We do our best to ensure the comfort and safety of our patients. We know it’s not always easy for you to relax during a dental visit, and you’re not the only one! Research indicates that dental fears prevent more than 30% of the population from seeking appropriate dental care.
You can count on an anxiety-free experience with Dr. Voto. Our compassionate dental team will prepare you for treatment, and if needed, you can take advantage of our sedation services.
You may benefit from sedation dentistry if:
Whatever your reason may be for choosing sedation dentistry, we will always be able to accommodate you. For your convenience, we offer oral sedation and nitrous oxide sedation.
For this service, you arrive an hour before your scheduled appointment and take a sedative. We’ll make you comfortable in one of our state-of-the-art treatment rooms and monitor your vital signs. When you reach optimum relaxation, we will begin your procedure. If you choose oral sedation, we ask that you have someone to drive you home after your treatment is completed.
Nitrous oxide is also known as “laughing gas.” Prior to your treatment, we place a small inhaler over your nose. As you breathe in the nitrous oxide, you’ll begin to feel an overall sense of warmth and wellbeing. Some patients also experience numbness and tingling. This sedation option has no lasting side effects.
