Sedation can take the fear and pain out of dentistry.
It is safe, affordable, and makes dentistry comfortable. Also known as sleep dentistry, sedation dentistry helps eliminate the pain and fear commonly associated with dental visits by administering laughing gas(nitrous oxide) or an easy to swallow, small pill.
The hardest step for the fearful patient is coming to their first office visit. Often times, it has been years since a patient has been seen by a dentist. Sometimes embarrassment as much as anxiety will prevent individuals from seeing a dentist.
