Sedation Dentistry

 


 

ANESTHESIA OPTIONS

 

Fewer than 50 percent of all people in the United States see a dentist regularly. Putting off dental care only makes the situation worse ? and more expensive to fix. While some people are just too busy for multiple dental appointments, most people who avoid the dentist do so out of fear. But now a new option is available to help fearful patients overcome their anxiety ? 'Sleep dentistry'.

 

 

Dr. Jin Kim believes all his patients should have the option of being in as relaxed a state as possible while undergoing their dental procedures. That is why he utilizes many modern modalities of anesthesia, including:

 

  1. Local anesthesia

  2. Oral sedation

  3. Conscious sedation (also known as IV sedation)

  4. General anesthesia

 

 

Conscious sedation dentistry allows Dr. Kim to perform the work you need while you relax. He can accomplish in one visit what might have otherwise taken several appointments. Gum treatments, implants, smile restorations, and more can be accomplished while you relax comfortably.

 

 

Dental Sedation techniques include nitrous oxide (laughing gas), oral conscious sedation, and intravenous sedation. With oral conscious sedation, the patient takes a small pill before an appointment, which produces a delightful feeling of relaxation and little or no memory of the procedure. Most procedures performed by Dr. Kim are done under intravenous conscious sedation. Intravenous sedation is anesthesia administered through a vein during your visit to ensure your comfort and maximum relaxation. For patients with special needs or those requiring lengthy visits, we have a board-certified physician M.D. anesthesiologist on staff, as well as specialist dentist-anesthesiologists providing intravenous sedation or general anesthesia.
