Find the Perfect Solution for You
Sedation dentistry has helped countless people manage dental anxiety and fear. Sedation blocks pain. It prevents you from gagging, and it helps you remain calm through dental cleanings and exams and during more complex procedures.
Your choices include:
- Inhaled Sedation – You probably know this better as “laughing gas.” It is administered through a small mask, and the gas gives people a feeling of mild euphoria. This is our mildest form of sedation. It’s also safe for kids.
- Pre-Op Sedative – If you are nervous about having oral surgery or other procedures, you will be given a pill right before your treatment to relax you.
- Oral Sedation – This yields a similar, but stronger, relaxant effect than a pre-op sedative. You will take the pill at home before coming to our office for your appointment.
Our experienced staff safely administers the sedation method of your choice, and you are closely monitored throughout your procedure. We will discuss each method with you to ensure you make an informed decision. You will receive thorough instructions on how the process works. With some methods, for example, you will need to arrange for a ride home as you’ll be unable to drive.
Stay Calm & Comfortable
In addition to sedation, our caring staff can deliver local anesthetic to numb your mouth as well. Many patients also appreciate the mental benefits of our comfort options, such as cozy blankets and TV, so you can feel more comfortable during your visits with us.
