Sedation Dentistry

A survey by American Association of Endodontists found that 80 percent of adult Americans fear dentists; more than half say this fear may keep them from seeing a dentist.  Approximately 5 to 10 percent of adult Americans are considered dental phobics - people so terrified of dental treatment that they avoid dental care at all cost.


Sedation dentistry is an excellent solution for those who suffer from dental anxiety.  A safe, simple way to ease your mind and breeze through your dental visit.  Sedation dentistry allows our patients from Irvine and throughout Orange County to undergo their dental treatment comfortably and anxiety free.  If you are interested in sedation dentistry, look no further than Dr. Michael J Chen at Canyon Dentistry.


Relax During Your Dental Treatment

Do you become anxious as soon as you step into a dental office?  Have you been putting off dental care you need - such as gum disease treatment, restorative dentistry or implant therapy -  because you fear the dentist?  If so, sedation dentistry will put your fears to rest.  Dr. Michael Chen offers sedation dentistry at our practice, located at the heart of Orange County, as a service for patients who seek dentistry the way it should be - relaxing and free from discomfort.

All of the procedures offered by Dr. Chen at Canyon Dentistry do not require general anesthesia.  Our philosophy is to avoid the risk associated with "going under" by administrating local anesthesia to eliminate pain in conjunction with oral sedatives to ease your mind.


Advantages of Sedation Dentistry

•Oral sedation is safe.  It requires no injections and carries little risk of overmedication.

•Oral sedation allows patients to comfortably receive treatment.  You will not feel groggy or nauseous after treatment, though you will need a companion to take you to and from the appointment.

•You can have extensive treatments accomplished in one visit.  Sedation dentistry is the perfect solution for patients who have avoided the dentist for years and need a full course of general, restorative, cosmetic or implant dentistry treatments that might normally require several visits.

•Sedation dentistry allows patients to relax.  This makes treatment easier for both you and your dentist.
