Improve Your Dental Experiences with Sedation

Feeling nervous at the dentist’s office is common. However, millions of people struggle with a level of dental fear that’s keeps them from getting the routine care they need for a healthy smile. Because we take your oral health and comfort seriously, we’ve invested in the advanced training required to provide you with three options in dental sedation. We offer:

  • Inhaled Sedation – This sedation is safe for all ages, including children. You’ll feel its immediate calming effects before treatment begins. It’s just enough to take the edge off and ease mild to moderate dental anxiety.
  • Oral Sedation – Dr. Schope can prescribe medication prior to your visit, so you’re calm and comfortable just before your appointment. You will need to have someone drive you to and from your appointment, and you’ll feel deeply relaxed while you’re here.
  • IV Sedation – This is the strongest available form of sedation, so those with severe dental phobia can get the care they require. It even makes it easier to combine multiple procedures into one visit, so you don’t have to stress about coming back to complete your treatment plan.

We want you to always feel good about visiting us. That’s why we have amenities like TV monitors and headphones to help you feel at home, as well as numbing creams and local anesthesia when needed.
