Sedation Dentist in Mill Valley, CA

Don’t let anxiety keep you from achieving your dream smile.

It’s time to reclaim your beautiful, healthy smile with sedation dentistry!

Are you one of the millions of Americans who suffers from dental anxiety? Does the thought of dental care stress you out? If so, our sedation team at Mill Valley Dentistry is here to help!

Sedation dentistry is designed to put patients at ease in the dentist’s chair. Laughing gas, for example, when inhaled leads to a feeling of calmness and serenity. Our team also offers oral sedatives (commonly called oral conscious sedation) to help you achieve an even deeper level of relaxation, without rendering you unconscious.

Our dental team has over 25 years of experience transforming smiles with the help of sedation dentistry.

Why do so many patients choose our Mill Valley sedation dentists?

Personalized Sedation Options

Our dental team provides a number of sedation options, so that we can address your exact situation and level of anxiety. Patients who are dental phobic, or those who are undergoing extensive, multi-phased treatment, may benefit from oral sedatives. Other patients find that nitrous oxide, otherwise known as laughing gas, is enough. We are here to explain all of your options, assess your needs, and help you with the appropriate type of relaxation treatment.

We Work With You

Dental anxiety can develop for a number of reasons: poor childhood experiences, chronic tooth sensitivity, a fear of feeling “out of control” in the dentist’s chair. The number one job of our dental team is to understand the root cause of your dental avoidance, and to meet you where you’re at. We believe that every one of our patients deserves to have a healthy, beautiful smile, and sedation dentistry can help you achieve just that.

Fast-Track Your Treatment

Our Mill Valley sedation dentists have found that, in many cases, using oral conscious sedation can actually speed up a patient’s treatment timeline. When you use sedation, you stay relaxed in the dentist’s chair, and you don’t become overwhelmed or fatigued. This allows our team to get more done in a shorter period of time. That’s why so many patients who pursue total smile transformations love oral sedation.
