Relax & Leave All Your Cares at the Door

At The Smile Center, we believe that dentistry should be as comfortable as possible. No matter how anxious you are about your visit with us, we’ll do our best to help you relax. You can take advantage of a warm, cozy blanket or a soft pillow to help you feel right at home. Our patient care rooms also feature ceiling-mounted TVs and headphones.

We understand, though, that some patients need a little extra help to fully relax. That’s why we offer two great dental sedation options. We’ll discuss both in detail with you so you can decide which one you’d like to use. Your options include:

  • Laughing Gas – This is our mildest form of sedation, also called inhaled sedation. After breathing in the gas through a comfortable mask, you’ll almost immediately begin to feel relaxed. The sedative may even make you slightly giddy. Pretty soon, the idea of dental work won’t bother you at all. Afterward the effects wear off quickly, and you’ll have no problem driving yourself home.
  • Oral Conscious Sedation – This sedative in pill form is perfect for patients with more severe anxiety. The easy-to-swallow pill will give you a feeling of total relaxation. You likely will have little or no memory of your procedure. Dr. John Miller has completed advanced training with the Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation in order to offer this to you. He will consider your medical history, among other factors, before recommending it. A friend or family member will need to drive you home, as the pill’s effects will take a few hours to diminish.

Sit back and relax with our Georgetown sedation options. Call us today to schedule a pleasant dental experience: 843-492-5026. You can also schedule online.
