Stay Calm With Our Sedation Options & Patient Amenities

To make your dental visits go as smoothly as possible, we offer you two great sedation options. Depending on your level of anxiety and the type of treatment you’re receiving, one of these will be right for your circumstances. Your choices include:

  • Inhaled Sedation – You’ll breathe in laughing gas through a small mask over your nose. In moments, it will give you a light, euphoric feeling that will help your anxiety melt away. This form of sedation works well for patients with mild dental phobia.
  • Oral Conscious Sedation – For more severe dental anxiety, your dentist will prescribe a small pill for you to take before your appointment. It will give you an all-over feeling of relaxation and calm. You’ll need to have someone available to drive you to and from your appointment with this type of sedation. The effects last for several hours.

Our team is diligent about giving you the best dental care possible in the most relaxing environment possible. Feel free to ask any questions you have about your treatment or oral health. We’ll be glad to answer them so that you stay informed. In addition, we’ll proceed at a pace that’s comfortable for you. If you need to take a break, just let us know. Your comfort is at the top of our list of priorities.

In addition to our sedation options, you’ll appreciate our patient amenities. To help you unwind, we offer:

  • Private patient care rooms for comfort and discretion
  • Soft pillows to provide head and neck support while we work
  • Cozy blankets in case you get chilly during your procedure
  • Soft music for a pleasant distraction
  • Dim lighting to help you feel more at home
