Our Service Your Smile

Sedation Dentistry

sedation dentistry

Our goal is for you to have the best and most comfortable dental experience possible.  Conscious oral sedation is a great option if you are anxious about dental treatment or if you want an extra level of comfort without using IV sedation. 

We will prescribe you a medication to take one hour prior to your appointment time.  The medication calms you so that you feel relaxed during treatment and unlikely to remember much of the appointment, but still safely awake.   Because you are so comfortable, you may tolerate having more treatment done at the appointment than you normally would.  Use of this medication requires another person to drive you to and from the appointment and to watch over you for 24 hours after you have taken the medication. 

We have many patients that were quite anxious about dentistry when they first met us, but now actually enjoy coming to our office.
