Your Dental Sedation Options

Dr. Shepherd on Relieving Anxiety Read Transcript

We understand it’s not simply a matter of “getting over it” when it comes to dental anxiety. Perhaps you had a painful visit to a dentist when you were younger. Or maybe you get anxious in any medical or clinical setting.

Regardless of the cause behind your dental anxiety, we can help with dental sedation options. We offer three forms of dental sedation:

  • Nitrous oxide sedation – just lay back and breathe in this gas through a small mask to melt away your concerns
  • Oral conscious sedation – about an hour before your visit, you’ll take this pill so you can arrive completely relaxed
  • IV sedation – this is the strongest form of sedation we offer and will vanquish your fears almost immediately

Relaxing Setting, Comfort Options

When you visit our gorgeous dental office, our friendly team will greet you with warm smiles and listen intently to your concerns to provide the best experience we can.

To make your experience more comfortable, we can give you the option of a private care room or a room with a view of our serene courtyard and fountain. We can also provide a variety of items to make your appointment more pleasant, including:

  • Warm blankets
  • Cozy pillows
  • Headphones with calming music

We can also provide longer visits by request so you won’t feel rushed!
