Ignoring your Dental Health Because of Your Dental Fears?
Is your dental fear and anxiety getting in the way of your dental health? By utilizing dental sedation you can eliminate the stress and fear on going to the dentist. Dr. Nugent has a special license to administer dental sedation medication in his dental office. The medication creates a calming, relaxing and unaware state.

Benefits Dental Sedation at the Dentist
You Maintain Alertness
Patients feel groggy, tired and sleepy. In fact many will go to sleep and snore. However, the patient will remain conscious and alert enough to communicate with Dr. Nugent.
Dr. Nugent will still use local anesthesia to eliminate pain. However, the sedation medications do have an analgesic effect and help create a profound level of pain relief.
Tested and Safe
Oral sedation is one of the safest forms of sedation dentistry because the medications act quickly and leave your system rapidly. The medications Dr. Nugent uses are the same medications Medical Doctors prescribe for patients to take at home without any supervision. With Dr. Nugent you will take one dose. You will be attached to a monitor that measures your pulse, oxygen saturation and pulse.
Dental sedation helps relax you and reduces muscle tension and soreness. It also “compresses time”. Thus, patients think their procedure took only minutes.

Because you are not fearful and are relaxed, Dr. Nugent can concentrate on delivering high quality dental care and work more efficiently.
