Many people avoid the dentist because of anxiety and fear. Yes, with sedation dentistry you can really can relax in the dentist chair. Sedation dentistry is a great option for people with high anxiety when it comes to the dentist and dental procedures. Sedation can be used on during almost any procedure from invasive procedures to simple teeth cleanings. At Palmer Ridge Dental & Orthodontics we use several types of sedation dentistry. One common method we use is Nitrous Oxide which allows you to relax while your procedure takes place. Another method is known as "Twilight Sedation". This is a deeper form of sedation that involves the use of oral medications, leaving you feeling nice and calm during your procedure. We also offer full sedation when the oral surgeon is on staff. The end goal of sedation dentistry is to allow you to fully relax while your procedure takes place. Allow us to brighten your smile and your confidence without causing you fear, stress or anxiety.
