Sedation Dentistry

It is possible to undergo a complex dental treatment like a root canal, extraction, or oral surgery and have no recollection of the time it took, the pain, the noise, or the discomfort you were expecting. We are excited to provide our patients with the option of comfortable, safe, and effective sedation dentistry. Patients who should consider sedation dentistry have:

  • A fear or anxiety of being at the dentist
  • A hard time sitting still for long periods of time
  • A hard time getting (and staying) numb from anesthetics

What is Sedation Dentistry?

Sedation dentistry allows patients who experience anxiety when visiting the dentist to receive the necessary dental treatment safely and comfortably. The benefits of sedation dentistry include:

  • No memory of undergoing the procedure
  • No sense of time while under sedation
  • No sense of smell or sound
  • No fear or anxiety during treatment

Patients who have used sedation dentistry while undergoing a dental procedure will tell you it is a simple, relaxing way to experience dentistry.
