Most regular dental procedures can be performed while the patient is conscious, perhaps with a local anesthetic to numb the mouth. However, in cases where patients experience extreme fear or pain during cleanings and checkups, sedation can be used to ensure a more comfortable experience.
Dentistry with heart means caring for the whole patient — not just physically but emotionally as well. Our patients should never be uncomfortable or afraid in the dental chair. That’s why we’re proud to be certified for sedation dentistry. We can use a general anesthetic to put you to sleep while we perform the required dental care. You’ll awake refreshed and relaxed with a healthier, brighter smile.

new teeth fit great, look great, and nobody even knows they are dentures. I feel like a new woman!”
