Sedation Dentistry

The Sedation Dentists at Newport Beach Dental Saved My Teeth

“You would not believe the state my mouth was in when I came to Newport Beach Dental. Having had several traumatic childhood experiences with the dentist, as an adult I simply refused to go! I had developed several cavities and an advanced case of gum disease due to my neglect and a few of my teeth were becoming loose. When the pain became so severe that eating was torturous, a friend recommended that I go see Dr. Alder because he was so gentle and the staff so caring. It still took me a week to work up the nerve to call but when I did they were so helpful and even walked me through their sedation options since I had such fear. The ladies in the front were so kind to me. I did not feel any pain and in fact do not actually remember the procedures due to the sedation. And the best thing was that I never felt judged for the state I had let my teeth get to. Everyone genuinely wanted to help me!”

No Need to Fear at this Newport Beach Dentist

From the moment you step in the door at Newport Beach Dental, it is our team‘s top priority to make sure each patient is calm, safe and comfortable during any dental procedures. For standard procedures such as fillings and crowns, we use local anesthesia. To keep you from feeling even the smallest pinch of the anesthesia needle, we thoroughly numb the injection site with a topical anesthetic. For more invasive procedures such as root canals or tooth extractions, more effective anesthesia or sedation may be required. We also understand that some people have a natural fear of dentistry for many various reasons. We want to make sure that fear-free dentistry is available to everyone, so we make sedation dentistry available for all procedures including routine cleanings upon request. Please give us a call at (949) 642-2300 or use our online contact form on the right hand side of the page and we will be happy to discuss your sedation options with you.

Preparing for your Newport Beach Dental Procedure with Oral Sedation

If you have chosen oral sedation for your dental appointment, you must arrange for someone, maybe a family member or friend, to drive you to and from our office to ensure your safety and the safety of others. With oral sedation, pills must be taken at home before your visit and you are not permitted to drive once you have taken the medication. The great news is that the calming effects begin before you ever reach our office. The sedative is designed to reduce anxiety and put you into an almost hypnotic state. This option is great for patients with dental phobias who do not want to have memory of their dental procedures or for those patients that would like to have several dental procedures performed in one visit.

IV Sedation Available from Your Newport Beach Dentist

For patients who need multiple tooth extractions or root canals or for our extremely phobic patients, we offer IV sedation. For your comfort and safety we bring in a local specialist to administer the IV sedation and keep careful watch over you as we perform your dental work. As the effects of the sedation can take about an hour to wear off, you will want to arrange to have a trusted friend or family member take you home afterwards.

Your Comfort Is Our Concern

When choosing a sedation dentist in Newport Beach we know you have several options. We consider your first appointment with our office an act of trust on your part and we take your comfort very seriously. When founding the practice over 15 ago, Dr. Flores made it a priority to establish a dental community with an inviting and comfortable atmosphere where patients could be sure they would be treated with the care and respect one would offer a member of their family. Today, we continue in this fine tradition and vow to treat you as if you were a member of our own family. We look forward to relieving your fears and restoring the health and beauty to your smile. Keep in mind that now you can even get to know our team and Dr. Alder before you make your first visit.
