Our Serene Treatment Environment

The first step in helping our patients overcome dental anxiety is creating a peaceful environment. To achieve this, we ensure that every aspect of your visit, from the friendly staff to the environment is calming and relaxing. In addition to offering you sedation options, We use noise-canceling headphones to block the sound of the tools used by the dentist. Dark glasses are also available to protect your eyes and keep you blissfully unaware of the procedure. After your treatment, a warm, lavender-scented towel will give you the blissful feeling that you have taken good care of yourself.

What Is Laughing Gas?

Sedation mask

Minimally Inhaled Sedation

Minimally inhaled sedation uses nitrous oxide to help relax you. It is a colorless, non-flammable gas that produces an euphoric effect, hence the nickname, laughing gas.

Under sedation

How It's Used

A plastic mask will be placed over your nose and mouth. You will simply breathe normally as the gas fills the mask.
