If fear of the dentist has kept you from getting the important dental care you need, you are in good company. Thousands of people across the nation put off going to the dentist because of a deep-seated anxiety about the entire process. However, thanks to sedation dentistry, your dental phobia no longer needs to get in the way of a beautiful smile.

At our office, sedation dentistry is performed using a mild oral sedative. This safe pill is taken prior to your procedure and wears off shortly afterwards. You should arrange to have a friend or family member drive you to and from your appointment, since the pill can cause grogginess.

Under the oral sedative’s effect, you will still be conscious and responsive, but you will be fully relaxed and stress-free. Most people do not remember details about their procedure.

Sedation dentistry not only helps you feel more comfortable in the dentist’s chair, it can also help us perform your procedure more efficiently, since you are completely still and relaxed for the duration of the appointment.
