Sedation Dentistry

Enjoy a Stress-Free Visit!

Patient happy that Dr. Brad Tiner believes that everyone deserves a beautiful smile, including patients who suffer from dental anxietyRegular dental check-ups, including cleanings and preventative treatments, are vital for good oral health. For nearly one in ten Americans, dental anxiety prevents them from getting the treatment and care their smile needs. When fear keeps you from the dentist, oral concerns go untreated, becoming more extensive and expensive problems in the future. At Dentistry By Design, we have several sedation and comfort options to help you get the care you need! We recommend sedation…

  • To complete more complicated procedures in a single appointment
  • For patient comfort during more complex treatments
  • For patients who experience mild to severe dental phobia
  • To create the most positive, relaxed dental visit possible

Oral Sedation

Dr. Brad Tiner believes that everyone deserves a beautiful smile, including patients who suffer from dental anxiety. With a simple oral medication, you can feel your fears diminish and your muscle tension ease. One of the great benefits of oral sedatives is that they can be taken the moment your anxiety surfaces, providing quick relief. Your dose can also be adjusted to ensure your overall comfort. Please note that when using oral sedation, you will need to have someone drive you to and from your appointment.

Complimentary Nitrous Oxide for Any Procedure

Dental anxiety is never a laughing matter, but with the help of nitrous oxide, commonly known as laughing gas, your experience of dental procedures can be relaxed and positive. Administered through a soft nosepiece, you’ll inhale this sedative gas by breathing naturally. Very quickly, you’ll notice a warm, tingly sensation throughout your body, allowing your mind to float free of any concerns. While you’ll still remain aware and responsive, your anxieties will diminish and you’ll feel relaxed for your treatment. Once your procedure is completed, the nitrous oxide gas will be replaced with oxygen and you’ll feel like normal within a few minutes.

Kid-Friendly Dental Care

If you’re a parent, then you know the magic of a good cartoon. When there’s some unpleasant task to be completed, like taking out the trash or cleaning up toys, a cartoon has the amazing ability to make the average child completely unaware of what’s going on around them (even Mom’s voice calling to them). We apply this same principle to our pediatric dental care. With a set of headphones, nitrous oxide, and a great show, we can help your child have a more pleasant dental visit with “Cartoon Sedation.” It’s the perfect kid-friendly distraction for our younger patients, allowing them to relax and enjoy their appointment.

The Wand

Do needles make you nervous? Dr. Tiner uses the latest advancements, without the big syringes, to ensure you have a pleasant dental procedure. Utilizing a computer-assisted injection tool called The Wand, anesthetic is administered with a pen like device. Relax as the numbing agent is delivered more comfortably, more precisely and more easily than before.
