Would you rather endure the agony of a toothache than go in to be seen by your dentist? Well, you’re not alone. Many people are afraid of going to the dentist, and because of this, suffer through many tooth related issues that could be treated or prevented had they seen their dentist. For people who tend to avoid their dentists, sedation dentistry may be the answer. Sedation dentistry is used for everything from invasive procedures to a simple tooth cleaning. There are even options on the type of sedation you can take to be calm, relaxed and comfortable throughout your visit. Give us a call today for a Free Consultation!

We offer oral sedation and nitrous oxide, or laughing gas.
Oral Sedation: This level of sedation requires you to take a sedative in the form of a pill. The pill is given to you before your appointment so that it has time to work before we begin your procedure. You will be awake throughout the dental treatment (although some patients drift off), but you will remember little or nothing about the procedure.
Nitrous Oxide: Nitrous oxide (laughing gas) is one of the most common forms of sedation dentistry and can be used for any age. Nitrous oxide is mixed with oxygen to provide a gas that helps keep you calm and relaxed throughout your appointment. The gas is delivered to you through a mask that is placed over your nose. Dr. Reiter will control the amount of gas you receive, and you will be awake throughout the entire procedure.
With nitrous oxide, you will only feel the sedation during your appointment. The dentist will remove the mask after your appointment is complete and the sedation will start to wear off within minutes. With oral sedation, the effects last longer and you will need to bring along someone to drive you home after your visit.

You will feel deeply relaxed and at ease. Sedation helps take away the fear and anxiety and keeps surrounding sounds and smells from bothering you. You’ll feel drowsy and may only remember moments from your visit, or you may not remember it at all!!

Yes! There are many patients who have suffered from dental anxiety and are finally able to relax through their visits and receive the dental care they need. They are now comfortable making appointments with their dentist to maintain their healthy smile! Sedation dentistry can also make this difference for you!
