One out of seven people suffer from some form of dental anxiety. These people may avoid going to the dentist, and often suffer severe consequences. Sedation dentistry with Dr. Monticciolo offers an alternative for people who are:

  • Too anxious to even make the first appointment
  • Need a dentist they can trust
  • Are in pain when they eat
  • Are overwhelmed with the thought of multiple visits
  • Who want to smile again with confidence

The Benefits

It’s Never Too Late to Start:

No matter your situation, we can help you turn back the hands of time. From broken teeth, to root canals and pain elimination, sedation dentistry can help you regain your health.

Take the Edge Off:

You are not the only one who faces anxiety at just the thought of going to the dentist. Fortunately, sedation dentistry leaves you relaxed and allows the dentists to accomplish multiple procedures.

Hours Seem Like Minutes:

Most people are hesitant about going to the dentist because of a negative past experience. Sedation has an amnesic effect meaning you’ll remember very little of your visit and the time will just seem to fly by. When your treatment is over, your companion will take you home and you’ll be amazed that the appointment is already over.
