If you have dental anxiety and fear, we understand that going to the dentist is a terrifying experience! That said, please know that you are not alone! Nearly half of the people in the U.S. are missing teeth or have advanced gum and bone infections because they can’t get past the fear and make the phone call.

If you are one of these people who are terrified and are embarrassed to smile or open your mouth because of the long term affects of having to avoid the dental office, and this has this led to bad breath, tooth loss, and an unattractive smile, then Dr. Wingo can absolutely help you.

With our Sedation Dentistry services you will be so calm and relaxed that you’ll be able to finally get the treatment you need so you can smile and chew normally again.

We Provide 3 Levels of Sedation Dentistry:

  1. Very Light – Laughing Gas
  2. Light – An Oral Sedative (a pill)
  3. Moderate – A Combination of Laughing Gas and Oral Sedative

Simply put, these sedation dentistry methods safely and comfortably allow you to relax through your dental visit and Dr. Wingo highly recommends these if you are truly desperate to get the dental care you need.

If you have a moderate amount of dental fear and anxiety, then oral sedation may be right for you. It is a low cost method that is safe and is as easy as taking a pill. The overall effect is not as profound as IV intravenous sedation, but for most people, there will be enough relaxation with little recollection of the dental procedure.
