Caring For Your Dental Implants

We Prioritize Patient Comfort

Patient comfort is a critical aspect of the care we provide our patients and something we take seriously. We offer sedation dentistry options to ensure your total comfort during treatment. Sedation dentistry benefits patients who may need assistance overcoming anxiety or those with sensitive gag reflexes or difficulty sitting still. Oral sedation is a time-tested and safe form of sedation dentistry, and we are qualified to provide oral sedation at our office. With sedation dentistry as part of your care, you can receive necessary treatment in a relaxed and comfortable environment and enjoy better long-term oral health. If visiting the dentist causes you anxiety or fear, we are here to help you feel safe and calm with sedation dentistry options.

Oral Sedation

Oral sedation is a needle-free type of sedation taken in pill form prior to the procedure. Oral sedation provides a deeper level of calm and relaxation and will leave you with little memory of the treatment or how long you were in the dentist chair.

Dr. Gilbert on relieving dental anxiety

Improve Oral Health with Sedation Dentistry

Many patients find that sedation dentistry helps them relieve anxiety associated with simply being at the dentist. When these anxieties can be conquered, it is much easier to attend routine dental appointments needed to maintain great oral health for the long-term. Better oral health reduces the risk for tooth decay and disease that can lead to complications with systemic concerns such as diabetes or heart disease. A vibrant, healthy smile also improves the confidence you feel in yourself and your appearance!
