Patient comfort is one of the most important aspects of care. Different patients have different needs for pain and anxiety control medication. Depending upon the procedure and your wishes, there are many medications we can prescribe.

While no dental procedure is 100% comfortable, we try to minimize any discomfort you might feel. Many of our patients make statements like, "This wasn't even painful.  How did you do that?"  The following are some of the latest techniques we use to provide you with as comfortable an experience as possible:

Local Anesthesia

We use a topical anesthetic on your gums first to desensitize them and then administer the local anesthetic very slowly and precisely to reduce the burning sensation that can be experienced.


For those patients who would feel more comfortable with sedation, we offer nitrous oxide, oral sedation and IV conscious sedation to help you relax during your treatment.

IV Conscious Sedation

Sedative medications can be administered intravenously.  Your periodontist gives just enough medication to make you relaxed and comfortable. You are carefully monitored, and additional medication can be easily given throughout the procedure to ensure your sustained comfort.

Your comfort is one of our primary concerns. If you have any questions about sedation, please do not hesitate to discuss these with us.

Patient Safety

We adhere to the highest professional standards of cleanliness, sterilization, and radiation control. Our staff regularly attend safety seminars and are knowledgeable on the latest techniques.
