Fearful Patients

There is about 50% of the population that doesn’t go to the dentist and a large portion of this is due to fear and time. Sedation dentistry allows us to see these people in a relaxed atmosphere and with fewer appointments.

After your initial consultation, you will be given a small pill to take before your treatment appointment . Although you will not be unconscious many patients describe it as similar to being asleep. At this visit we can usually perform all the procedures needed in a comfortable setting.

It is normal that you have no memory of the visit at all.

Who is a good candidate:

  • people with a high anxiety or have had a traumatic experience in the past.
  • people who have sensitive teeth or are afraid of needles.
  • those who have a strong gag reflex.
  • people with tmj problems and have a hard time opening or staying open.
  • when you don’t have enough time for multiple visits.

Sedation dentistry is easy, you take a pill before you get to the office (no IV’s), have a friend drive you to and from the office, and relax. The work is done before you know it. We treat patients from 18 to 80 years with sedation. Your vital signs are monitored while you are at the office to ensure your safety.

Please call our office and let the staff know you are interested in sedation and we will take good care of you.


We are dedicated to giving each of our patients the beautiful, healthy smile they deserve!
