Sedation Dentistry in Los Angeles

Are you frightened to see the dentist? Have you found yourself picking up the phone to make a dental appointment and then hanging up before you talk to anyone? Have you made dental appointments and then cancelled them or just not shown up? Are you always looking for a dentist but never seem to go see a dentist? If so, you are like millions of Americans who suffer from dental anxiety.

Whether you are receiving a root canal, having a dental crown placed, or getting a cavity filled, one of the most requested services from our Downtown Dental patients is sedation. Sedation dentist Dr. Mungcal in Los Angeles is happy to provide this valuable treatment.
Patients who visit sedation dentist Dr. Mungcal of Downtown Dental in Los Angeles can improve their dental treatments with the use of sedation services tailored to their needs:
  • Oral conscious sedation | Oral conscious sedation involves taking a prescription medication before your dental visit. Because sedatives can cause you to feel woozy, it is important that you arrange transportation to and from our office with a trusted friend or family member. With this form of sedation, you remain alert throughout your treatment. However, you do not feel anxious or fearful. In fact, most people who receive sedation do not remember their dental treatment at all.
  • IV sedation | IV sedation involves the delivery of sedative medication directly into a vein. It is the deepest form of relaxation, and may cause you to doze off lightly while we perform restorative or cosmetic treatment on your smile. We are committed to safety as well as comfort. Sedated patients are monitored closely to ensure that we achieve each of these goals.
Dental sedation is offered at Downtown Dental in Los Angeles for patients who experience anxiety and fear when it comes to visiting their dentist. These fears can keep patients from getting much-needed dental work completed, or from having the routine recommended checkups and cleanings that can keep their smiles healthy and beautiful. This can affect the individual’s oral health care when it is not regularly addressed by a professional. Sedation is also beneficial for patients who would like to complete several procedures in a single visit.
Sedation dentistry administered by a Sedation Dentist allows you to relax and have a pleasurable experience at the dentist, instead of one based on fear and anxiety.
Dental sedation can be used for anything from teeth cleanings to multiple procedures, such as dental veneers, root canals, or extensive cosmetic work. Sedation dentistry can also save you money and time as it can help you avoid having to make multiple visits to the dentist. You will be able to have everything completed in one visit–on one bill.
