What Sedation Dentistry Options Does Dentist Of West Covina Offer?

Since every patient is different, we offer a variety of sedation options to meet every patient's needs. We work with you personally to determine which choice is best for you and expertly administer the proper choice prior to your procedure.

We offer:

Oral Sedation

Oral sedation is in the form of a pill that patients take prior to the procedure. The treatment causes patients to become drowsy, but does not put you to sleep. It allows for relaxation while remaining conscious.

General Anesthesia

General anesthesia is administered through an IV or breathing mask. This form of sedation induces complete unconsciousness. This form is usually reserved for more intensive dental procedures.

Nitrous Oxide

The third option we offer is nitrous oxide, commonly referred to as laughing gas. This commonly used gas allows patients of all ages to relax fully and remain calm while still remaining conscious. You will breathe in this sedation option via a mask placed over your nose. This choice wears off shortly after your procedure ends.

What Does Sedation Dentistry Cost?

The cost for sedation dentistry varies, depending on a few conditions.

  • Age of patients
  • Type of procedure
  • Personal considerations
  • Type of sedation required

The time it takes for sedation to wear off depends on a few factors, including the type of sedation you receive, the type of treatment you receive, and your own body's personal recovery time.

Will I Need Someone To Drive Me Home?

Because sedation causes drowsiness, it is important to have someone else drive you home after your appointment.
