As a world renowned periodontist, Dr. Jin Y. Kim offers the latest in sedation dentistry in Diamond Bar, CA to calm fears and put dental anxiety to rest. While some people may only need local anesthesia to relax during their dental or periodontal treatment, others may need oral or conscious sedation or general anesthesia.

The mental discomfort a person may experience when anticipating a dental procedure often varies depending on the type of treatment that must be performed. A person may even feel fearful at the thought of undergoing a routine cleaning or receiving a filling because of sensitive teeth or an aversion to needles. Some individuals may suffer from dental anxiety due to a traumatic incident that occurred in when receiving dental care early in life. This may even lead to a phobia, which often creates an extreme reaction such as a complete avoidance of dental attention, regardless of the pain or other consequences of refusing to seek treatment.
The best oral hygiene habits are unable to completely eliminate the buildup of plaque and subsequent tartar around the gum line, between the teeth and on the roots. This substance irritates the sensitive gum tissue and leads to infection that destroys the structures of the mouth. Scientists have discovered that oral bacteria are associated with health problems elsewhere in the body, too. They have been linked to heart problems, stroke and some forms of cancer, as well as other serious issues. Acknowledging the importance of dental exams, routine cleanings and other procedures, Dr. Kim provides sedation dentistry in Diamond Bar, CA, that allows patients with dental anxiety to receive the care they need without pain and discomfort.
