Sedation Dentistry Puts Fears to Rest
If you have dental anxieties or fears, we want you to know that you are not alone. Dental anxiety is very common—affecting nearly 40 million Americans! Avoiding the dentist out of fear or anxiety is never a good thing as conditions can simply worsen over time. To help patients calm their nerves, our team of doctors and compassionate staff offer sedation dentistry in Everett, MA. Our sedation dentistry is customized to your specific needs, and options range from oral sedation to local anesthetic, all of which are designed to maximize your level of relaxation and comfort, while also preventing you from experiencing discomfort. Our caring team is experienced in helping patients with dental anxiety overcome their fears and get the dental care they need with a little help from sedation dentistry.
Sedation Dentistry Customized to You
Oral sedation is taken as a pill prior to your appointment and can help you feel calm and relaxed during the visit, though you can still respond to our doctors.
We use local anesthetic for virtually every treatment because it numbs the area where we will be performing treatment. We commonly combine local anesthetic with oral sedation for improved pain control.
Why Patients Enjoy Their Sedation Experience
Sedation dentistry is beneficial for reasons beyond just easing anxiety and blocking discomfort. One of the most valuable reasons to receive sedation is to allow our doctors to provide adequate dental care.
