Sedation Dentistry

We fully understand that many people are anxious about visiting the dentist. Since we don’t want fear to hold you back from getting the dental care you need, we offer sedation dentistry to improve your experience. Sedation dentistry allows you to relax while we perform a dental treatment. At the same time, you will remain conscious and aware of your surroundings. Instead of avoiding dental procedures, ask us about sedation dentistry.

Oral Conscious Sedation

With oral conscious sedation, your anxiety will decrease and you’ll feel comfortable during your dental treatment. Rest assured, you will stay conscious throughout the procedure. With this type of sedation, we provide medication that relaxes your body and mind. If you undergo this type of sedation procedure, we ask that you have someone else drive you on the day of your treatment. Nonetheless, the effects of the sedation do not linger, so you will feel alert and back to your normal state again soon after treatment.

Nitrous Oxide

We are proud to offer nitrous oxide– often referred to as laughing gas– as a sedation option. This type of sedation also helps you relax if you are nervous about a procedure or a regular visit to the dentist. For the most part, people can drive themselves after recovering from having nitrous oxide gas.

Sedation dentistry is separate from medication that you might receive for pain. While sedation dentistry will help you relax, you might also receive a local anesthetic or general anesthesia for certain dental procedures. If the idea of sedation or pain medication makes you nervous, please do not hesitate to express your concerns with your dentist.
