Dental anxiety is a common problem that shouldn’t keep you from receiving the treatment you need. Whether it’s basic cleanings that make you nervous or you are in need of more complex dental work, Dr, Connelly can help by using sedation dentistry. He is, in fact, the only dentist in his area that offers IV sedation.
Sedation dentistry isn’t just for putting you under when receiving oral surgery, it can also be used to ease your stress during regular visits as well.

Which Sedation Options Do We Offer?
We offer a variety of sedations options at St. Johns Dental Care because no two patients are alike. Dr. Connelly understands dental anxiety, as well as the need for more complex treatment to be completed quickly. To make your experience in our office stress-free we offer sedation options including:
- IV Conscious Sedation: Dr. Connelly is the only dentist in the area certified to perform IV sedation. Some patients refer to this as a dental vacation, not remembering a thing. Imagine relaxing through your procedure and suddenly returning to full awareness with a brand new, beautiful smile.
- Nitrous oxide: Nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, is done by covering the nose with a mask and breathing in the gas. While this will take the edge off, it is the lightest form of sedation. The effects fade quickly so you can get back to your day once your appointment is over.
- Oral Sedation: Oral sedation is done by giving you a pill to relax you before your treatment. Oral sedation is often paired with nitrous for the best results. Oral sedation will keep you completely relaxed during treatment and in some cases will make it so you don’t remember anything about treatment.
