Anxious Patients


Through the modern miracle of sedation dentistry, dentists can treat anxious patients and often accomplish dental work in one or two visits that may have required many more visits without it. Conscious sedation and general anesthesia are two approaches used at our office to treat anxious, young and fearful patients.

Candidates for Sedation dentistry include:

  • Infants
  • Children that have very extensive dental needs
  • The very apprehensive child
  • Children that have a very strong gag reflex
  • Children that have had traumatic dental experiences
  • Children that do not like the sounds and smells associated with dental care
  • The medically compromised child
  • The mentally handicapped child
