Many patients are anxious about visiting the dentist, to the point that some avoid making appointments for years. In order to ensure a comfortable experience, Dr. Rohinton Patel and his team at Hawaii Pacific Dental Group offer a wide range of sedation dentistry options, from laughing gas to IV sedation. We are one of the first practices in the state to have an anesthesiologist in the office to monitor sedation use during surgical procedures.
Often, patients have phobias or fears of getting dental work done and they've avoided coming to the dentist for many, many years. Unfortunately, dental disease can build up over the years and cause patients great pain and discomfort, thereby decreasing their quality of life. At Hawaii Pacific Dental Group, we offer a wide set of sedation procedures for today's dental patient, be it a light amount of sedation through something called nitrous oxide, or laughing gas, all the way to the point of IV sedation with our anesthesiologist. Our practice was amongst the first in Hawaii to use a board-certified anesthesiologist to exclusively administer the sedation. It's the highest level of quality control and customer patient safety.
