Does A Visit To The Dentist Make You Anxious?
That’s totally normal and we are here to help.

Sedation Dentistry could be just what you need. Sedation Dentistry, sometimes called Relaxation Dentistry, refers to the way a dentist manages a patient’s fear and anxiety during dental appointments. As a sedation dentist, Dr. Grenfell offers patients a safe form of conscious sedation known as Oral Sedation, when nitrous oxide (laughing gas) won't do the trick.

How do you know you're a good candidate for Sedation Dentistry?
  • You're afraid of needles, shots and pain.
  • Have bad memories of past dental visits.
  • You struggle with fear and anxiety.
  • You've got a sensitive gag reflex.
  • You often require several procedures done in a single visit.
  • You have difficulty sitting for long periods of time.
  • Your teeth are sensitive.
Oral sedation is the happy medium between nitrous oxide and IV sedation or general anesthesia.
With the help of a small pill our patients can be comfortably and minimally sedated through an entire dental visit.

It helps to eliminate the anxiety and pain sometimes associated with dental visits. Oral sedation is safe and effective and can be used with most dental procedures and by most patients over 16 years of age.
