We utilize the most safe and predictable methods of sedation dentistry.

IV Sedation

Dr. Black is certified in IV sedation dentistry. The use of IV sedation allows for the maximum level of comfort during your dental visit.  It is the safest and most predictable method of sedation.  IV sedation also allows for a greater amount of work to be done in a single visit, eliminating the need for multiple appointments. 

Schedule your consultation to see if you are a candidate for IV sedation.

Laughing Gas


Many patients don't feel the need for high levels of sedation during their dental visit, but want to escape the experience of being in the dental chair. Laughing gas is a method of sedation that has been used for decades in dentistry. Laughing gas allows for deep level of relaxation during your visit. Most people will still remember all of the events of their visit, and will not require having a ride home after your appointment. If you are anxious about your appointment, the use of laughing gas is a great way to escape the anxiety.

Oral Sedation


Oral sedation is a popular form of sedation for dentistry. With oral sedation, you will premedicate prior to your arrival for your appointment. The level of sedation with oral sedation varies greatly person to person, and many people are still alert and awake during the procedure.  Dr. Black recommends the use of IV sedation over oral sedation due to its more predictable level of sedation and comfort during your appointment.
