Are You Feeling Nervous?

Find real relief from dental anxiety with our sedation options in our spa-like office.

If going to the dentist makes you anxious or scared, you are not alone. Dental fears are very common and, here at Innovative Dentistry, we genuinely enjoy helping individuals overcome their dental anxiety and truly enjoy their visits.

Rest assured, we will not judge the condition of your teeth and gums. We’re here to help you achieve the smile you’ve always wanted!

The first thing we will do is to listen and ask:

  • What are your fears?

  • What are your needs?

  • What would you like to see?

Together we will decide what treatment is needed and how we can best help you through your dental visits.

Your Sedation Options

Making your dental appointment painless and comfortable.

Nitrous Oxide

Nitrous oxide is provided through a nose hood and is administered throughout the entire procedure. Nitrous oxide elevates the general mood and can evoke an overall sense of well-being. Most importantly, it relieves anxiety and reduces pain during the procedure. You are able to drive yourself to and from each appointment when nitrous oxide is used.

Oral Conscious Sedation

Oral medication is provided prior to treatment, and then nitrous oxide is added to induce a more profound state of sedation. You are still “awake,” but your senses are dulled. This means that most patients cannot remember the pain, smells, or noises associated with the dental procedure. You will need a driver to and from the appointment when oral medication is used.

IV Sedation

Patients who have previously experienced IV sedation report feeling like they slept through the entire procedure. A treatment taking several hours will feel like minutes when you are sedated. This type of sedation is typically used for longer procedures or more complicated oral surgeries, but can also be used for simple fillings or even cleanings. You will need a driver to and from the appointment with IV sedation.

Very polite and friendly staff. Special thank you to Edie, who was very friendly and patient with my x-rays. Straightforward team of professionals and I am extremely happy with using their services .

This Dentist office is excellent. I had gone to another dentist in the city and they suggested I schedule multiple filling replacements, which was surprising... I made an appointment at Innovative and they said those were unnecessary. The staff is incredibly professional and thorough. Highly recommend!

Super friendly staff, beautiful office, and highly competent and caring dentists. Dr. Tremblay insists on the highest standards for dental care which is evident both in his own practice and in the quality of the specialists he recommends. I went to Innovative Dentistry for some severe pain that was caused by a failed root canal someone else had done 5 years earlier. After referring me to an endodontist (who is also fabulous), Dr. Tremblay talked through the options with me and I decided that having the tooth extracted sounded like the best course of action. I was fairly nervous about the procedure, but Dr. Tremblay was very thorough both in preparing me for what was going to happen and in making sure I (and my husband since I was a little woozy afterwards 🙂 ) were all set for the after-care process. I have nothing but great things to say about my experience at Innovative Dentistry. (The dental hygienist was also wonderful, but I can't remember her name.)

The staff is beyond friendly and super diligent. Dr. Tremblay is meticulous in his work, always making sure everything is perfect before I get out of the chair. Moreover, he shows genuine concern for both my comfort during procedures and satisfaction with the outcome. This is by far the best dental practice I have ever been to.

I have only received excellent care here. The staff are friendly and professional, plus they really care about your comfort and the integrity of your teeth. They're open and honest about what your mouth needs to be healthy and I've never felt pressured into paying for anything extraneous (I've actually been discouraged from seeking out cosmetic treatments). I wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone who is either afraid of the dentist or just wants the best for their teeth!
