Sedation Dentistry


Does going to the dentist make you feel nervousness or anxiety? Having dental anxiety can make it hard for many patients to make it to the dentist when they want, or especially need dental care.

We understand that going to the dentist can be a cause of stress for many people, and we can help you with your dental anxiety so you can get the care you need.

We believe that our patients deserve to receive proper dental care. To help our more nervous patients get the care they need, we offer sedation dentistry as an option to help them relax and be comfortable during their visit to our office.

If you are experiencing any of the following issues, sedation dentistry could be a great option for you:

  • You have sensitive teeth.
  • You require a lengthy or complicated procedure.
  • You have had uncomfortable dental visits in the past.
  • Your mouth does not numb easily.
  • The thought of dental work makes you feel anxiety or nervousness.

Dr. Chichetti and his team offer a couple of different sedation options to our patients. These sedation dentistry options can be a safe and effective way to help you get the dental care you need.

Our sedation options include:

Oral Conscious Sedation | With the assistance of a special oral conscious sedation pill you can be relaxed and comfortable during your visit. Our team will instruct you on how long before your procedure you will need to take the pill. This special sedative helps to ease anxiety and nervousness safely and effectively.

Nitrous Oxide | Nitrous oxide–commonly referred to as laughing gas–remains the most popular form of dental sedation across the country. It is a special gas that you inhale during your procedure. Nitrous oxide helps your body and mind relax, so that you can be comfortable and calm.
