We understand that while most people do not look forward to their next visit to the dentist, some completely avoid seeing a dentist out of fear even if they are in pain. The longer they delay dental care, the bigger the problem becomes. If you are anxious or fearful of the dentist, you are not alone! In addition to having very gentle dentists and hygienists, Essence Dental Aurora offers sedation services to help put you at ease so that we can address your dental needs comfortably.


What is sedation dentistry?

Sedation dentistry is the use of medications to help people relax during and after their dental appointment and can be used for anything from a teeth cleaning to more complicated procedures. It can either be in the form of a pill or liquid that patients would take before their appointment or in the form of nitrous oxide gas (also known as laughing gas) that they would inhale during the appointment to significantly reduce their anxiety.
