Sedation Dentistry

Ever wish you could sail through dental visits without anxiety or fear? Would you rather endure an agonizing toothache than go to the dentist? Answering “yes” to these questions could mean that you're a perfect candidate for sedation dentistry.

With sedation dentistry, you can forget about fear and focus on pure relaxation. Patients who are apprehensive about receiving dental treatment often avoid going to the dentist. Ultimately, this avoidance can lead to advanced disease and the need for expensive treatments that could have been avoided. Minimal sedation involves inhaling nitrous oxide (“laughing gas”). Nitrous oxide helps you relax and wears off quickly.

No More Needles! Electronic Dental Anesthesia is an alternative form of mild sedation that uses electronic impulses to help you relax. Electronic dental anesthesia offers an alternative to local anesthetic injections, providing dental pain control in procedures such as a tooth filling or dental cleaning without requiring a shot from a traditional needle.
