Sedation Dentistry

Many ways to feel better during a dental procedure

If you are anxious or fearful because of a past traumatic dental experience, or you hate needles or shots, or if you feel at all embarrassed about your teeth, then you’ve come to the right place.

Our practice offers a variety of anxiety-free dental sedation dentistry procedures, including twilight sedation, for your comfort and relaxation. If you are uncomfortable and tense, your visit will not go as well as if you feel secure, knowing that your discomfort will be controlled.

Our sedation techniques include:

  • IV sedation
  • Twilight or oral conscious sedation
  • Nitrous oxide

When administered by a trained professional, IV sedation is safe and effective, especially for patients requiring extensive dental procedures. A real benefit, IV sedation allows all work to be done in a single visit. Often patients don’t even remember having the work done.

Oral conscious, or twilight sedation and nitrous oxide, or laughing gas, are effective for mild anxiety. Remember, safety is our priority.
