Sedation and Sleep Dentistry
Breathe Easier, Smile Easier
There are a variety of reasons we provide sedation dentistry. Sometimes the very nature of the procedure demands that sedation be administered to control pain and make for a more seamless treatment experience.
Sedation dentistry is also the ideal solution for patients who experience anxiety when visiting the dentist, have very sensitive teeth or gums, hate seeing the needle used when administering a local anesthetic or have a bad gag reflex.
Sedation dentistry is suitable and safe for children as young as two years old and adults in sound health. There is no referral needed to come to our office and receive sedation dentistry.

Technically known as nitrous oxide, laughing gas is an excellent way to calm dental anxieties while undergoing treatment. Laughing gas is proven safe, wears off minutes after your treatment is complete and you are permitted to drive yourself home after your appointment.
Oral conscious sedation
A sedative that is administered orally prior to treatment. Much like laughing gas, you will be conscious and extremely relaxed during treatment, and you may experience some minor amnesia of the treatment afterward. The sedation takes some time to wear off so you will need a friend or family member to drive you home after your appointment.
For sleep dentistry, we administer a general anesthetic that will effectively put you to sleep for the duration of your treatment. Sleep dentistry is used for more complex procedures or if the patient suffers from a high degree of anxiety. After treatment, you will need to be driven home by a caregiver and they should stay with you for the next 24 hours.

Kind words from
Amazing place! I got technically two gifts just for signing up (one is a promo, but I think you might get the other one as a new patient). I’m very happy with the professionalism and knowledge of the staff. Also, when I went back to the place.. the dental hygienist welcomed me by name as I entered only after coming in ONCE prior. Such nice service. Highly recommend.
