Effective Sedation Dentistry Services for Every Level of Fear

Sedation dentistry allows you to receive the periodontal or dental implant treatment you need, without the worry. We offer several sedation options, providing relief from mild to severe dental fear.

Nitrous Oxide

A clear, odorless gas that delivers a relaxed, euphoric feeling. Nitrous oxide leaves no aftereffects and is ideal for minor anxiety.

Oral Sedation

A prescription sedative pill taken an hour prior to your appointment. Oral sedation allows for calm and relaxation. It is effective for moderate dental anxiety. With this option, you typically have little recollection of your procedure.

IV Conscious Sedation

A sedative administered intravenously. IV sedation is often used for severe anxiety, multiple procedures or complex surgeries. Though technically “awake,” you typically have little-to-no memory of the visit.

Local Anesthetic

Numbs treatment sites, including the gums, bone and teeth. Local anesthetic if often combined with sedation options for a pain-free procedure.
