A Calm & Comfortable Experience

With sedation dentistry, patients are able to have a comfortable, anxiety-free experience while having their dental work performed. Depending on the extent of the work being done and the needs of the individual patient, we offer two different methods of sedation:

ONE Nitrous Oxide ~ Also known as inhalation sedation or “laughing gas”. A mask is placed over the patient’s nose, and the flow level is adjusted by the doctor until the patient is comfortable. One advantage of this method is that as soon as the procedure is complete, the patient is placed on 100% oxygen and the feeling of sedation is gone within a few minutes.
TWO Intravenous Sedation (IV) ~ Offered for pediatric dentistry and oral surgery patients only. This type of sedation is ideal for patients with extreme anxiety when it comes to dental procedures. In this case, medication is delivered to the bloodstream via an IV line, and the patient will be put in a sleeping state while the procedure is being performed.
Talking with your doctor is the first step in deciding if sedation dentistry is right for you. Whether you are afraid of needles, have trouble getting numb, or are simply anxious when it comes to dental work, you and your dentist can discuss your individual case and options. There is no reason to put off your dental work – all it takes is a phone call to get the dental care you need. Please call us today! 1-866-980-8989
“What our patients are saying”

I would like to let you know how much I appreciate the beautiful work Dr. Nguyen did on my teeth today.  I had broken my teeth yesterday.  This morning I went to your center to make an appointment.  You office was kind enough to schedule me for the same day at 2 pm.  I was relieved because I was leaving on vacation in one week.  I am grateful for the extra care, the professional attitude of your staff and sensitivity to my predicament. I hope you will relay my heartfelt gratitude to Dr. Nguyen for giving me my smile back.
