Sedation/Comfort

It’s not uncommon to feel anxious before and during dental procedures. Many people feel a little nervous or even fearful when thinking about their upcoming appointment. At Dentiste, we understand that each of our patients deserves individual attention.  We have great news:  we offer you valuable tools to help you seek the care you need! You can experience dental care in a comfortable, personalized approach by considering several different sedation methods.

The most common forms of dental sedation involve inhalation, oral, and intravenous medications. While sedation makes dentistry easier for you, these agents are not painkillers so normal numbing medications will be used as indicated. But well-planned sedation will enhance every part of your treatment and make it more enjoyable.
