At our Rochester cosmetic and general dentistry office, our experienced dental team offers sedation dentistry for patients who need a little extra comfort and relaxation to cope with the anxiety that can often be associated with dental appointments.

You might be a candidate for our sedation dentistry services if:

  • You are comfortable using mild sedatives like diazepam (valium) or triazolam (Halcion)
  • You have overwhelming anxiety caused by dental treatments or medical settings
  • You suffer from an acute fear of needles
  • Your gag reflex is strong
  • You have trouble with numbing treatments
  • You have physical limitations in the neck, jaw or back that might affect the procedure
  • You need to complete an extensive series of treatments in a single visit

If you are a viable candidate for sedation dentistry, it can be administered to you for a range of dental procedures and treatments including:

  • Routine check-ups and dental cleanings
  • Tooth repairs and replacements
  • Cosmetic dentistry procedures
