SEDATION OPTIONS | LOS ANGELES, CA
Sedation Dentistry Options at CCIND
Some people are fearful of dental procedures, even to the point of avoiding any dental care or procedures. If you are one of those people, you should understand that you are not alone and there are helpful options that we at CCIND offer to make your experience less stressful.
We want to ensure that your dental procedure is as comfortable as possible, so we offer the following types of sedation.
With minimal sedation using nitrous oxide, you will be awake, but relaxed. With this type of dental sedation, you have the added benefit of being able to drive yourself home after your appointment.
Moderate sedation is also called “conscious sedation”
and is the most common type of sedation. This type of sedation usually uses an oral medication. The medication is usually administered about an hour before the start of the procedure.
IV sedation is also used for moderate sedation. This entails a sedative administered through a vein, making it faster than oral sedation. With this method, the dentist can continually adjust the level as needed.
During moderate sedation, patients are in a state of extreme relaxation; however, they will still be awake and able to respond to instructions if necessary.
With deep sedation, you will be give medication that will render you almost or completely unconscious for the procedure.
No matter which type of sedation you receive, you will also likely need a local anesthetic to further reduce any pain the procedure may cause.
Benefits of Sedation
Dental sedation offers many benefits for both the patient and the dentist, including:
- Increased comfort
- Patient relaxation
- Little to no memory of treatment
- Time saving, as fewer appointments may be needed
At CCIND, we will discuss our sedation procedures with you to make sure you are as comfortable as possible.

This is a great dental office. They greet you when you enter, and give you a status report on how soon you will be seen. They do thorough and professional work on you, so you are always satisfied with the results. And when you are finished, they are generous with their time planning your next visit, and answering any questions you might have. They also give fantastic advice on what you should be doing at home to maintain great dental health.

The costs are incredibly high, even with insurance. I would not go back and not refer anyone. I am going to try to be placed with a different primary care dentist.

He is very patient and kind when dealing with TMD. I also like his techniques he uses to get to the root of the issue and not just patch it up like many dentists I have dealt with before.
