Sedation Dentistry
Family Dentist in Pittsford, NY

Do You Have Dental Anxiety?

Some people get very nervous about visiting the dentist. In fact, some folks avoid having necessary preventive care and procedures due to anxiety! At Village Smiles Family Dentistry in Pittsford, NY, we want to ensure that you receive the care you need for a happy, healthy mouth. We offer sedation dentistry so you can receive gentle dental treatment comfortably.

Sedation Dentistry

For patients that are anxious about receiving dental care or those who are undergoing multiple or more complex procedures, sedation dentistry can make the process much easier. You can receive your care without worry and in total comfort. Sedation dentistry may take the form of a pill taken before your visit or nitrous oxide during your procedure.

Nitrous Oxide, often known as laughing gas, is a gas administered through a nasal mask. This gas helps to reduce anxiety and remain in a relaxed state. Nitrous oxide is also excellent at helping to reduce and eliminate gag reflex issues.
