Sedation Dentistry

Outstanding quality of care completely focused on you


We understand that going to the dentist may be stressful for some of our patients. 

We want you to be as comfortable as possible during your dental treatment, so we are pleased to offer our patients the option of comfortable, safe, and effective sedation dentistry. With sedation dentistry, patients can be completely relaxed during treatment, in comfort, without gagging and anxiety.

Patients who benefit from sedation dentistry may have:
  • Fear or anxiety of being at the dentist
  • Difficulty sitting still for long periods of time
  • Apprehension about certain dental procedure
What is Sedation Dentistry?

Sedation dentistry refers to various techniques that can help patients achieve a relaxed state. Sedation dentistry does not mean the use of general anesthesia, however. The drugs used in sedation dentistry render a patient completely at ease, but conscious, so that basic treatments or advanced therapies can be performed with the patient able to provide responses. 

Oral Conscious Sedation

Oral conscious sedation refers to the use of a liquid or pill prior to the dental visit. This will put the patient in that relaxed state. Patients will need to arrange for transportation to and from the appointment as they will not be in fit state to operate a vehicle. 

IV Sedation

IV sedation refers to the use of sedation drugs administered intravenously at the practice. As with oral conscious sedation, patients will need to arrange for transportation to and from the appointment in order to ensure their safety.
