Are you...
Delaying treatment

Having trouble finding someone you can trust? Looking to smile again with confidence? Overwhelmed by thoughts of repeated visits to the dentist?

Relaxation Dentistry may be your answer!

Which patients benefit the most from sedation?

  • People with high dental anxiety and fear of the dentist
  • Those with a severe gag reflex
  • Those with time constraints -- who need to get more dentistry done in fewer visits
  • Patients with chronic or acute jaw soreness
  • Or physical limitations such as back and neck problems
  • People who have difficulty getting numb
  • Those who need extensive treatment
  • And people with a desire to have dentistry done comfortably while they are fully relaxed

If you have ever been afraid to go to the dentist, you know the unbearable terror that comes with stepping foot into a dental office. You avoid receiving treatment at any cost, regardless if you are in pain or discomfort.

It's important to remember that dentistry has come a long way. Countless years of research have been dedicated to studying and finding methods to alleviate pain and anxiety. There are safe and time-tested options available to ensure that you have a positive and pain free dentistry experience.

The use of sedation dentistry drugs can make your time in the dental office relaxed and comfortable. Increased access to advanced training on how to use these medications has made it easier for more dentists to provide this service and easier for patients to find a dentist who does.

You are not alone and the stories of people like you, who have avoided the dentist as a result of past trauma, are limitless. Relaxation dentist understand your fears. Talk to your relaxation dentist about your fears and concerns. He or she is there to help and can better treat you if they know how you feel.

Sedation practices are designed to make you comfortable. Whatever your concern, they take great efforts to make the experience new and comfortable. In some offices you will enter to the smell of fresh cookies baking or scented candles, others will have portable music devices such as iPodsTM so you can "tune out" the sounds. Consultation rooms can take you out of the treatment room so that you can talk about getting the smile you want.

I invite you to experience dentistry like you've never experienced it before. Step out from under the shadow of fear and into the calm of relaxation dentistry.

You are not alone and you no longer have to be afraid. Call today!

Join the millions of people just like you and experience Sedation or Anxiety-free Dentistry's relaxed, easy state where dentistry can be accomplished in just a few visits, in the most comfortable way possible.

What is a Sedation Experience Like?


When you are afraid, your threshold for pain is much lower. You become hypersensitive to every sensation, prick, and noise. Fear and dental anxiety trigger the release of certain chemicals in your brain which put your "fight or flight" instincts on high alert. You anticipate that something is going to hurt and so you tense your muscles, even if it is subconsciously. Patients who have a fear of the dentist often experience more pain during and after their procedure. However that can virtually be eliminated with relaxation dentistry! The whole purpose of an anxiety free dentistry or a relaxation dentistry is to make you as comfortable and relaxed as possible to make a pain free dentistry appointment. It allows you to let your guard down, relax both your mind and body, and focus on feeling peaceful rather than anxious. Your apprehension and hypersensitivity to pain melts away.

Ask yourself - is relaxation dentistry right for me?
