What is Sedation Dentistry?

Does the thought of going to the dentist make your entire body tense with fear? Would you rather endure the pain than step foot in a dentist's office?

You're not alone.  Dental anxiety is more common than you think.  Many people are so afraid of going to the dentist that they prefer not to have any treatment. 

Sedation can be used for everything from invasive procedures to a simple teeth cleaning. How it's used depends on the severity of the fear and the amount of treatment needed.

Sedation dentistry uses medication to help patients relax during dental procedures. Patients are usually awake and cooperative, but will likely not remember the procedure after.

The first step is a free consultation.  The dentist will discuss your sedation and treatment options with you and determine if you are a good candidate for Sedation Dentistry.  

You can expect to be treated with compassion and professionalism.  We see anxious patients every day.  You will never be judged or pressured into dental treatment that you are not comfortable with.
