Sedation Dentistry

Receive exceptional, anxiety-free dental care

If you have dental anxiety, you’re not alone. Half of the adults in the U.S. won’t visit a dentist because they feel uneasy. At First Choice Dental, our goal is to ensure that no one avoids going to the dentist due to fear. One powerful option for overcoming this hurdle and getting the care you need is sedation dentistry.

What is sedation dentistry

Sedation dentistry is a safe and effective way to have years of dental treatment completed in just one or two visits. For phobic patients, the ability to have a lot of needed treatment done in one appointment, or to visit the dentist without anxiety, is truly life-changing.

Our sedation dentists are experts trained to administer a small dose of medication that will help you relax throughout your dental appointment, with little or no memory of the procedure.

Is sedation dentistry right for you?

Sedation dentistry may be right if you…

  • Regularly cancel dentist appointments due to apprehension.
  • Have put off dental treatment for a long time and are overdue for significant dental care.
  • Have a lot of fear about going to the dentist.
  • Have had traumatic dental experiences in the past.
  • Have ever been told that you aren't "yourself" before or during a dental visit, due to stress or anxiety.

How it works

  • At your free sedation dentistry consultation, you and your sedation dentist will outline your plan for dental treatment and schedule your treatment.
  • Your sedation dentist will prescribe you two pills—one to take at night before your appointment, and the other to take the morning of your dental appointment.
  • Patients are assessed when they arrive at the office for their appointment and more meds may be given at that time.
  • You will arrive for your dental appointment ready for an anxiety-free appointment where you can get the dental care you need.
