• Sedation Dentistry

  • Adults and children alike who have not been introduced properly or at all to a good, professional, and comforting dental team have a hard time going to the dentist. This is due to anxiety and fear of not knowing what to expect. If a patient old or young tends to experience severe nervousness due to this being a very first visit or perhaps it has been many years since a previous traumatic experience, we as dental experts will make it our priority to make them as comfortable as possible before any treatment is started. Sedation options help put patients in a state of calm or sleep allowing the dentist to do all dental work without the patient feeling or remembering anything. Age, behavior, and the treatment being done are all considered when deciding if sedation is an appropriate option.

    As far as young children are concerned, our friendly staff is trained in calming techniques that may not require any drugs. During the initial visit we will get to know each child and introduce them to the dental team while making it a fun and educational experience.
