IV Sedation Dentistry
Going to dentist does not have to cause anxiety and stress, which are never good for your health.
Sedation dentistry can help you feel relaxed as you receive your dental care, so you can achieve and
maintain healthy teeth and gums.
Sedation dentistry can help you:
- Complete more treatments in one appointment.
- Conquer your fear of dental procedures.
- Avoid the discomfort of long dental appointments.
- Avoid discomfort caused by the gag-reflex, holding the jaw open, and laying still for long periods
- Make dental procedures feel more comfortable, and gentle, and get them finished faster.
We offer nitrous oxide and IV sedation to induce states of relaxation that deliver a calm and peaceful
experience. Dr. Paul will help you select the right sedation option for you, based on extent of your
treatment and level of relaxation you desire.
We always strive to provide best care for our patients, especially if they are anxious about going to the
dentist. IV sedation can help you relax during your dental procedure and be free from fear or worry. IV
sedation lets you rest comfortably while your general and implant dentistry treatments are performed.
