DOES DENTAL ANXIETY make it difficult for you to keep up with your regular dental appointments? Sedation dentistry could be the solution you’ve been looking for so that your teeth can get the professional care they need to stay healthy.

What Is Sedation Dentistry?

You would think of having your tonsils or appendix out without sedation, why should complex dental procedures be any different.  Oral conscious sedation could be for you.  

You are given a pill to take one hour prior to your dental appointment.  Your companion will accompany you to the office.  When you arrive, you will be very drowsy.  You will relax into a very comfortable chair, covered with a thick, warm, cozy blanket.  Your vital signs will be monitored.  After you are comfortable, our experienced clinical team will take care of your dental needs.  When your treatment is completed your companion will return you home to finish your relaxing sleep.
