What is sedation dentistry?
Sedation dentistry is a wonderful option for our patients who feel anxious, stressed, or nervous about visiting the dentist. Sedation dentistry involves using a safe, effective sedative medication to help you feel more relaxed and comfortable during your dental treatment. Before your visit, you will take a pill that will help you feel calm and relaxed by the time of your appointment. You can lay back and unwind or even sleep during your dental treatment. Our experienced dentist and dental team will carefully monitor you throughout your appointment to ensure your safety. The effects will last the entire day, and you can expect to resume your normal activities the next day. Be certain to have a friend or family member available to drive you to and from our office. We also offer nitrous oxide sedation. you will breathe in nitrous oxide (also known as laughing gas) during your treatment to ensure that you feel relaxed and calm throughout your visit.
