Relax during your stress and anxiety-free dental experience.
We offer Nitrous Oxide (Relaxing Gas) to patients who prefer to experience reduced stress and anxiety during routine procedures.
Pill Sedation (Sleep Dentistry) can be used for patients who desire anxiety-free dental treatments. Pill Sedation can also be used for patients with lengthy appointments who prefer to sleep through the visit, rather than just being numb. Complex treatments can be done in as little as one to two appointments, all while you relax. People who have difficulty getting numb will find this eliminates the problem. Sedation Dentistry is a safe way to reduce the fatigue of dental treatments requiring lengthy visits.
How does it work?
Patients take a small, relaxing pill an hour before their appointment. This pill begins to relax you and takes away your anxieties. When you arrive, we administer stronger pills to sedate you. We use a monitor to watch your vital signs.
During your visit, you will be very comfortable while we take care of your dental needs. We provide added comfort by covering you with a blanket. You may even listen to music on your headphones.
You will have little or no memory of your dental experience; you won't remember any sounds or smells. When your treatment is complete, your companion will return you home to finish your comfortable, relaxing day.
