Sedation Dentistry

Dental phobia can prevent you from seeing the dentist for important dental care, putting you at risk of serious oral health issues.

Dr. Peter Jeppsen offers sedation dentistry to help you relax during your next visit and get the dental treatment you want and need

Should you choose sedation during your next dental procedure?

Sedation Can Help You  Relax, Physically and Mentally

Feel More Comfortable

Local anesthesia prevents you from feeling any pain in the treatment area during your procedure. But other forms of sedation can help you feel tranquil and relaxed, creating an overall more pleasant experience in the dentist's chair.

Expedite Your Care

When you are relaxed, Dr. Jeppsen is able to perform treatments more efficiently. If you are a full mouth reconstruction or smile makeover patient, sedation allows him to complete multiple procedures during the same appointment, helping you achieve dramatic results faster.

Ease Your Fears

Many patients who have had traumatic dental experiences, have a sensitive gag reflex, or have trouble sitting still do not visit the dentist for years. By reducing anxiety, sedation can help you build a more positive association with dentistry and finally get the treatment you need. 

Different types of dental sedation are paired with local anesthesia...
