Is Sedation a Good Option for Me?
Sedation dentistry successfully calms you while going through oral surgeries and procedures like a root canal, which can be potentially traumatic for some patients. Having a fear of needles or dental procedures is incredibly common for patients. To help alleviate the worry and stress of dental care, our nitrous oxide and oral conscious sedation options will help you feel calm and relaxed throughout your visit. These methods are perfectly safe, and they help to ensure you get the treatment you need without the panic.
