It is possible for you to be relaxed and comfortable during your appointment and to leave our office with no recollection of the treatment that we performed.

Dental Anxiety is Not Uncommon

If you experience anxiety at the thought of visiting the dentist, you are among 75% of Americans who feel this way. The important thing to consider is that avoiding a trip to the dentist may bring about a long-term decline in your oral health.

What is the Solution for Dental Anxiety?

Oral sedation has provided much-needed relief for tens of thousands of nervous patients. This helpful treatment can also help those with a sensitive gag reflex, those who experience difficulty in getting numb for a treatment, and patients who need to have multiple procedures done in one visit due to time constraints.

What is Sedation Dentistry?

Medications are used to ease anxiety and discomfort about being at the dentist’s office. The staff at Matthews Smiles will review your medical history and consider any medications that you are currently taking. This information will help them choose the best sedation option for you. The medications are safe and effective. To learn more about sedation dentistry visit our Sedation Learning Center.
