Sedation Dentistry

We understand that going to the dentist can be a dreaded and often stress-inducing experience. If you’re nervous about your dental visit, let us know! We offer many options for patients that need to feel more comfortable during their dental appointment. We make it our goal to make you as comfortable as possible throughout your visit – we offer music in headphones via Pandora, or movies and TV shows on Netflix! We also provide you with blankets and warm towels to make you feel first class. For patients with extreme anxiety, we offer additional options to make their experience more pleasant.

Nitrous oxide, or laughing gas, is an extremely common method for relieving mild to moderate anxiety. It is administered through a small mask over your nose, and will make you feel more calm and experience less pain. It will also make the time pass more quickly. At the end of your appointment, you will resume breathing oxygen and all the effects of nitrous oxide will disappear so you can resume normal daily activity shortly thereafter.

Oral sedation is another option for patients with anxiety regarding dental treatment. Taken in the form of a pill, oral sedation allows the patient to remain awake but in a very sleepy and relaxed state throughout the dental visit. You will be able to breathe on your own but have a deep sense of relaxation. Following the procedure, it may take several hours to fully recover from oral sedation and a driver is required for you to return safely to your home.

  • After coming from questionable dental services, Dr. Annie and the staff at Brush seem like a dream! I have been going here for a few years now and I completely trust Brush with my teeth as well as my family and friends'. They are very friendly, patient with questions, and take extra steps to fit their work to your unique needs

  • I went for my first visit today and everyone was super nice and informative, while willing to take time to listen and answer any questions I had. It was also extremely clean and they had Netflix, which is always a plus since I'm behind on Home of Cards and always forget to watch it.

  • Everyone was friendly and helpful. I got a lot of information and options. I don't have insurance and they were great about letting me know the costs before continuing. I'll be back.
