Gentle Dental Care with the Help of Sedation

Dental sedation is most popular for its ability to help patients who experience dental fear or phobia find comfort while visiting their dentists. By creating a relaxed, slightly euphoric feeling, sedation alleviates the anxiety that can cause many patients to postpone or skip necessary dental treatment. However, sedation is also a popular choice for patients who have conditions that make it difficult to sit still, or who require complex dental treatment to restore their smiles. At our office, we offer a choice of sedation options, including nitrous oxide (laughing gas) and oral sedation (pill or liquid medication), to help all patients feel comfortable during their visits.

Can You Benefit from Sedation?

Dental sedation is safe for patients of all ages, and while it can promote a state of deep relaxation, you will always remain conscious throughout your procedure. If you suffer from dental fear, heightened anxiety, or phobia, then ask your dentist how sedation can help you overcome it so you can give your smile the care and attention that it needs. If you need to fully makeover or restore your smile, then ask your dentist how sedation can help make your treatment more comfortable, convenient, and time-efficient.
