We also offer relaxation techniques and sedation dentistry for our patients’ ultimate comfort. For children, we follow an effective and successful protocol called “Tell-Show-Do” which familiarizes them to the process, sights, smells, sounds, and feelings that may be involved in any procedure. Tell-Show-Do helps children to feel more in control and avoids any surprises or new experiences which might be unsettling.


Sedation dentistry is sometimes referred to as sleep dentistry; however, it rarely involves putting a patient under heavy anesthesia. Nitrous oxide or oral conscious sedation are mild pharmacologic treatments that simply slow down the central nervous system for a short period of time. Patients may be aware of their surroundings and able to communicate but will feel less anxious or uncomfortable. Sedation dentistry can help patients in a number of instances, including:

  • Undergoing lengthy or complex reconstructive procedures
  • Dealing with gag reflex or limited personal space
  • Overcoming dental phobia or anxiety
  • Reducing pain or discomfort
