Depending on the type of treatment you need and your past experiences in a dental office, we provide varying levels of sedation and anesthesia to choose from.

Advantages of Dental Sedation

Electing to add sedation or sleep dentistry onto your dental appointment allows you to enjoy fewer visits and optimal comfort. You can typically combine multiple procedures into one visit, reducing your time spent at the dental office. It might even feel as if you’re napping throughout the entire procedure. Sedation is an excellent option if you dislike going to the dentist, have a sensitive gag reflex, or tend to experience anxiety/dental phobia.

Sedation Example

Which Type of Sedation Should I Choose?

Mild Comfort: Nitrous Oxide

Laughing gas is a safe and light sedative that’s ideal for nearly any dental visit. The fast-acting effects are also quickly reversible, allowing you to drive yourself home after the appointment. Nitrous oxide can usually be added at any time upon request.

Moderate Relaxation: Oral Sedation

Oral conscious sedation makes you feel daydreamy or as if you’re taking a light nap. The amnesic effect may even prevent you from remembering much about the appointment.

High Comfort: IV Sedation

“Sleep Dentistry” allows you to feel as if you’re napping through your appointment. The medication is delivered via an IV line, providing fast and safe results throughout your procedure.
