Sedation Dentistry Introduction

Sedation dentistry can help a patient virtually sleep through their dental procedures. This treatment option may help those with dental fears (phobia), turn multiple appointments into a single visit, and even help patients who have difficulty with conventional local anesthesia. Sedation is a wonderful option for so many patients — ask us about incorporating sedation into your next appointment. We utilize both oral and intravenous sedation in our practice.
