman is one of the few dentists in California to have completed the 100 hours of training and in-office examination necessary to be awarded a Conscious Sedation Permit.

Dr. Greenman is the premiere sedation dentist in Westlake Village and offers IV sedation dentistry for all levels of dental anxiety.

If you experience any of the following, sedation dentistry could be for you:

Excessive appointments
Excessive procedures during the same dental appointment
Fear of pain
Feeling like you have no control of the situation
Complex dental procedures

Dental Fear Only Makes Things Worse

Sadly, tooth decay and gum disease will not get better. In fact, they only get worse. It is ironic that people who suffer from dental fear wait so long to see the dentist that the procedures become more invasive. A simple dental filling could turn into a root canal while gum disease may require scaling and root planing. Avoiding dental appointments could even result in tooth loss.

Don’t let stress keep you out of the dentist’s chair as it only makes things worse. Call and schedule a consultation with Dr. Greenman to find out which type of sedation dentistry is best for you.

Dear Patients,

I have made the decision to step back from my work as a clinical dentist due to past injuries. However, I will still be practicing dental sleep medicine downstairs in Suite 131 with Dr. Dave Kacker. He has been personally selected by me and is an excellent dentist, renowned for his skills in cosmetic dentistry. Your appointments and care will continue seamlessly with Dr. Kacker and our merged team. Thank you for your understanding and continued support.

Steven C. Greenman, D.D.S.
