You will find information ranging from what causes bad breath to how to read x-rays to oral cancer.

Sedation Dentistry

Sedation pillowAre dental fears keeping you from having a healthy mouth?

Are you afraid of going to the dentist?

Has it been a long time since your last dental appointment due to fear?

Do you have sensitive teeth and gums?

Are you immune to traditional methods of numbing techniques?

If you answered "yes" to any of these questions then conscious sedation is for you.

What To Expect

Sedation relaxationOne hour before your appointment, you will take a pill. You will need a driver to escort you to and from the dental office. You will likely be drowsy upon arrival.

You'll be sedated just enough to be unaware of the treatment, as if you were asleep. We can perform a wide range of dental procedures in a single visit.

Treatment Completion

Upon completion of your dental treatment under conscious sedation, you will feel relaxed with little or no memory of the procedure.
