Talk to Us
If you are anxious about coming to the dentist talk to us about your concerns. Sedation is a great option that can help. We’ll recommend the type of anesthesia or sedation that’s right for you.
Safe Options Tailored to Your Needs
Whenever possible, we will recommend non-pharmacological methods of relaxation for patients with dental anxiety. However, in some cases, sedation is the preferred route of treatment. Options can range from laughing gas to oral sedatives. We are always here to help you decide what sedation option works best for you.
For long procedures that leave you sitting in the chair with your mouth wide open for a long time, sedation will keep you relaxed and comfortable. Your procedure will be over before you know it.
Helping All Forms of Dental Anxiety
Sensitive gag reflex? Chronic restlessness? Difficult to freeze? Sedation can be used strategically to overcome any of these obstacles and ensure the best dental experience possible!

to schedule an initial consultation & exam.
Your consultation will include an examination of everything from your teeth, gums and soft tissues to the shape and condition of your bite. Generally, we want to see how your whole mouth looks and functions. Before we plan your treatment we want to know everything about the health and aesthetic of your smile, and, most importantly, what you want to achieve so we can help you get there.
Frequently Asked Questions
If you find yourself anxious or nervous about receiving dental work,
sedation dentistry will likely be a good option for you. With that said, rest assured that we will carefully review your medical history to decide if sedation dentistry is the right option for you.
Our sedation dentistry options don’t actually involve patients being put to sleep. Rather sedation dentistry allows patients to feel extremely relaxed. You may not even remember any of the procedures once it’s over. At our practice, we are here to guide you every step of the way and ensure that the only experience you have is a pleasant one!
When sedation is involved in your dental procedure, a responsible adult must escort you home from the appointment. It is important to let the sedation wear off and for you to rest before returning to your regular routine.
If you receive sedation, we would advise taking the rest of the day off to recover. A good rule of thumb is to set aside 24-hours to return to your regular routine. Different types of sedation have different recovery times. It is always important to carefully follow the post-op instructions reviewed by your dentist.
You must speak with your insurance provider to find out if they cover sedation dentistry. After your initial consultation, we can provide you with an estimate to send to your insurance provider.
