Customized sedation dentistry that is safe and effective

There are different types of sedation dentistry, and you and your doctor will work together to decide on a personalized treatment plan that will give you the care you need while ensuring your comfort

every step of the way.

​​ Nitrous Oxide Sedation


For many patients, nitrous oxide will reduce anxiety. Nitrous oxide is beneficial because the dosage can be regulated during treatment and patients are normally capable of driving shortly after the procedure is complete.




Nitrous Oxide with an Oral Sedative


If you experience higher levels of anxiety, an oral sedative can be offered before nitrous oxide is started. This is effective for reducing anxiety regarding the injection of local anesthetics.




​IV Sedation


We recognize that some of our patients may feel anxious or apprehensive about receiving dental care. Our doctors and team work hard to make sure that you have a comfortable, positive experience, and that's why we are pleased to offer sedation dentistry for those patients needing a little extra comfort before receiving treatment. Feeling anxious about receiving dental care should never prevent you from having the beautiful, healthy smile you deserve.
