Why Choose Us
Is ANXIETY overwhelming you or your patient?
Many patients neglect dental treatment due to fear. These fears often are a result of past experiences in which the patient was traumatized in the dental chair, often as a child. The result can frequently be a lifetime of neglect, embarrassment, or severe anxiety revolving around dental treatment and health.
We can help
At East County Endodontics, Dr. Hornberger and his team have trained extensively to offer a form of oral conscious sedation specifically designed for patients in need of endodontic treatment. This allows the patient to be completely relaxed during their root canal treatment, with healthy results and little recollection of the procedure itself. Most cases are treated within one hour.
If you're a patient in need of root canal treatment and are fearful, please inquire about sedation options with East County Endodontics. You’ll never want to go anywhere else after your experience!

What our Conscious Sedation patients say...
“Dr. Hornberger was so compassionate and seemed to truly understand my fears! I was so relaxed under the sedation, and it was so simple. I could not believe it was so easy, and best of all my tears were now out of joy!”
“I have had some bad dental experiences over the years. My dentist told me I needed a root canal on my tooth in order to save it. He referred me to Dr. Hornberger for the root canal, and after talking with him I decided to have the procedure under sedation…that was the best thing I’ve ever done for myself! Dr. Hornberger was incredible, and so was his team. Next time I need a root canal, I know where to go”.
“I never knew a root canal could be so easy. I went to Dr. Hornberger for my root canal and requested sedation because I was so scared. He took great care of me, so quick, and no pain. I am telling all my friends to have Dr. Hornberger do their root canals with sedation if they are scared”.
