There’s nothing wrong with wanting to be comfortable, during your dental appointment so don’t hesitate to ask us about the wide range of sedation dentistry options to ensure your visit is pain and anxiety free.
Sedation Dentistry Methods
Dr. Cohen uses the safest procedures for pain and anxiety-free dentistry, including Nitrous Oxide sedation (Laughing Gas), Oral Sedation medication and General Anesthesia. All our sedation dentistry procedures are safety-focused and approved by the American Dental Association.
Nitrous oxide sedation (Laughing Gas) is a very safe and effective way to reduce anxiety during your dental visit. Unlike other forms of sedation, you will be able to drive once the affects have worn off.
For the ultimate in comfort and relaxation and to completely eliminate the discomfort from longer procedures general anesthesia is the way to go. After your initial examination, if we determine that you are a candidate for the procedure then we will bring in a licensed Anesthesiologist to assure that you will be completely pain and anxiety free. Let us know at the time of your appointment if you are considering this option of anesthesia.
