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.

I began seeing Dr. Avery and his staff over 20 years ago when my parents referred me to him. Seeing the dentist is not necessarily fun, but I have always enjoyed visiting Dr. Avery and his staff. They are always friendly, concerned, and professional!
