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.

Patients of Dr. Sonny Kim for over 20 years

My family and I have been patients of Dr. Sonny Kim for over 20 years. The practice is clean, well managed, and professional. I have trusted Dr. Kim with the dental needs of my entire family, including my two young children, and elderly mother. We have always been extremely satisfied with the services offered, as well as the ease of scheduling, and personalized attention given by Dr. Kim. We have always found Dr. Kim to go above and beyond the call of duty to ensure that our entire family’s dental health is utmost priority. We would never consider seeing any other practitioner for our dental needs so long as Dr. Kim is still in practice. His office is truly top-notch, and he is an exemplary individual in his profession!
