Get the Pleasant Dental Care You Deserve, Without Anxiety

We understand that no matter how nice the amenities are or how gentle our team is, some people will still need a little extra helping getting comfortable in the dental chair. To make your time with us as pleasant as possible, we offer multiple levels of soothing sedation to help you relax:

  • Inhaled Sedation – You’ll breathe in laughing gas and immediately begin to feel light and euphoric all over.
  • Oral Conscious Sedation – Just take a small pill ahead of your appointment to feel completely relaxed during your procedure.
  • IV Sedation – We’ll carefully administer this sedative, which puts you in a sleeplike state during your time with us.

One of these sedation methods will work for you. We’ll discuss each one in detail, so you can decide on the one that’s best for your needs.

Common Questions About Relieving Dental Anxiety

Can you help with relieving dental anxiety?

Our team has lots of experience in helping patients overcome their anxious feelings, so they can receive the dental care they need. We have created a calming environment to help you relax. We also use patient-friendly technology and techniques to speed your treatment and keep discomfort at a minimum. For example, our dental laser helps you avoid the need for incisions and stitching.

What can you do to relieve dental anxiety?

Our dentists and team members will take time to listen to your needs. We’ll also answer all your questions fully, making sure you have the information you need to make good decisions about your oral care. We can also offer sedation options, including IV sedation that will put you in a “twilight” state similar to sleep. You won’t remember anything about your procedure afterward.

Are there steps I can take at home to relieve dental anxiety?

We believe the more you prepare at home, the better your dental experience will be. If you start to feel anxious about your dental work, take six to 10 deep breaths slowly. Doing so will help you relax and lower your heart rate. It also helps to picture yourself lying back comfortably in the dental chair in your private care room. When it comes time for your appointment, you can also use these techniques in our office.
