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 and his staff
This was my first time receiving dental work from this practice and I highly recommend Dr. Kim and his staff, as they are unmatched in their professional approach and friendly demeanor. I chose to get my wisdom teeth out with Dr. Kim after getting X-rays and having a brief consultation to ensure everyone was in agreement on the plan. I have never had oral surgery before, and was expecting to be in excruciating pain after the pain medication wore off, as I had witnessed with countless friends and my own siblings. However, to my surprise, I had very little swelling and the pain was easily managed with otc medicine during the first few days after the procedure. Dr. Kim utilizes the latest technology and innovative methods to ensure a quicker and more pain-free healing, which he informed me of beforehand. Throughout the entire process, Dr. Kim and his kind staff’s greatest concern is the patient, demonstrated through transparent communication and great attention devoted to your personal comfort. I was even given a blanket so I wouldn’t be cold while the procedure was taking place. I will definitely be returning for future treatments and will be recommending this practice to my friends and family in the area.
