Sedation Dentistry

Our team is comforting and supportive during every type of treatment, ranging from preventative care to cosmetic improvements. Regardless of what brings you in, you’ll have a more relaxing dental experience with sedation dentistry.

Benefits of Sedation

There are many benefits that dental sedation dentistry offers. Not only is it great for pain relief, but it can also help take the edge off your anxiety. Here are common ways our patients have previously benefitted from sedatives:

Conquering dentophobia

Stifling overactive gag reflex

Granted the ability to sit through lengthy procedures

Quicker to feel the effect of local anesthesia

Can string multiple procedures together at once

If any of these would help you deal with dentist visits, ask our team about sedation. We believe you deserve access to comfortable treatments that make your procedure easier and less worrisome for you.

Nitrous Oxide

Nitrous oxide, discovered as a sedative on accident in the 1800s, is an inhalable sedative that doctors have administered since its creation. Nitrous oxide, while mild, is very effective. Also known as laughing gas, you’ll wear a mask covering your nose and mouth and inhale deeply. The effects will hit you right away.

Oral Sedation

Oral sedatives are more potent than laughing gas but are still a safe and moderate option. These are taken an hour before the appointment, and by the time you arrive, you’ll be in a state of euphoria, ready for your appointment. Warning, you will need transportation assistance regardless of the chosen method.

Set an Appointment

Our goal is to allow everyone to receive the medical care they require. We find it a shame that anxiety, fear of pain, or restlessness prevents regular checkups. During your next appointment, as us how sedatives can benefit you.
