Sedation Dentistry

Many people avoid seeing a dentist because of their fears and anxiety, which prevents them from receiving dental work they may desperately need. Our experienced staff at both locations in North Hollywood and Monterey Park use sedation dentistry to ease your anxieties and fears so we can help you maintain good oral health.

At Pacific Dental Group, we take into consideration each patient’s level of anxiety and the work being performed to determine the type of sedation they may need. We offer:

  1. Oral Sedation: Oral sedation makes you comfortable and relaxed during your treatment. As the name implies, it is taken orally when you arrive at the office before your procedure. You are awake and capable of responding to the doctor. Some patients are so relaxed they end up sleeping during the treatment.
  2. Intravenous Anesthesia: IV sedation allows the patients with extreme anxiety or in need of extensive work, to sleep during the entire procedure, with no memory of the treatment.
  3. Laughing Gas is combined with oxygen to make you comfortable. You’ll feel a tingling sensation throughout your body. Patients love the relaxing and comfortable feeling. At the end of the treatment, the patient receives more oxygen to transition from the gas.
  4. Local anesthesia is a simple numbing of a section in your mouth. The dentist will inject a local anesthetic called Lidocaine. Most patients don't even feel the pinch of the injection but rather feel the anesthetic traveling into the soft tissue of the mouth. The anesthetic lasts for a few hours after your treatment, so eating and speaking can be a challenge, but once it wears off, there are virtually no side effects.

With the different types of sedation available to help with your anxiety, there’s no excuse for not setting up an appointment with our office. Call our Pacific Dental Group office at North Hollywood (818) 617-2001 or our office located in Monterey Park at (323) 618-1332.

Our Happy Patients

"I am thrilled to have found such a great dentist in Los Angeles. Several people at my work use this dental practice and highly recommended it. When I relocated here a few months ago I knew that I would be needing a crown on one of my lower back teeth and I was putting it off because that part of the jaw is so sensitive. Dr. Garcia was amazing and had such a precise and gentle touch that I hardly notice I was getting a shot. I love the friendly staff and feel safe and welcome each time I visit. The free teeth whitening club is a great client goodwill gift and I'm proudly showing off my pearly white chompers!"

Excellent service and reasonable prices, and cleans establishment, very professional but friendly as well."

"It's weird to say I loved getting the screws put to my teeth, but as far as dentists go, these guys are some of the best I've ever been to. Friendly staff as well. I recommend going to them if you're in the area and looking for some dental health care goodness."
