Sedation Dentistry

We now offer a way to have an anxiety free visit to the dentist

Don't let fear or anxiety get in the way of keeping your smile healthy!

Many people fear going to the dentist and may have a fear of needles, or had a past traumatic experience at the dentists office.

You are not alone!

Even if you have anxiety or fear of any pain associated with some of the procedures done at dental offices or even sounds of dental equipment, we can make your visit to our office pain free and stress free with sedation dentistry techniques.

What is Sedation Dentistry?

Sedation dentistry is a way of using specific methods of sedation to lessen the anxiety and fear while going to the dentist.

It is administered by a sedation specialist by using nitrous oxide sedation or “laughing gas” as it is commonly referred to.

This is the most common type of sedation dentistry and a very safe method of conscious sedation.

You will be awake and aware of your surroundings but completely relaxed.

The nitrous oxide is administered through a mask and by breathing in oxygen mixed with nitrous oxide.

Our Sedation Specialist will control the amount given to you so you do not loose conciousness.

Benefits of Sedation Dentistry

Sedation dentistry offers patients an option to use controlled sedation to lessen the anxiety while going through dental procedures.

Our Sedation Specialists may suggest sedation dentistry if you:

  • Have highly sensitive or painful teeth
  • Have fear or anxiety about going to the dentist
  • Have a fear of needles
  • Have a sensitive gag reflex
  • Have difficulty sitting still for long periods of time
  • Have neck, back or shoulder pain
  • Have trouble relaxing through dental procedures
  • Will be needing several procedures in a single visit

If you are struggling with any of these issues, please contact us.

We aim to make your appointment anxiety-free!
