Why Sedation?


With the advances in modern dentistry many people have become comfortable with going to the dentist, but there still remains a large number of people who have fear with dental visit.  Some people fear the idea of getting a shot, while others fear the sound of the drill.  The list goes on and on, but thankful there is a solution to that fear regardless of its source.  At Dental & Implant Center of Fresno we are among a handful of local dental offices qualified and certified to provide you with nitrous oxide, oral sedation or IV sedation.  Regardless of the type of procedure or your leave of anxiety, we have an option that will best fit your need. 


Who might need or desire sedation?

Have you had a bad experience in the past that has been keeping you away from the dentist?

Do you have a hard time sitting still for a long time?

Is the idea of dental work just stressful?

Do you need a lot of dental treatment at once?


Many people fear a visit to the dentist. Some fear it because they cringe at the thought of being lectured regarding the state of their teeth. Others would simply prefer to endure the aches and pains of a cavity or toothache rather than experience what they expect to be unbearable pain while undergoing even a simple cleaning.
