Sedation Dentistry & Dental Anxiety

Does the Thought of a visit to the dentist’s office make you a little anxious? If you suffer from dental anxiety, you are not alone! Many people have some level of dental phobia. Luckily for our patients, our doctors offer sedation dentistry. Sedation dentistry allows our patients to become fully relaxed for the duration of their time in the treatment chair, feeling little or no discomfort.

Patients who undergo sedation before a dental procedure are not actually asleep and are able to respond to questions from the Doctor when necessary. The Doctor uses an inhalation technique with a gas known as “laughing gas”. Patients are monitored to ensure their sedation is successful and that they experience little or no discomfort. If you have any questions about the procedure or dental anxieties, give us a call and we’ll do our best to answer your questions.
