Digital X-Rays

Less Radiation, better images.

Low Radiation Digital X-rays use 90% less radiation and provides immediate images to quickly diagnose hidden problems. We are not only able to reduce your exposure to radiation but also increase the diagnostic proficiency. In addition to increased diagnostics, we reduce the amount of harmful chemicals and other waste materials associated with traditional X-ray technology.

Sedation dentist

Dental Sedation

 

FREE Nitrous "Laughing Gas" Dentistry

Also known as laughing gas, Nitrous Oxide is beneficial in calming a patient's anxiety before a procedure. It is a sweet-smelling, non-irritating, colorless gas that you can breathe. We offer complimentary nitrous for all appointment's. Just ask.

Oral Conscious Sedation

Are you extremely anxious about visiting the dentist? We can administer an oral sedative to relax you before performing any restorative dental procedure. Safe and effective, Oral Sedation allows you to remain awake and aware, but your anxiety will be reduced for any dental procedure.

IV Sedation

Conscious IV Sedation is also known as "twilight sleep." We are specialty trained to offer this type of sedation. It is particularly good for patients with strong gag reflexes and high dental anxiety or those requiring multi-visit procedures that would prefer the work to be done in one visit. IV Sedation is also used in most oral surgery procedures and requires more planning on the patient's and doctor's part. The patient will be groggy after the procedure and will need a friend or family member to drive them home and monitor them for the next few hours.

General Anesthesia

Intravenous general anesthesia is an excellent solution for phobic patients. In our office, we utilize an Anesthesiologist to administer the sedation.

This form of anesthesia puts our patients in a peaceful sleep state for the entire duration of the dental treatment. Anxious patients receive anesthesia before the procedure begins. They remain in an unconscious sleep state for the procedure and then gradually wake up. Most phobic clients rave about anesthesia because you essentially skip the entire event!

Furthermore, the pain that may incur during a procedure cannot be felt. Again, patients are completely asleep and anesthetized during the process and cannot feel any pain in this state.
