Our team wants each patient to be as comfortable as possible and to enjoy every visit with us.

What is Sedation Dentistry?
Sedation dentistry refers to optional treatments that patients can participate in before any appointment or procedure. Sedation dentistry relieves dental anxiety and puts patients into a state of deep relaxation that lasts throughout the entire visit. Patients who participate in sedation dentistry do not sleep through their procedures. They are awake enough to answer questions, but feel incredibly comfortable even during procedures that may have made them feel anxious before. Sedation dentistry can also help by reducing sensitivity. At our practice we offer both oral conscious sedation, and nitrous oxide sedation.
Nitrous oxide has been used for sedation for decades. It is an easy, effective, and reliable way to lower your anxiety during any procedure. Patients love nitrous oxide because it is simple to administer and wears off quickly after the appointment is over. With nitrous oxide sedation, you can drive yourself to and from the dentist’s office.
Oral Conscious Sedation
Patients can also enjoy oral conscious sedation from Dr. Alex. Oral conscious sedation is administered using a small, easy-to-swallow tablet that can be taken before your procedure. With oral conscious sedation, patients achieve a deeper state of relaxation, but will have to arrange for a loved one to drive them to and from the office.
