GENERAL DENTISTRY . . .
Dentistry can be a relaxing day at the beach. Wait, what? Yes, it can be. We can utilize nitrous oxide or oral conscious sedation combined with your favorite show or Island tunes. You'll never know that you're in the dental chair.
Dr. Smitherman and her team will make sure that you are comfortable every step of the way.
Commonly known as "laughing gas"
Gives tingly sensation in extremities and feeling of floating
No need for an escort or ride
Oral Conscious Sedation
Medication (Triazolam) given in office 1 hour before dental appointment
Combined with nitrous to provide "twilight sleep" type sedation
What You Need to Know about Sedation
Nitrous oxide is safe for all patients except those that are pregnant or have COPD.
Oral Conscious sedation can be used in the majority of patients. Dr. Smitherman will review your medical history and determine the best type of sedation for your specific needs.
Our goal is for our patients to feel comfortable and taken care of. We will go above and beyond for you to have a relaxing dental visit, from the chapstick on your lips to a soft blanket to warm up with.
