Are you in need of dental work, but the thought of seeing a dentist makes your heart race?
Dental fear stops many people from getting routine cleanings and necessary dental care—but there is a solution.
Our dentists at Cosmetic & Implant Dentistry Center in Los Algodones, Mexico, provide sedation dentistry to help you relax.
Virtual Consultations Are Available
You don't have to go to Los Algodones, Mexico, to learn about your options. We respect your time, which is why we offer virtual consultations for procedures that can be paired with sedation dentistry. If you feel comfortable with our team, then we can schedule your appointment.
Dental Phobia Is More Common Than You Think
* According to the National Institutes of Health.
Many patients put off important dental treatment due to a fear of the dentist. Postponing dental cleanings or treatments puts you at risk of developing more serious oral health concerns like tooth decay and tooth loss. Unfortunately, these concerns can even affect your overall health. In addition to offering sedation dentistry, Dr. Jose Valenzuela uses gentle techniques to put even the most anxious patients at ease.
Intravenous (IV) Sedation Relieves Your Dental Anxiety
Our Los Algodones, Mexico, practice offers IV sedation that is delivered directly to the bloodstream. The effects of this medication put you in a state of deep relaxation that leaves you with little or no memory of the procedure. This can ensure a pleasant experience for even the most stressed or nervous patients. Unlike nitrous oxide, which wears off quickly, the effects of IV sedation take longer to subside, so you will need someone to drive you to and from your appointment.
Sedation Dentistry Makes Seeing the Dentist a Breeze
IV sedation allows our patients to undergo their procedures in excellent comfort. It is often combined with a local anesthetic so no pain can be felt during the procedure.
IV sedation can:
Patients who suffer from dental anxiety can greatly benefit from sedation dentistry. IV sedation helps you to feel relaxed and comfortable throughout your entire procedure.
Fidgeting during your procedure is uncomfortable, and it can also make the dental treatment take longer. Sedation will relax you so that you will not feel the need to move during your dental care, which will reduce your overall chair time.
A sensitive gag reflex makes dental work difficult and uncomfortable. IV sedation relaxes you and reduces your gag reflex to make your dental procedure more efficient and comfortable.
Prevent Severe Conditions and Save Money
Neglecting treatment only makes oral health issues worse with time and can lead to tooth loss, advanced decay, and periodontal disease. Patients are able to get the oral care they need through sedation dentistry, often long before the problem can become more serious and expensive to treat.
Don't Let Anxiety Win Request a Consultation
If you get anxious about dental procedures or dread sitting still in the dentist's chair for an extended period, IV sedation can help you relax and let Dr. Valenzuela comfortably work on your smile.

FAQs About Sedation Dentistry At Our Los Algodones Practice
Q. Why don't you offer nitrous oxide?
A. We prefer to use IV sedation and local anesthesia over nitrous oxide. IV sedation can lull patients into sleep or prevent memory formation, which is excellent for those with debilitating anxiety or those who struggle with repetitive movement. Nitrous oxide, on the other hand, is a less powerful sedation option.
Q. Do you follow the same standards as American doctors?
A. Yes, we do — and at a more affordable price. Our dentist, Dr. Valenzuela, completed his training in the USA and earned membership in the American Dental Association, the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, and the American Academy of Implant Dentistry. Plus, we always have a nurse and anesthesiologist present during your sedation appointment for safe monitoring.
Q. How can I pay for my sedation dentistry treatment?
A. You are welcome to pay with cash or card. Insurance doesn't usually cover sedation, but it may cover the cost of treatment itself, if it's medically necessary. Even if it doesn't, dentistry treatment in Mexico is significantly cheaper than care in America. We're only 20 minutes from the border, making the trip convenient and stress-free. Finally, to make care more accessible, we accept dental financing from Citerra Finance.
