Millions of Americans have anxiety about going to the dentist. Some are so fearful that they avoid their dental checkups altogether. Not only does this jeopardize your oral health, it can also harm your overall health as well.
With oral sedation dentistry, you don’t have to cringe in fear at your next appointment. Whatever the dental procedure, we can help make your dental experience relaxing and comfortable.
Who Can Benefit From Sedation Dentistry?
If any of this sounds familiar to you, you might be a good candidate for the service:
- Have anxiety or fear when anticipating pain
- Are sensitive to the smells, sights, and sounds of a dental office
- Have gag reflex sensitivities
- Have a hard time sitting through long procedures
Sedation dentistry allows the doctor to provide you dental treatments safely and comfortably, without the worry and fear you might feel normally. During sedation dentistry, you may experience:
- A feeling of comfort and relaxation — you’ll be awake, but not necessarily aware
- Loss of sense of time
- No sense of smell or sound
We are often asked if sedation dentistry is a safe procedure, and yes, it is. You are given sedation medication orally to take in time for your appointment. We’ll monitor you through the entire procedure to make sure everything is going smoothly.

We care and respect your feelings and don’t want you to avoid important dental treatments out of fear. If you have dental anxiety, please call our office to learn more about dental sedation.
