Dentists have worked long and hard to diminish or eliminate patient pain.  Anxious and even phobic patients often discover that sedation dentistry can offer the perfect, relaxing solution for maintaining good dental health.  In one study, 90% of the patients who experienced fearfulness about dentistry felt more comfortable with sedation… and you are no different.  We can make your next visit a lot more comfortable.  And of course, prior to administering any anesthesia, we’ll discuss your needs, your medical history and your current health with you.

Nitrous Oxide, commonly referred to as laughing gas, is an effective anesthetic with many benefits.

Oral sedation (pills) are used for many of our patients who are needle-phobic.

An IV sedation is administered directly into the bloodstream.  Patients remain conscious and are able to understand and respond to requests from your dental team.  Our dental team has been specially trained in IV sedation.

Dental sedation is a safe and effective way to reduce the stress and anxiety associated with your dental appointment.  If you’re apprehensive about dental visits, the first step is to call.  We will work with you to eliminate this barrier to better oral health.

Benefits of sedation dentistry include: elimination of fear, reduction of anxiety, increased comfort levels, heightened relaxation and increased the sense of control.
