    You’ll enjoy added peace of mind knowing you’re under the care of an experienced sedation dentist. Dr. Charles Tozzer has been administering sedation for 40 years. He was selected by the state of California to ensure that other dental professionals are complying with sedation safety regulations, and he conducts training at the Herman Ostrow School of Dentistry of USC on sedation safety.

    Comfortable Dental Care

    We Offer Three Kinds of Sedation

    The degree of anxiety you feel at the dentist can vary greatly, depending on the treatment you’ll receive. You may feel only a little nervous about getting a dental crown but much more worried about a root canal. Yet many dentists offer only a single choice of sedation. To ensure you’re relaxed for any procedure, we offer three kinds of dental sedation:

    • Laughing Gas – This is our most flexible form of sedation, as we can easily adjust the amount received by different patients. You’ll relax almost immediately when you breathe it in through a mask worn over your nose. It wears off quickly too and won’t leave you groggy, so you can even drive yourself home.
    • Oral Sedation – We’ll prescribe a safe pill you’ll take before your appointment. You’ll arrive at our office already feeling calm and remain relaxed throughout your treatment.  You’ll feel less aware of your surroundings than with laughing gas, though you’ll remain alert enough to communicate with us. Since the effects linger, you’ll need a ride home.
    • IV Sedation – Administered intravenously, this is our strongest form of sedation. We recommend it for lengthy and/or complex procedures or for receiving multiple procedures in a single visit. You will likely remember little if anything about your treatment when it’s over.

    Our Caring Team Keeps You Calm Throughout Your Visit

    Whether or not you receive dental sedation, our welcoming atmosphere will help you feel relaxed. If English is your second language, simply communicating with our staff may stress you out. We have team members who can speak with you in Japanese, Thai, Laotian, or Tagalog!

    You can also:

    • Help yourself to a fresh-baked cookie (or just breathe in that wonderful smell)
    • Enjoy a complimentary coffee or other beverage
    • Use headphones to tune out the sounds of our office

    To find out more about your sedation options in Irvine or make an appointment, call us at 949-304-2897.

    Dr Tozzer is a superb dentist! The entire office is professional, well run and everyone is friendly & helpful. I have been going to Dr Tozzer’s for many years for a variety of dental issues. My biggest issue was FEAR of going to the dentist! Dr Tozzer is a wonderful dentist with a great sense of humor. Dental assistant Whitney, had been so skilled, patient and kind that have I actually shown up to all of my appointments and ... with little or no anxiety! I am grateful to have found Dr. Tozzer’s wonderful practice. I highly recommend to all!

    Common Questions About Family Dentistry

    What kinds of sedation are used for dentistry?

    We offer three kinds of sedation: laughing gas, oral sedatives, and IV sedation. They are administered in different ways and offer varying levels of relaxation. Dr. Tozzer will discuss the options with you so you can select the one that will work best for your anxiety level and the type of treatment you’ll be receiving.

    How long does dental sedation last?

    It varies, depending on the type of sedation you choose. Laughing gas, which is inhaled through a small mask, is administered continuously. It takes effect quickly and wears off fast. The effects of both oral sedation and IV sedation may linger up to a few hours after your procedure. IV sedation typically lasts a total of one to six hours, while oral sedation can last up to eight hours.

    Does sedation dentistry work for most patients?

    Over the years, we have found that at least one of our three sedation options will benefit any patient. If you’re nervous about your visit with us, you’ll have your choice of sedation options. We’ll discuss each one in detail, answer any questions you have about sedation, and help you decide on the method that’s right for you.

    Is dental sedation safe?

    Dr. Tozzer teaches about sedation safety at the Herman Ostrow School of Dentistry of USC and also works for the state of California to ensure that other dental professionals comply with sedation safety regulations. All three kinds of sedation available at our office have been safely used in dentistry for many years.
