Sedation dentistry is an excellent option for anyone who suffers from dental anxiety or phobia, has difficulty getting numb, hates the tastes, smells, and shots associated with the dental office; has a strong gag reflex or has highly sensitive teeth. It is also ideal for patients who wish to have multiple procedures completed in one visit without discomfort or for older patients who have difficulty sitting for longer periods of time.
A prescription sedative is available prior to treatment. If you are taking advantage of sedation treatment, it is important to have someone drive you to and from the appointment. You will arrive completely relaxed and be kept extremely comfortable throughout your visit. We also offer nitrous oxide sedation, which has an immediate effect and can be safely administered in incremental doses, as needed, throughout the dental procedure. This type of oral sedation has been found to be highly effective for patients with a severe gag reflex.
