Sedation Dentistry

Dental phobia is a real, often overwhelming reality for thousands of people.  Negative previous dental experiences, fear of needles or drills, and severe gag reflexes are just some of the reasons people feel extreme anxiety when thinking about visiting the dentist.

Our office offers our patients the option of a deeper form sedation for their dental treatment.  This is what sets our office apart from other dental practices, and we find that it helps to alleviate any anxiety or fear that many patients have experienced in other practices.  The doctors at Renaissance Dental Center have teamed up Dr. Dillon Atwood to provide this type of care.  Dr. Atwood is one of only a few dental anesthesiologists in North Carolina. He works with Renaissance Dental Center to provide all levels of anesthesia to our patients.  Patients may choose from a level of comfortable, relaxed sedation to a deep sleep through their dental treatment.

If you suffer from dental phobia- fear no more!  At Renaissance Dental Center, we are committed to understanding the very real nature of your fears.  Not only will our team treat you with delicacy and care, but a deeper level of anesthesia will allow you experience dentistry in a whole new way.  While engaging in a pleasant sleep-like experience, the doctors at Renaissance Dental Center will be hard at work making sure you "wake up" with the results you desire.
