Relax Your Way to the Perfect Smile

Imagine you are in a beachside cabana, the Mai Tais are flowing, hand-delivered as a tropical percussion medley dances through your ears and a mild breeze tousles your hair. Or perhaps you are seated in first-class on a jet, champagne delivered to your private chambers as you travel across time zones, resting and relaxing your way to Dubai, London, or Paris.

Now, imagine having this sort of experience—in the dentist’s chair.

Perfect Teeth While You Dream

With sedation dentistry, you may even look forward to your dentist appointments—in fact, we really hope you do. Many of our patients can attest to having their severe dentophobia, or fear of the dentist, totally erased or even reversed by Dr. Glosman and his expert team.

Wake up with perfect teeth when you opt for sedation dentistry with Dr. Glosman. Multiple procedures can be done with sedation dentistry, limiting the number of visits to our dental studio. If you struggle with going to the dentist, we offer a new type of experience to shift what you think you know about a trip to the dentist’s chair.

Sedation Dentistry Candidates: Is Sedation Dentistry Right for You?

Dental anxiety, or “dentophobia”, is a common fear of going to the dentist. While we do everything we can to ensure you are as safe and comfortable as possible, we know that for those suffering from severe dentophobia, going to the dentist can still feel challenging and even nearly impossible. Sedation dentistry may be for you if you experience:

  • General dentophobia
  • Fear of needles
  • Sensitive teeth
  • Complications with Novocain and its effectiveness
  • Discomfort with the tastes and sounds affiliated with dental treatments
  • Or if your treatment requires an extended period of time

If any of these apply, you should inquire about sedation dentistry with Dr. Glosman.

What is Sedation Dentistry: The Easy Approach to Getting Dental Care

Sedation dentistry is a safe and effective way to help patients feel more comfortable and relaxed during dental procedures. Sedation dentistry consists of various methods available to provide comfort and ease to those who struggle with dental anxiety. There are different types of sedation dentistry available:

Oral sedation

Taking medication in pill form before your appointment to help you relax.

Nitrous oxide sedation

Also known as "laughing gas," this form of sedation is inhaled through a mask.

IV sedation

This type of sedation, also referred to as “sleep dentistry”, is administered directly into your bloodstream through an IV.

Dr. Glosman will work with you to determine which type of sedation is best for your specific needs, level of anxiety, and dental treatments being received. Note that if you need multiple treatments, sedation dentistry can allow several procedures to be done in one visit, allowing you to dream peacefully while we restore your star-quality smile.
