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 Montebello 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 818-356-4736 or our office located in Montebello at 323-725-6797.

"Love love love my new dentist and staff! These guys are awesome from the front desk to making me feel relaxed about all the stuff my mouth needed. I was so chicken and now I can't see myself going to any other dentist! High five to my hygienist Danny who was super gentle and thorough with my deep cleaning of my teeth!!! Thank you guys for the awesome experience with all my visits. See your guys soon."

"Great Dentist, Great Staff. At 57 years-old, I've had several root canals, crowns, bridges, fillings, and extractions from many dentists, some who even advertise on radio. Having tooth-pain and not willing to wait 3 weeks for my regular dentist, I went to Dr. Julius in Montebello. I got an appointment the next day and two days later had major dental work on several of my teeth. (I just got home.) I had work done by Dr. Julius and 2 other dental specialists, also dealing with 2 other people of the excellent office staff there. Dentistry is both a preffession and a busines. Or is going to a restaurant only about the chef, and not the service? They didn't serve me food. They took care of my sh*t. Each and every one of them, all seeking the same outcome: to help me. Dr. Julius could advertise on radio, with higher prices. Maybe even on TV. I watched the finals of 'America's Got Talent' last night. Unfortunately, there were no dental offices on display. When it comes to dentistry and my teeth, I know talent. I watched the winners today."

"After looking for a new dentist. I settle for PDG as was greeted very nicely and the front receptionist was very sweet. The dentist & his asst. were very pleasant. I'll be staying for all my future dental visits and I can't wait to see how my new smile turns out. I really recommend this place to anybody who is a first time patients. 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."

"High Quality, Professional, Trustworthy. Going to the dentist usually makes people nervous, but the atmosphere here is so lighthearted and relaxing. You're definitely in good hands and won't have to worry about anything. Dr. Julius is very interactive, kind, and mindful of your comfort level at all times and it's so relieving to know that she knows what she's doing. My best dental experience by far :)"
