Say Goodbye to Dental Anxiety With Our Gentle Care

Many people get nervous when they think about going to the dentist. If you do too, you’re not alone. Surveys show that the majority of people have at least some anxiety about dental visits. Our compassionate dental team will do all we can to help you relax. If you have any questions about your treatment, we’ll take time to answer them and make sure you’re fully informed.

You can also take advantage of our soothing sedation options to get comfortable:

  • Inhaled Sedation – You’ll inhale sweet-smelling laughing gas through a small mask. In a few moments, you’ll begin to feel relaxed from head to toe. You may even feel a tingling sensation in your arms and legs or feel a little giddy. The best part is, you’ll feel like yourself immediately again as soon as the gas is removed. You’ll be able to drive yourself home with no problem.
  • Oral Conscious Sedation – Dr. Kaady will give you a prescription for a small pill that you’ll take before your appointment. By the time your exam or procedure begins, you’ll be relaxed all over. You will most likely remain awake, although some patients become so relaxed that they doze off. The effects of the pill will last for several hours, so you’ll need a friend or family member to drive you home afterward.
