Sedation dentistry is used by our dentist to provide a relaxing and comfortable visit for a patient that experiences fears or phobias about dental treatments. This allows a patient to receive needed treatments without experiencing anxiety or discomfort.
Dental fears are common and our dentist understands how anxiety can affect a person and contribute to the avoidance of necessary dental treatments. Sedation is used effectively to provide total relaxation during any dental treatment. There are different sedation options that a person can select with helpful input from our dentist. These methods are:
- Nitrous Oxide
- Oral Sedation
- Full Anesthesia
Each sedation option will depend on the level of anxiety that is experienced during treatment. Nitrous Oxide is commonly referred to as laughing gas and is administered safely while inducing a state of complete relaxation. The patient remains alert yet completely relaxed during this level of sedation. The oral sedation method does not require inhalation to be administered and is used in a standard pill form. The special sedative pill is orally ingested before the treatment is started. This provides a relaxed and comfortable state for a patient that experiences dental anxiety. More severe cases of anxiety can be controlled and corrected with full anesthesia that is administered by our licensed dental anesthesiologist. This sedation allows a patient to relax in a sleeplike state during the treatment.
Our dentist provides several options for our patients to receive needed dental care without anxiety, fears or phobias causing stress. It’s no longer necessary to suffer from anxiety during a routine dental visit with either one of our sedation dentistry techniques. These modern advancements may be safely used for children and adults after determining the level of anxiety that is experienced during the initial consultation.
I've been going here since 2010 and I love this dental office! It's very convenient to my residence and they offer an array of services! I'm currently under Invisalign treatment and they gave me a great price! I highly recommend them for any of your dental needs!

Now I Can Smile Again!
The dentist just made my front teeth/smile look like I had veneers implanted! She took away all my dark spots and heading without crowns and painful implants. It looks amazing! Thank You 🙂
The dentist was very kind + caring. Highly recommend! I only had a few days left on my dental insurance + she helped to prioritize my care + fit me in so that I could get issues taken care of in a pinch. The office manager, couldn't have been sweeter + she helped me to understand the sometimes tricky insurance pieces + actual prices I'd be paying before I made any decisions. A+ experience.
