We understand that dentistry is a source of anxiety for many people. Our office is designed around a concept of relaxation. From the color on the wall to the chair in the operatory, your comfort is our top priority. However, we also understand that a negative experience in the past or a “phobia” of dentistry can be persistent for some people. In those cases we offer two options for patients during treatment:
Nitrous Oxide is a sweet smelling, non-irritating, colorless gas that is inhaled prior to beginning dental treatment. Inhalation sedation is safe and fast acting. Some patients experience mild amnesia or even fall asleep, lessening the intensity of their dental visit.
We also offer sedation medications to patients prior to arriving for appointments so that we are able to perform dental procedures, while patients remain free of anxiety.
