Relief For Your Dental Anxiety in Reno, NV

Feel Relaxed and Safe

Sedation Dentistry is a technique that can be used when you or your loved one suffers from dental anxiety or dental phobia. We are happy to offer a solution for our patients to make their dental visit as comfortable as possible. Sedation dentistry techniques enable patients who might otherwise avoid the dentist, to receive dental treatment necessary for a healthy smile. Depending on the extent of the anxiety or phobia, varying degrees of dental sedation can be utilized as described below.

Local anesthetic involves numbing a specific part of your mouth so we can perform a procedure without you having to go under. We often use local sedation for cavity fillings and similar procedures. We want to make sure your visit is as comfortable as possible.

Moderate sedation usually comes in the form of a pill. This medication can be given to a patient the night before a dentistry procedure or 30 minutes to an hour prior to the dental appointment, depending on the severity of the anxiety.
