Your dental appointments can actually be relaxing!
Dental sedation has made significant breakthroughs in the field of patient comfort. While dental anesthesia prevents patients from experiencing pain, it doesn't address the issue of anxiety. And patients who are needle-phobic or have sensitive gag reflexes aren't comfortable receiving the injections that make anesthesia possible.
Sedation dentistry offers a variety of medications that calm the nervous system and help encourage a positive outlook. Patients have the option of several types of sedation so that they can find the one that fits them best. If you think sedation could be helpful for your next procedure, just ask us about what could be right for you.

What's the source of most patients' dental anxiety? A fear of pain. And what's the simplest way to avoid discomfort? Preventing dental problems from arising in the first place. If you stay on the offensive, you can prevent cavities and gum disease so that you don't have to go through fillings, shots, or periodontal treatment.
