Take Advantage of Sedation Options & Cozy Amenities for a Stress-Free Smile

For total relaxation and peace of mind, you’ll find two great sedation options:

  • Inhaled Sedation – Laughing gas will immediately begin to calm your nerves after you breathe it in. This sweet-smelling gas gives you an all-over feeling of relaxation and slight euphoria. It works extremely well for mild dental anxiety.
  • Oral Conscious Sedation – With a small pill you’ll take before your treatment, you’ll feel completely relaxed by the time you get to our dental chair. You may not remember much about your appointment afterward.

At The Smile Center, we know how to put our patients at ease. We offer you several comforting amenities that are sure to help you feel right at home:

Common Questions About Relieving Dental Anxiety

Can you help with relieving dental anxiety?

Of course! The first step is sharing your anxious feelings and their possible causes, such as prior negative experiences at the dentist or past difficulties in getting numb for procedures. Once we know your issues, we can work with you on strategies to alleviate them. Many patients also find relief by taking advantage of one of our methods of dental sedation: laughing gas or oral medication.

What can you do to relieve dental anxiety?

Dr. Miller and our team will take time to listen to your needs. We’ll also answer all your questions fully, making sure you have the information you need to make good decisions about your oral care. In addition, we can administer sedation that will put you in a relaxed state so you can rest easy during your visit.

Are there steps at home I can take to relieve dental anxiety?

We believe that a relaxing visit begins at home. If you start to feel anxious about your procedure, simply let your body go limp and take several deep breaths slowly. Picture yourself lying comfortably in our dental chair, fully relaxed and at peace. Then, when you’re actually in the office, you can use this same technique to help ease any residual anxiety.
