The key to solving dental anxiety lies in the approach to treatment. By using IV sedation, our patients are able to relax throughout the course of their procedures. This technique is indicated for patients who suffer from dental phobia and anxiety, as well as those who are undergoing extensive treatments.

Lenny was extremely fearful of the dentist and suffered with advanced periodontal disease. All of his teeth were loose and he knew his periodontal disease was directly linked to heart disease, but he kept it secret so he wouldn't have to address the problem. His wife encouraged him to finally go to the dentist, so he researched online and found Dr. Ajmo. Watch the video above to learn more.

With just a few prescribed sedative pills before your appointment, you can relax and overcome your fear of the dentist. Oral conscious sedation is a safe and effective way to keep you awake and calm during dental treatments. If you have a sensitive gag reflex, are afraid of anesthetic needles or pain caused by dental work, oral conscious sedation can help. Dr. Ajmo will prescribe you one or two pills and instruct you to take them about an hour before your appointment. In some cases, he may even suggest you take a pill the night before to bring on a restful night before treatment. You will need a ride to and from your appointment to ensure your safety, but a short nap after your appointment will leave you feeling rested and alert.

IV Sedation

If you need a more effective sedation method to help ease the anxiety caused by dental phobia, IV sedation may be your best option. IV sedation can only be administered by a Board-Certified sedation expert like Dr. Ajmo and produces incredibly effective results. Designed for those who suffer from moderate to severe dental anxiety, IV sedation will leave you with no memory of the treatment, is very safe, and allows you to reverse years of neglect in very few visits. Dr. Ajmo administers the sedative intravenously, and you will feel the effects immediately. Easily adjusted and meticulously monitored, IV sedation is dependable, efficient, and very safe.

Local Anesthesia

Local anesthetics will be administered to anesthetize or "numb" your teeth and mouth after you are sedated. This sequence of sedation before local anesthetic prevents you from experiencing the fear often related to injections or needles.

The Benefits

One of the many benefits of sedation dentistry is that it allows our Palm Beach Gardens team to perform more than one treatment at a time, in what feels like minutes to the sedated patient. Years of damage and decay, often ignored due to anxiety can be reversed quickly and with minimal downtime. Dr. Ajmo has years of experience administering sedation and will remain attentive to your needs throughout the treatment. During treatment, Dr. Ajmo and his team will consistently monitor your vital signs to make sure you are safe and comfortable.


If you suffer from dental anxiety and are ready to make your health a priority, you may be a candidate for sedation dentistry. Your initial consultation at PGA Dentistry will help us determine if sedation is right for you, so don't wait to schedule an appointment with us.
