Preventative dental care involves taking minor steps regularly to avoid future problems with your teeth and gums rather than taking major steps to correct a problem in the future.
For those who have a fear and/or anxiety about going to the dentist’s office, we offer sedation dentistry (conscious sedation). Most sedatives allow the patient to remain awake during their dental procedure. Though sleepiness is a side effect of some medications, nitrous oxide, oral conscious sedation and IV sedation only work to calm anxiety during your visit.
