There’s no reason to fear going to the dentist! Sedation dentistry provides safe, comfortable dental treatment for patients with special needs. Sometimes called relaxation dentistry, sedation dentistry is a method of managing pain and anxiety during professional dental care through the use of medication. IV sedation has the advantage of reducing pain, inflammation, and also helps manage consciousness and dental anxiety during your dental procedure. Patients are able to understand our dentists and even respond during the procedure. The patient enters a state of relaxation, alleviating any anxiety.

You can benefit from sedation dentistry if you experience one or more of the following:

  • High fear of dental care
  • Complex dental problems
  • Traumatic dental experiences
  • Fear of needles and shots
  • Trouble getting numb
  • Sensitive teeth
