Sedation Dentistry

Sedation Dentistry


Going to the dentist can be a frightening experience for some patients. They might not like someone being directly in their face or be afraid of the small needles and other instruments that are used. One solution is sedation dentistry.

Faster Service

Sedation dentistry enables the dentist to work faster. The patient isn’t asleep but relaxed to a point where there isn’t anxiety or nervousness, which can get in the way of the work the dentist needs to perform. The dentist won’t need to worry as much about you pulling away while the procedure is in progress or you moving around.

No More Anxiety

As soon as you get in the chair, you’ll be sedated in some way—it could be nitrous oxide through a mask or even a pill that you take to help keep you calm. If the procedure is complicated, then the dentist might give you a sedative to take the night before as well as one that you take in the office. No matter what method is used, you’ll be able to feel relaxed without having a worry about what the dentist is doing.

Pain-free Dental Care

Many people don’t go to the dentist because they fear the pain that is involved since the mouth is an extremely sensitive area on the body. With the sedation method, you won’t even be able to tell when the dentist is injecting medication in your gums. The actual pain will be gone as well as the fear of the pain, making the experience pleasant and one that you want to do again so that you can have healthy teeth.

Burke Jardine, DMD at Excel Dental offers sedation dentistry to try to help patients feel as comfortable as possible so that they receive the proper oral care. Call today to learn more.

Pediatric Dentistry

Pediatric Dentistry

Pediatric dentistry refers to all of the preventive, diagnostic and treatment services that kids need in order to maintain optimal oral health. A pediatric dentist is prepared to care for children with special healthcare needs. Your child’s pediatric dentist is also familiar with special dental concerns that children face, such as the loss of baby teeth, malocclusion and the prevention of cavities.


Six-month checkups are essential to your child’s oral health. For kids ages six and younger, these visits help your child to learn proper oral hygiene. These visits also help to monitor the eruption and loss of the baby teeth, and children ages 7 to 12 can learn more about self-care for their teeth. Their checkups may also include dental X-rays. Teenagers need regular visits to monitor their bite and the eruption of adult teeth. During all visits, kids have their teeth cleaned and examined for signs of decay.

Fluoride Treatments

Fluoride is an element that integrates with dental enamel to make it stronger and more resistant to cavities. Your dentist can let you know if your child is getting enough fluoride. If your child needs fluoride supplementation, your dentist may recommend tablets, tap water, or an in-office treatment.

Dental Sealants

Dental sealants can be applied to a child’s six-year molars or 12-year molars. The sealants are thin coatings of clear plastic that help to fill in the crevices and grooves of the tooth’s chewing surface. By filling in these spaces, the sealants help to stop food from getting trapped. They also prevent bacteria from growing in these hard-to-reach spaces, thereby lowering a child’s risk of cavities.

Excel Dental is the ideal choice for your pediatric dentistry needs. Call today to make an appointment or learn more about pediatric dentistry services.
