Conscious Sedation

Many patients avoid or delay their dental treatments due to fear and anxiety associated with bad experiences of previous dental visits. Though the current dental and medical technologies allow dentistry to be performed without pain and discomfort, the environment in a dental office may not be appealing to everyone. We have made efforts to improve the comfort of your dental visits.

Our gentle and caring approach has helped many patients to gain positive experiences for their dental care. We listen to your concerns and accommodate you as much as we possibly can.

We have TV sets in every operatory for you to watch movies. We also provide headphones and a wide range of choices of music to our patients. You also can bring in your own favorite music device to help you relax during dental treatment procedures.

If good movies and soothing music are not sufficient to make you relax and enjoy your dental visits, we provide nitrous oxide sedation to lend you further help. Nitrous oxide is a safe and effective method of conscious sedation. Our state-of-the-art Accutron Mobile Sedation System allows us to provide our patients with the best quality dentistry possible.

Nitrous Oxide:

A mixture of nitrous oxide (laughing gas) and oxygen is administered through a nasal breathing apparatus. The patient remains conscious in a relaxed condition. Nitrous oxide has a sedative and analgesic (pain- controlling) effect.
