We’re proud to be able to offer Relaxation Dentistry, an option that lets us perform procedures while you sleep lightly. If you’re a fearful or very busy patient, Relaxation Dentistry often lets us attend to all your dental needs in just one or two visits. After an initial consultation, we’ll schedule you to take a medication called Lorazepam just prior to your appointment. A friend transports you to and from the office. While you are here, you’ll be relaxed and drowsy, but thoroughly responsive. We also offer you nitrous oxide and audio entertainment options. Our Relaxation Dentistry team monitors you closely throughout the procedure. Best of all, you’ll be done with dentistry for a while, and feel comfortable when you return home.
