Why Choose Sedation Dentistry?
There are many patients who experience some form of dental anxiety. We know we have some patients who are vocal about their feelings and can push through them. However, we also have patients with such severe anxiety that they can’t get themselves to schedule an appointment. We never want our patients or their loved ones to avoid dental care because of nervousness. We want to work with them to help them feel comfortable while under our care. For a number of nervous and fearful patients, we can provide sedation dentistry.
Sedation dentistry is the use of medication to help patients relax during dental treatments. We provide three forms of sedation dentistry based on the patient’s needs: nitrous oxide, oral sedation, and IV sedation. Not only can sedation dentistry help patients that experience nervousness and fear, but it can also be beneficial to patients who need extensive dental treatment or a lengthy dental procedure. It can help patients feel relaxed for an extended period of time.

We have been using sedation dentistry in our office for many years and want to help you. Don’t let your anxiety get the best of you. We look forward to hearing from you soon!
