SEDATION DENTISTRY – ARE YOU AFRAID OF THE DENTIST?
Once you’ve experienced oral sedation, your fear of the dentist will melt way for a relaxed, comfortable experience.
Many people fear going to the dentist. We understand. Our oral sedation dentistry team provides a relaxed and comfortable – and pain-free – treatment option.
Let’s face it … going to the dentist can be a nerve-racking experience. How many times have you wished that you could just sleep right through your appointment? Well, we offer a solution, its called oral conscious sedation. It’s called conscious because you are still aware of where you are, and sedation because you are so relaxed and comfortable that you don’t focus on your immediate surroundings.
