Many people deal with a fear of the dentist.


Traumatic dental experiences, other medical fears, and more can all contribute to dental anxiety.


The worst part is that dental anxiety prevents many people from getting the oral healthcare they need. For some, the only solution seems to be avoiding treatment.


In the end, this only worsens oral health and leads to a worse dental condition that requires more extensive dental care.

Sedation Options

Sedation dentistry includes multiple sedation options. We work with each patient to determine the right level of sedation for their dental treatment and needs. Here’s an overview of our sedation options:

One option we offer is oral conscious sedation. The patient ingests a dentist prescribed pill at home before the appointment. Someone else must then escort the patient to their dental visit. You’ll feel completely relaxed and pain-free but will still be conscious. Since the effects linger for a few hours, the escort will also bring the patient home.

Nitrous oxide can help patients with mild dental fears. The dentist places a nasal mask over the patient’s nose to emit the colorless, odorless gas mixture. It helps calm the patient and delivers a warm feeling. It does not fully sedate the patient, so they can still respond to the dentist’s cues. When the gas is turned off, the effects also end.
Those who have extreme dental anxiety, or are undergoing more extensive procedures, may be a fit for IV sedation. The IV is placed in the back of the hand, delivering medication to the bloodstream. It totally relaxes the patient, and the dental team monitors their vitals the entire way through. An escort must take the patient home, as the effects can last up to 24 hours.
