Yes! We understand that not every patient feels comfortable or relaxed when they visit the dentist. Whether you suffer from dental anxiety, have a strong gag reflex, find it difficult to sit for long periods, or have a different reason for feeling uncomfortable at the dentist, we have several different sedation dentistry options available. We offer nitrous oxide (laughing gas), oral sedation (pill), and NuCalm (drug-free). Depending on your needs, we will help you choose the best option to keep you relaxed during your entire appointment. When scheduling your appointment, please let us know if you’re interested in using sedation dentistry so we can discuss your options beforehand.

Yes! If you need multiple dental procedures, we can arrange to complete them in as few visits as possible. Most patients only require one to two visits for certain treatments. Some patients might even be able to get everything done in one visit. Thanks to sedation dentistry, we can make sure you feel relaxed and comfortable during your entire appointment when you have multiple procedures in one sitting.
During your consultation with Dr. Hill, he will show you a digital image of what your smile will look like with veneers. Creating digital images beforehand can help him plan your treatment to ensure your results look exactly how you want them to.

Physiologic based dentistry, otherwise known as neuromuscular dentistry, is an area of dentistry that focuses on every aspect related to your bite (jaw joint and position) including ligaments, nerves, teeth, bones, and other soft and hard tissues. Most procedures we offer include some aspects of physiologic based dentistry in one way or another. For example, if you were to get a dental crown, we would make sure that the crown’s fit doesn’t cause an imbalance in your bite. If your bite was already off, we would provide you with treatments to correct this issue. The goal of physiologic based dentistry is to establish proper balance and harmony in the entire system related to your bite.
