Sedation Dentistry

If going to the dentist is stressful for you, we can ease your anxiety with comfortable methods such as oral conscious sedation or nitrous oxide (laughing gas).

  • Oral conscious sedation involves taking prescribed medication before a dental procedure to induce a relaxed state. 
  • Nitrous oxide, commonly known as laughing gas, is inhaled during treatment to reduce anxiety and discomfort. 

Both methods ensure a calm and comfortable experience, enabling patients to undergo necessary dental work while minimizing stress and pain. If you only use nitrous oxide for your procedure, you will be able to drive shortly after the procedure.

Endodontics and Root Canals

Endodontics deals with diseases of the tissue, blood vessels, and nerves inside the tooth. The most common endodontic treatment is called a “root canal,” a procedure used to remove infected tissue and refill the nerve canal inside the tooth.  A root canal allows you to retain your natural tooth while eliminating the infection.

We use the latest technological breakthroughs for root canal procedures, which allows us to perform quiet, comfortable, root canal therapy, usually in only one visit. 

Sleep Apnea Treatment

Our dentists can help identify the signs of sleep apnea during oral exams and provide sleep apnea treatment through oral appliance therapy. Custom oral devices are worn during sleep to reposition the jaw and keep the airway open, reducing snoring and improving breathing. This non-invasive approach offers a comfortable solution for mild to moderate sleep apnea, enhancing sleep quality and overall well-being—especially for those who do not tolerate traditional CPAP therapy well.

Wisdom Teeth Removal

Wisdom tooth removal is a routine dental procedure aimed at extracting third molars, commonly known as wisdom teeth. These teeth often emerge in ways that lead to pain, crowding, or misalignment. In most cases, one of our skilled dentists can perform the extraction(s) right here in our office, ensuring relief from discomfort and preventing potential oral health issues.

Tooth Extractions

Tooth extractions involve the gentle removal of a damaged, infected, or otherwise compromised tooth. Dentists perform this common procedure to alleviate pain, prevent infection, or create space prior to full-arch restorations or orthodontic treatment. Following extraction, proper care and consideration for replacement options—including dental implants, bridges, and dentures—ensure a healthy and functional smile.

TMJ Disorder Treatment

Our dentists offer TMJ disorder treatments through various methods. Customized oral appliances and lifestyle adjustments may help alleviate jaw pain, discomfort, and headaches. BOTOX® injections may also be employed to relax overactive jaw muscles. By addressing the underlying causes and promoting proper jaw alignment, our dentists can provide relief and improved quality of life for those affected by TMJ disorder.
