Tried Nitrous Oxide? Where To Go From Here?

Whatever the case, we would like to offer you some help with figuring out what to do now. Of course, we will also be happy to speak with you one-on-one about options the next time we see you.

Dental Sedation: Not Too Good To Be True

“Finally!” you think to yourself. “I’ve found a way that I can go to the dentist, thanks to dental sedation!” Then, of course, you start thinking about the fact that you haven’t seen a dentist in 25 years. Or, you have this nagging worry that you won’t qualify for sedation, so you realize you might not have actually found a solution. As a result, your joy turns to concern and you feel like you’re back and square one. We know that dental anxiety can make it extremely difficult to clear your mind and simply come in for care.
