What is Sedation Dentistry?
Oral Sedation Dentistry is a wonderful service for patients who are looking for a more comfortable and relaxing dental experience. With Oral Sedation, oral sedative medications can be used to reduce patient fear and anxiety, allowing patients to undergo a wide range of dental procedures in a comfortable atmosphere. Oral Sedation can be used for simple cleanings to more complex procedures.
Who Can Have Oral Sedation?

Sedation dentistry may also be appropriate for people who:
- Have a low pain threshold
- Can't sit still in the dentist's chair
- Have very sensitive teeth
- Have a bad gag reflex
- Need a large amount of dental work completed
