Relax with Sedation Dentistry!

For those patients who experience fear or anxiety when visiting the dentist, we offer a variety of options for sedation dentistry.

Nitrous Oxide

Choose Nitrous Oxide (laughing gas) that is delivered in the office during treatment via a small mask over your nose. This treatment option completely relaxes you and lets you drift off. As soon as the gas is turned off, the effects fade away and you’re back to your normal self within minutes.

Oral Conscious Sedation

If you prefer something a bit stronger, we offer oral conscious sedation. You simply take a little pill prior to treatment, helping you completely relax. Our team monitors your vital signs constantly and you are never left alone. You will be awake enough to respond to your dentist during treatment, but will essentially sleep through the entire appointment! Due to the wonderfully relaxing effects of the pill, you should have someone drive you to and from the appointment.

My teeth were not always the best. I have a bad gag reflex and I had some bad experiences in the past with some dentists. Thankfully, my last hygienist recommended that I see Dr. Patel. I couldn’t be more grateful. Dr. Patel is a great dentist. She explains every procedure in full detail and she always works with you on any fears and anxiety you might have when going to the dentist. You could not find a friendlier, more caring staff and understanding.

When Dr. Patel recommended that I have two fillings and two crowns, she made sure I was completely at ease. The root canal for the crown and the fillings were done with nitrous oxide sedation, which made the procedure very comfortable for me. Dr. Patel is truly gifted in her profession as well as her staff. I highly recommend them to anyone seeking dental care.
