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.

Best care I have ever had…

Dr Kim, I need to let you know that I have moved back to Colorado and will no longer be a patient of yours. You and your staff gave me the best care I have ever had of my teeth and I will miss that excellent care. Please thank your wife, Helen, Maria and all the staff for me. My mouth is healthier than it was when I arrived in Virginia. I have wanted to go back to Colorado for several years and finally it made sense for my finances and my health. Thank you,

Alice S.
