Relaxing Dental Care with Sedation Dentistry

At Heritage Dental, we go to great lengths to help our patients relax. In doing so, we offer the latest sedation dentistry techniques during your procedures. Regardless of the severity of your dental fear or the level of your anxiety, you may benefit from the following options offered at our office:

  • Nitrous Oxide: Also known as laughing gas, this sweet-smelling gas is gently inhaled through a nosepiece to provide a heightened sense of relaxation, yet it allows patients to remain awake during their procedure. It is safe for all ages, and its effects wear off within minutes.
  • Oral Conscious Sedation: This sedation method is in pill form. It is great for patients with moderate to severe dental anxiety. You will take your prescribed medication just before your dental procedure so that you are completely relaxed and anxiety-free by the time you are in the dental chair.
  • The Wand: This is one of the latest advancements in dentistry. The Wand is a computer-controlled injection device that delivers a steady flow of anesthesia and provides a more comfortable numbing process.

Not only can we help you relax during your procedures, but we also provide modern patient amenities to make your experience enjoyable while you wait. Our lobby features complimentary refreshments as well as an Internet station and Wi-Fi. In our treatment rooms, you will find Netflix-enabled TV’s to keep you entertained and content. We do everything we can to make our dental office feel like home. After all, you deserve to experience dental care in the most comfortable and rewarding way possible.
