Sedation Dentistry

At Advanced Family Dentistry, we want you to be comfortable during your dental treatment, and offer sedation for patients with sensitive gag reflexes or overall anxiety. While most dental procedures do not require the patient to be under the influence of sedatives, some dental procedures or patients may require it.

Sedation can be administered in several ways including oral, IV and by use of nitrous oxide. We will take every care, with gentle treatment, to make sure you are relaxed and in control at all times.

All sedated patients are required to be accompanied, as the effect of sedatives may last for up to six hours or more. During this entire period, the patient should be under the watchful eye of their family member, friend or companion.

I highly recommend Dr Kim.

My family has been seeing Dr. Kim, and his staff since at least 2008. His staff is loyal and Helen, his wife is the office manager. They are friendly and welcoming at each visit. Helen and I have exchanged book recommendations and children’s stories over the years and I always enjoy seeing her even if I am dreading the dental procedure that awaits me. I highly recommend Dr Kim and his office for any dental needs. I have had many teeth replaced and several root canals. Dr. Kim prides himself in learning new technology and providing his patients with the continued benefits that advancing dentistry has to offer. He continues to enjoy learning in his chosen profession and is constantly moving his practice forward with the newest technologies. I have not only seen this but benefited over the years between procedures. My youngest son, Eric had his wisdom teeth removed by Dr. Kim. My oldest son had the procedure done by an oral surgeon at much greater cost and greater discomfort. Eric’s wisdom teeth were removed by Dr. Kim in the summer of 2015, and he presented less swelling and pain then my older son’s did four years prior.
