Oral Conscious Sedation / Nitrous Oxide Inhalation Sedation
At ASK Dental Group, we thrive on providing our patients with a calm and relaxing environment. We offer Inhalation Sedation also known as Laughing Gas (Nitrous Oxide) in our office to patients who might be a little nervous about their dental visit.
Dr. Khou and our team at ASK Dental Group understand that for some patients, a dental visit can be a nerve wracking experience. To accommodate these specific patients, Dr. Khou has completed the state required courses and has obtained a special permit from the California State Dental Board, to offer his patients Oral Conscious Sedation.
Oral Conscious Sedation dentistry refers to medications, which only permitted dentists can utilize in their practice to treat dental phobias.

Within the past decade or so, sedation dentistry has been a growing part of the dental industry. It is important to note that it is a regulated side of dentistry. In California, not all dentists are allowed to do sedation. At ASK Dental Group, Dr. Ardy is a registered and permitted dentist by the California Dental Board to administer Sedation Medication to his patients.
Sedation is normally used for younger children who are extremely nervous about their dental visit or treatment. However at times, even adults are in need of sedation. At ASK Dental Group, your West Los Angeles Dental office located in Westwood Village right by UCLA, Dr. Ardy is able and permitted to use Oral Conscious Sedation on both Minors and Adults.
Fear of the dentist is a reality. There are patient who neglect dental work because of their fear and we go the extra mile to make sure all of patients from minors to adults feel comfortable with all of their visits.
California Dental Board has set forth regulations and rules that each dentist must follow in order to safely administer oral sedation. Dr. Ardeshir Khou, our sedation certified dentist will closely go over the options, needs and medical history with each patient.
At ASK Dental Group , your West Los Angeles / Westwood Village / Close to UCLA Dental office , we also offer Nitrous Oxide Sedation (Laughing Gas) to calm the nerves of the patients who need extra comfort in the dental office.
Dr. Ardy has extensive training and experience using Nitrous Oxide and Sedative medications in the dental office setting.
Under Nitrous Oxide (Laughing Gas) Sedation, you will still be awake, able to respond and breath on your own. You will ultimately feel at ease and comfortable. Once the nose mask is removed, the effects of nitrous oxide go away.
At ASK Dental Group, we also cater to the medically compromised/ disable dental patients. We are capable of contracting a Dentist Anesthesiologist for IV sedation or even General Anesthesia in the dental office or in a hospital setting for the medically compromised patients.
For the medically compromised patients it is mandatory to get a clearance from the treating MD physician before any sedation medication is administered.
