Oral Sedation


"Nothing against you doc, but I don't like dentists"


oral001This one of Dr Uchida’s favorite lines that he frequently hears from new patients. Does the thought of dental treatment make you anxious? Are you a dental-phobic person?

For many Americans going to the dentist is a frightful event, even though dentistry has changed so much in the past years. A visit to the dentist can now be relaxing and not eventful.

Unfortunately, this is not enough for the approximately 145 million people who avoid the dentist due to fear. Is this you? Dr Uchida and his caring team have completed special training that allows them to treat patients while they are safely sedated.

Using a small pill, people can now have their dental care accomplished while they're totally relaxed and absolutely comfortable. Extensive procedures seem to go by faster and patients do not remember it the next day. Not remembering their dental treatment is a big plus for some people. Oral sedation also keeps a person in healing mode (parasympathetic mode) longer immediately after surgery. Oral sedation is one of the most effective techniques we have ever incoorporated into our practice.

We have successfully treated many patients with dental anxiety and are looking forward to asking you questions about your experiences.


We have used oral sedation safely in our office on a daily basis since the year 2002.
