Sedation Dentistry

We now offer a way to have an anxiety free visit to the dentist

Don't let fear or anxiety get in the way of keeping your smile healthy!

Many people fear going to the dentist and may have a fear of needles, or had a past traumatic experience at the dentists office.

You are not alone!

Even if you have anxiety or fear of any pain associated with some of the procedures done at dental offices or even sounds of dental equipment, we can make your visit to our office pain free and stress free with sedation dentistry techniques.

Please note that ALL sedation is performed by an external, certified anesthsia group that will need to clear patients prior to giving anesthesia.

Our Process: Sedation dentistry services are done on a case-by-case basis. It is not provided for basic dental services such as dental cleanings or hygienic procedures, but for complex dental needs. The decision to use anesthesia will be made with our patients after undergoing an interview and deciding upon a treatment plan in our office.

What is Sedation Dentistry?

Sedation dentistry is a way of using specific methods of sedation to lessen the anxiety and fear while going to the dentist.

It is administered by a certified sedation specialist who will come to our office for previously cleared patients who are undergoing complex procedures.

This is the most common type of sedation dentistry and a very safe method of conscious sedation.

You will be awake and aware of your surroundings but completely relaxed.
