If you’ve avoided the dentist or you experience anxiety about dental care, there’s a solution for you. It’s called mild oral sedation! By simply taking one or two pills before treatment, patients can safely sleep through their visits and have little or no memory of the procedure. Oral sedation is proven to be a very safe and effective method of helping our patients receive the dental care they need.

Many of our patients are from the baby boomer generation,” says Dr. Ajmo. “Oftentimes, their teeth have darkened or yellowed, and show signs of wear, cracking, or chipping. These obvious aging signs, combined with the unsightly look of dated dentistry result in smiles that lack vitality and are dull. Advanced cosmetic and restorative dentistry allows the exceptionally trained and skilled dentist to incorporate dramatic aesthetic enhancements with the restoration of broken down or worn teeth so as to create a more youthful and healthy white smile which will stay beautiful for many years.
