Each and every time you visit our dental office, our team of caring professionals works hard to ensure you have a positive, comfortable experience. We recognize that many of our patients, young and old alike, have fears and phobias when it comes to visiting the dentist. Whether it is the sounds and smells of our office or the fear of needles and more detailed treatments, we offer high-quality sedation dentistry in Royal Oak, Michigan, to help you feel relaxed and pain-free. Sedation dentistry encompasses the many sedation and anesthesia techniques utilized at our office, including I.V. sedation.

I.V. sedation, often referred to as sleep dentistry, is the direct administration of a drug into your bloodstream to produce a state of deep relaxation and comfort. While I.V. sedation is not designed to put you to sleep or “put you under,” many of our patients feel so good that they fall asleep or experience a form of memory loss, not remembering a thing that happened during treatment. If you are afraid of needles, we also use a numbing cream to make sure you do not feel a thing.

Do not let any dental fears stop you from receiving the care you need and deserve. To learn all of the ways Dr. Shawn Van de Vyver, our compassionate dentist, and our entire dental team at Great Lakes Dentistry take care of your smile, please contact us today. We would be happy to answer any questions and concerns you may have.
