  • Fear of pain
  • Fear of needles
  • Worries about gagging
  • Fear of being judged for the condition of your teeth
  • Apprehension about loss of control

By understanding what triggers your anxiety, we can work with you to personalize your care. This can allow you to get the treatments you need to protect and improve your healthy smile.

Make Yourself Comfortable

To give you peace of mind, we can modify our process and tailor our approach to treatment for you.

For example, we have a great solution if you fear pain or needles. Dental sedation has been helping people get dental care for 150 years. In modern dental care, sedation is better than it has ever been.

Laughing gas is fast and effective. It’s also great for people who need a little help easing into a dental chair. With inhaled sedation, you can remain relaxed and pain-free during your appointment.

You also can get cozy with our comfort amenities. This can give you peace of mind so you can get a cleaning or other care.
