    La Mesa, CA general and cosmetic dentist, Dr. Richard Evans, is helping child and adult patients overcome their fear or anxiety of dental visits with customized sedation and anti-anxiety treatments. With sedation dentistry, patients are able to enjoy a comfortable and relaxed visit to the dentist where they can receive treatments that will make vital improvements to their oral health.

    Surveys show that about 15 percent of all American suffer from some extent of fear or anxiety about visiting the dentist. Additionally, about 1 in 4 of all scheduled appointments is cancelled because patients are too fearful about upcoming procedures to actually go through with them. With the sedation dentistry that Dr. Evans offers at Summit Dental of La Mesa, patients no longer need to have this concern.

    “Dental phobia is a real issue for many of our patients, and our staff is committed to doing everything possible to help our patients feel comfortable in our chairs,” said Dr. Richard Evans. “Because of the sedation dentistry we offer, we now have patients coming to visit us that have not seen a dentist in years because of their phobia. This is a monumental step and an important one for their oral health so we can get it back to its healthiest state.”

    Reviews of Dr. Richard Evans and the sedation services he offers in La Mesa, CA have been outstanding. Patients report that Dr. Evans’ office is the only place they have felt comfortable during dental visits, and that they felt virtually no pain during their dental visits. Dr. Evans and his staff offer a variety of sedation services for patients, and he customizes each service depending on the unique needs of each patient.

    Patients with mild anxiety can take advantage of nitrous oxide treatment. Nitrous oxide is a non-irritating, sweet-smelling gas that is administered through the nose during treatment. It induces mild sedation, allowing patients to feel more relaxed or even fall asleep during treatment. Nitrous oxide does not have any lasting side-effects after treatment and is safe for the heart and lungs.

    For patients who require more sedation for their dental anxiety, Dr. Evans also offers oral sedation and intravenous sedation services. Oral sedation is administered simply through a pill that the patient takes prior to their appointment, allowing them to be less aware of sights, smells, and sounds during their treatment. Intravenous sedation results in a very relaxed state, with most patients drifting in and out of sleep during treatment.

    Dr. Evans and his staff at Summit Dental of La Mesa have recently received top outstanding reviews on third party review sites for their excellence in patient comfort, which is partially due to their comprehensive offering of sedation and anti-anxiety treatments at their practice.
