Sleep Sedation Dentistry for Anxious Patients

Are you scared of the dentist? Does fear of pain, fear of needles, a sensitive gag-reflex, or claustrophobia prevent you from getting critical dental treatments? Have bad experiences caused you to neglect your oral health?

We understand if your dental experiences have been difficult. Whether you’ve had one terrible experience, or lots of mediocre ones—we want to make your dental appointments a stress- and worry-free experience, from here onwards.

We feel strongly that everyone should be able to enjoy the benefits of quality dental care without fear, guilt, or discomfort. Sedation dentistry lets you skip the “bad parts” of your dental appointments and wake up feeling great about your smile.

Other dentists may claim to take excellent care of you, but if you’ve still had negative experiences, they didn’t deliver on those promises. Dr. Paul Chon is different because he treats the whole patient: your comfort always comes first. He understands how difficult it can be to seek treatment when you’ve had nothing but bad experiences, and his compassion will change the way you feel about going to the dentist.

What is Sleep Dentistry?

Going to dentist does not have to cause anxiety and distress, which are never good for your health. Sleep dentistry lets you remain unconscious throughout your appointments and feel more relaxed about getting necessary treatments.

  • Make dental procedures feel more comfortable and gentle, and get them finished faster.
  • Complete more treatments in one appointment.
  • Avoid discomfort caused by the gag-reflex, holding the jaw open, and laying still for long periods of time.
  • Conquer your fear of dental procedures.

We offer nitrous oxide and IV sedation to induce states of relaxation that deliver a calm and peaceful experience. Dr. Paul will help you select the right sedation option for you, based on extent of your treatment and level of relaxation you desire
