Sedation Dentistry

Sedation Dentistry for Nervous Patients

Many people are afraid of going to the dentist, or had a traumatic dental experience in the past. At 5 Mile Smiles, there is no need to fear. Dr. Keefe’s gentle chairside manner and sense of humor will put you at ease. If that isn’t enough, we also offer oral sedation options for mild to severe anxiety!

At 5 Mile Smiles, we don’t want our patients to go without the treatment they need because they dread scheduling an appointment. Our effective sedation dentistry options are here to ensure your dental visit is one that you don’t have to stress about. We have options available that can work well for all of our patients who experience dental anxiety.

Oral Sedation

If you suffer from dental anxiety, Dr. Keefe may recommend oral sedation. These anti-anxiety pills tone down activity in the parts of your brain that cause you to feel anxious or afraid. We offer both a light and a heavy sedation option, depending on your needs.

Remember, if you take oral sedation, you cannot drive before or after your appointment. Bring a friend or family member with you to make sure you arrive and get back home safely following your appointment.

5 Mile Smiles is the dentist near you that can help keep your smile beautiful – even if it takes a little extra help from our well tolerated sedation techniques!
