Relax and improve your health and your smile

Sedation dentistry is available in various levels, offering a comfortable solution for every patient. If you have not been to the dentist in years because of your anxiety, schedule a consultation with Dr. Titus to learn more. Sedation dentistry options include:

  • Nitrous oxide: inhaling a colorless, odorless gas can completely relax you. nitrous oxide is safe and effective, delivering a temporary feeling of euphoria that lasts throughout your procedure. many patients prefer this method because the effects wear off rapidly, allowing you to drive yourself home or return to work after your visit.
  • Oral sedation: Dr. Titus can also prescribe an oral sedative for you. halcion is a commonly prescribed pill that may be taken before your visit in order to give you a relaxed, groggy feeling. with this method, you may sleep right through the entire procedure.
  • Local anesthetic: lidocaine is typically injected into the treatment site to numb the area where dr. titus will be working. this blocks any pain or discomfort, ensuring a stress-free visit.

You can have a healthy, brilliant smile without anxiety or discomfort from a skilled dentist. we invite you to review our patient testimonials and see the results we can help you achieve
