“Many people avoid dental treatments altogether because of fear and we understand that. So in our practice, we offer oral sedation, IV sedation, and general anesthesia.”

IV Sedation Delivers Better Patient Experiences

To ensure that our patients experience the most relaxed and painless care, we give you the option to receive IV sedation dentistry. Unlike other sedation options, IV sedation can be administered at a higher level, helping patients with severe dental anxiety relax comfortably during their procedure. We are able to adjust the dosage and strength, which lets us provide more predictable and customized level of sedation right from the beginning and throughout your whole treatment. IV sedation will not “wear off” at any point during your procedure and will only be halted once treatment is complete. For many of our fearful patients, IV sedation dentistry gives them then confidence they need to attend their dental appointments in the future!

  • Local Anesthesia

    Local anesthesia is used to numb the area in need of treatment, and is often combined with stronger forms of sedation for virtually painless dental care.

  • Oral
    Sedation

    Pill taken to reduce dental anxiety
    Oral sedation is taken in pill form before the appointment, leaving patients with mild-to-moderate dental anxiety in a calmed state throughout treatment.
  • IV
    Sedation

    IV is used for dental anxiety

    IV sedation is administered through the veins, putting patients with severe dental anxiety or in need of extensive treatment into a conscious “sleep” state.

Improved Dental Care, Better Oral Health

Overcoming dental anxiety with the help of sedation dentistry has profound psychological and health effects on our patients. Without a fear of the dentist, many patients feel empowered in their experiences with us, and are capable of maintaining routine appointments and undergoing treatment that was out of the question before. Similarly, the care they receive from us benefits their oral health, improves the function of their teeth, and restores aesthetics to their smile! We never want dental anxiety to be the reason you do not receive necessary dental care. If you are fearful of the dentist, turn to us!
