Taking the anxiety out of dentistry
Going to the dentist can be a nerve-wracking experience for many people. Your mouth is a sensitive area and it houses one your most precious assets: your smile! It’s understandable to have some worries about what will happen when you get dental work done. That’s why we offer effective anxiety-free dentistry. We believe that dental anxieties and fears shouldn’t dictate the state of your oral health and overall happiness.
Nitrous oxide is most commonly known as “laughing gas.” It is a popular choice among patients because it produces a calming, almost euphoric feeling and has virtually no side effects. It is also easy to administer.Your dentist will instruct you to wear a breathing mask, which will deliver the laughing gas to your system. Soon after wearing the mask, you should start to feel relaxed. Laughing gas is typically easy to flush out of your system too. When finished, your dentist will administer oxygen through the mask to disperse the gas. Then, you should be back to normal!

Oral & IV Sedation Options
Anti-anxiety medication is often used for patients who experience high levels of stress during dental appointments. The medication is to be taken before your appointment. It will help lessen your awareness, making it easier for you to undergo dental procedures. Your dentist will prescribe the medication according to your needs.
Intravenous sedation (IV sedation) puts the anti-anxiety medication directly into your bloodstream. This allows for a stronger sedation levels, as well as more control over those levels. This is an excellent option for patients who experience high levels of dental anxiety, or who need many procedures done at once. If needles aren’t your thing, see our other sedation options.
