Sedation Options

Whether you’re just a bit nervous about a filling or very anxious about other dental treatments, we can help you feel comfortable and relaxed during your visit.

Nitrous Oxide Sedation

Nitrous oxide sedation uses a nose mask that sends a steady stream of nitrous oxide (laughing gas) into your lungs. No pills or needles are involved. Nitrous oxide sedation is a simple, effective way to stay comfortable during treatment.

Light Anxiolytics

With light anxiolytics, you’ll take a mild anti-anxiety medication before your appointment. You will have a pleasant and relaxed experience with little memory of the dental procedures. Eliminate anxiety and pain safely!

IV Sedation

As the deepest form of sedation we offer, IV sedation delivers a sedative into a vein in your arm, taking effect right away for rapid relaxation. We have partnered with board-certified anesthesiologists to provide comfortable sedation that safely eliminates anxiety and pain.With IV sedation, any dental treatment is within your reach. Wake up with a smile you’ve always envisioned.

Relax In The Dentist’s Chair

Nitrous Oxide (Laughing Gas) sedation

With nitrous oxide sedation, you can relax during your appointment. Along with local numbing, laughing gas makes it much easier to receive treatment. With minimal side effects, laughing gas wears off within about five minutes, so you can get back to work, school, or your daily routine after your appointment.

Light Anxiolytics

Get Comfortable Care

We offer mild anxiolytic service at our office. This means you’ll take anti-anxiety medication before your appointment. You will be sleepy and relaxed. You will, however, remain responsive and able to verbalize your needs and wants during treatment. You’ll need to arrange for someone to drive you to and from your appointment. Your fears and anxieties will disappear, so you can sit back and relax while you get the expert care your smile deserves.

IV Sedation

Wake Up with a Smile

Intravenous (IV) sedation delivers sedatives directly into a vein in your arm. IV sedation allows for the rapid effect to produce adequate relaxation and comfort. We have partnered with board-certified anesthesiologists to provide comfortable sedation in a safe environment. With IV sedation, any dental treatment is within your reach. Anyone who has fear and anxiety about dental treatment is a candidate. If you have a strong gag reflex or have put off dental care for years, give us a call. Not only can multiple procedures be done efficiently in one appointment, but many of our patients report they remember little to nothing about their appointment by the next day. Wake up with a smile you’ve always envisioned.

In Their Own Words

I had a new tooth and implant installed by Dr. Kim and I am so thrilled with his work and his staff. They were most caring and accommodating to my needs. I hate any type of pain and Dr. Kim made sure that I did not feel any discomfort and his assistant Jenn is extremely nice and professional. I could not be happier with Dr. Kim and his staff. I highly recommend them for your dental needs.

Dr. Chris and his team are excellent. I had a crown installed and it was a very easy/comfortable experience. Dr.Chris is extremely knowledgeable but also has a very pleasant demeanor. The entire office is a well run, professional, and friendly operation. I am thankful I found a great dentist so close to my home. I would highly recommend.

I had to have two crowns created and installed and Dr. Chris completed the process today. Dr. Chris and his assistant were a well experienced and efficient team. Dr. Chris kept me informed throughout the process on he was doing and why he was doing it and I had no discomfort at all, during the prep visit and the finishing visit today.
