Relieve dental anxiety with anesthesia and IV sedation dentistry.
Look Forward to Pain-Free Dental Visits
At New Image Dentistry, we’ve been making pain-free, comfortable dental visits a priority for generations of patients. We know that a positive visit to the dentist is a powerful thing, and we strive to make each patient’s experience something to look forward to.
Our team is here to make your visit as comfortable and stress-free as possible, while allowing us to provide you with the best dental care available. In order to do this, we offer IV sedation dentistry and other sedation options at our practice to replace fear and anxiety with relaxation and a calming environment.
Whether you are here to have your wisdom teeth removed, or on a journey to the smile of your dreams, we can include options like nitrous oxide or IV sedation as part of your treatment plan.

We provide sedation options for even the most common procedures by utilizing nitrous oxide. This odorless, colorless gas helps to induce a state of relaxation and, for some patients, a feeling of euphoria. As you inhale the gas, its effects can be felt almost immediately, allowing you to enjoy a stress-free dental visit. Once the gas is stopped, you will return to normal shortly, and will be able to drive yourself home from our office.
Intravenous conscious sedation (IV sedation) works through the administering of anesthetic medicine directly into the bloodstream. Under IV sedation, you will still be awake, but barely conscious. Our team will monitor you closely throughout the procedure. This process ensures a pain and stress-free procedure. In most cases, patients have little memory of their visit with IV sedation dentistry, and tend to sleep or rest once they get home. The medication will wear off several hours after treatment, so it’s important to plan the day of your appointment accordingly.
Many general and cosmetic dentistry procedures can be performed under local anesthesia. Your dentist and hygienist will inject a numbing anesthetic into the appropriate parts of your mouth, creating a numbing effect that lasts for several hours. This sedation option allows us to perform procedures without causing pain or discomfort, but still allows you to drive yourself home after your visit.
