Did you know that as many as 15 percent of the American population actively avoids visiting the dentist because they are afraid or anxious of the work that needs to be done in their mouths?
At our dental office, we understand this fact and offer sedation dentistry to our patients.
Sedation dentistry is a type of dentistry that helps patients relax completely and feel no discomfort or pain during the appointment.
We use two different techniques to safely sedate our patients: nitrous oxide sedation and oral conscious sedation.
