Anesthetics & Sedation
If you are worried about your treatment or experience dental anxiety, we can help ease your concerns with one of our patient relaxation options.
We can make sure you’re relaxed from the moment you come in for your appointment with oral conscious sedation. You simply take a prescribed pill right before your visit, and you’ll be completely at ease throughout your time with us.

Otherwise referred to as laughing gas, nitrous oxide is one of the most common and safest anesthesia techniques used in dentistry. It is administered through a soft breathing mask.
- Significantly reduces pain and anxiety
- Takes effect in just a couple minutes
