Sedation Dentistry Experts Sedation may change everything you've ever thought about dentistry. A sedation dentistry appointment is completely different from a standard dental visit.

There's no anxiety and no fear. Patients tell us they felt no pain, and that the whole appointment just felt like a pleasant dream. Not what most people expect from a dental visit!
