Relaxing Dental Experience

Part of our exceptional dental experience is helping you relax and rest easy during treatment. If the idea of dental treatment makes you or your family members apprehensive, nervous or anxious, we can help. Working together with you, we create a personalized sedation plan to help you settle in while we perform your dental treatment. 

Are You a Good Candidate for Sedation Dentistry?

All patients who experience dental anxiety may benefit from our personalized approach to sedation. If you or your family members have any of the following fears or concerns, please ask our team about sedation dentistry:

  • Are afraid of needles and/or shots
  • Experienced a traumatic dental visit in the past
  • Struggle with the smells or noises of being at a dentist's office
  • Have overly sensitive teeth, a strong gag reflex, or trouble getting numb
  • Require a more complex dental treatment
  • Feel self-conscious about your teeth
  • Desire a more comfortable dental treatment

Personalized Sedation Solutions

Sedation dentistry is foundational to ensuring a relaxing patient experience. We work together with each patient to determine the sedation approach that best matches the treatment and the desires of the patient. 

We offer oral sedation options for a safe, relaxing, and comfort driven treatment experience.

Oral Sedation

Oral sedation involves taking a pill in order to achieve a relaxed state. We will provide a prescription pill to make you feel drowsy and relaxed. Depending on the patient and the sedative, oral sedation may lead to sleep during treatment. After the treatment is completed, it may take the rest of the day for the sedation effects to wear off depending on the individual.

Is sedation dentistry safe?

Administered by trained professionals, sedation dentistry has been proven to be safe and effective for dental treatment. Without sedation, the patient’s blood pressure tends to rise. With sedation, studies show that treatment becomes safer by reducing blood pressure during the procedure.

How long will it take the sedation to wear off?

Recovery time will depend on each individual, but typically wears off long after the patient leaves the dental office. Because sedation causes drowsiness, it is mandatory that the patient must arrange transportation to and from the office following the procedure.
