Sedation Options for Every Need

Dental anxiety stems from a variety of factors. Traumatic past experiences, a sensitive gag reflex or the need for extensive treatment are common reasons people feel anxious about visiting the dentist. We offer a number of sedation options to erase those fears, no matter the procedure you’re undergoing. With 23 years of experience, Dr. Robert Janisse is a trusted source for helping you choose the right option to overcome dental anxiety. He is also certified to administer IV moderate sedation. This is a huge advantage when it comes to getting the care your family needs.
Our sedation options include:

  • Oral Sedation

    With this method, you take a prescription sedative medication prior to your visit. You remain awake throughout your procedure and able to respond to instructions.

  • IV Conscious Sedation

    Dr. Janisse administers sedative medication intravenously. While you remain “conscious” during your visit, you typically have no memory of the procedure.  Most patients feel as though they “slept” through the entire procedure.

  • Local Anesthetic

    This method of numbing treatment areas is almost always combined with other sedation options.

Enjoy Pain-Free Dental Experience

Our relaxing sedation options can be used to provide anxiety relief for nearly any procedure. Sedation is life-changing for people of all ages. Patients routinely report high satisfaction when they experience comfortable, pain-free dental procedures. For most, this changes their entire outlook on dental care, letting them look forward to their visits! Getting the dental care your family needs improves oral health and creates beautiful, confident smiles.
