Dr. Gerlach has helped dental guests who are afraid, nervous, or scared receive the care they need and deserve. Dental anxiety is nothing to be ashamed of! The condition is real and common. According to the Academy of General Dentistry, 40 million Americans avoid dental visits because of fear or anxiety. Dr. Gerlach understands and provides calming solutions.
In addition to our relaxing environment, inviting team, and genial atmosphere, we offer time-tested, effective sedation methods, including nitrous oxide and oral sedation, to reduce anxiety and promote calmness. Sedation dentistry provides a safe and reliable way to eliminate fear and achieve a healthy, beautiful smile.
If you qualify for sedation dentistry, you'll take a sedative prior to your appointment and drift into a state of total physical and mental relaxation. Dr. Gerlach will perform your dental work, potentially completing several procedures in a single session and turning back the clock on your smile. The effects of sedation wear off gradually and leave patients with pleasant memories and no recollection of treatment details.
You no longer have a reason to avoid dental treatment. Let us know if you're an anxious patient. Sedation dentistry can change your life.
