Anxious about visiting the dentist?
With sedation dentistry you can relax in the dentist's chair.

Imagine walking into the dental office, relaxing comfortably with a warm blanket as you fall in and out of sleep. Some would rather endure the pain of a toothache than visit the dentist. Don't let the phobia about going to the dentist stop you from having beautiful healthy teeth. Sedation can be used for almost everything from oral surgery to routine teeth cleaning.
