We have many options for helping you relax through your dental appointments and we understand some patients have high anxiety. We welcome patients with anxiety. We will help every patient comfortably succeed at getting their needed care.
Some of our sedation patients had bad dental experiences as children. Some are very small children. Some have special needs. Whatever the circumstance, we have a level of sedation appropriate for almost anyone needing sedation.
Minimal Sedation DentistryCalming Anxiety and Fears
We take your fear and anxiety about visiting the dentist seriously, and we can provide a solution specific to your needs. During minimal sedation dentistry, you will remain awake, but will be more relaxed, time may seem to pass more quickly, and you may not remember your dental visit. With minimal sedation dentistry, we often can accomplish in one or two dental visits what normally would have taken several visits.
Minimal sedation dentistry involves the use of nitrous oxide (laughing gas) mixed with oxygen, or oral sedation (taking a sedative drink or pill) to help you relax and calm your fears.

Regardless of which minimal sedation method is used, a local anesthetic may still be required to numb the location of the dental procedure in order to minimize pain.
Advanced Sedation DentistryWe also offer advanced sedation dentistry for patients who need additional support to have dental work completed. These options are particularly helpful for children who need a lot of dental care, special needs patients, or other unique circumstances.
