Confidence to Pursue Dental Care

Patients with even mild dental anxiety may find it difficult to follow through with their dental appointments. For those with severe dental fears, avoiding the dentist can have disastrous effects on their oral and overall health. Without the necessary preventive dental care, minor issues will continue to worsen over time and oral health issues like oral cancer and gum disease can go undetected. Sedation dentistry is one way we help our patients with dental anxiety receive the dental care they need to enjoy a healthy, beautiful smile. When you are calm and relaxed, your dental experiences are more enjoyable, more comprehensive care can be completed, and you can feel confident about receiving dental care from now on!

Calming Care from IV Sedation-Certified Dentists

IV conscious sedation is a stronger and safe sedation option that provides the accurate level of relaxation for each of our unique patients, especially for those with severe dental anxiety. IV sedation is one of our most versatile sedation dentistry options. Because this form of sedation is administered intravenously, we can easily monitor and make adjustments to ensure the most effective level of comfort for you. While you are not asleep, you are in a deeply relaxed state that leaves you with no memory of the procedure, though you are able to respond and follow directions. We offer IV sedation at our Wilmington location and, if necessary, we will refer you there to receive this level of sedation from our certified team.

Oral Sedation

patient taking oral sedation
Oral sedation is taken as a pill an hour before the appointment. Oral sedation is effective at providing comfortable relaxation for patients with mild-to-moderate dental anxiety. Sedation levels wear off slowly and require that the patient be transported to and from their appointment.

IV Conscious Sedation

IV sedation is administered through the veins and can be regulated for optimal comfort level. IV sedation is commonly used during more complex dental procedures and for patients who have moderate-to-severe dental anxiety. Sedation levels cease once IV stops being administered and has little-to-no aftereffects.

Local Anesthesia

Local anesthesia is used to numb treatment sites during simple procedures or in conjunction with stronger sedation options to maximize comfort.
