How Anxiety-Free Dentistry Works
Dental fear doesn't exist at Lakeville Dental Associates with our many relaxation options.

If you’ve been putting a dentist visit off for too long because of your fear, then sedation dentistry may be for you. Your oral health is so important and affects your overall health, so it’s essential that you visit the dentist twice a year or as needed for maintenance and dental work.

Options include oral sedation, which is a pill you take before your appointment, and nitrous oxide. Your dentist will help you decide which option is best for you, after discussing your medical history. You will be conscious for all procedures but comfortable and much less anxious.

Not going to the dentist can cost you more money, time, and stress in the long run. An untreated dental problem can become a big issue if ignored. Let us help you maintain or fix your teeth and gums and help you feel at ease with sedation dentistry at Lakeville, MN.
