If visiting the dentist office makes you feel "anxious" or "fearful", conscious sedation may be a safe solution to improve your comfort level.
Almost 50% of the current population avoids going to the dentist due to “fear.” Taking the time to actively listen to those who have avoided dentistry for years because of this intense and realistic sense of “fear” and giving them the option to address these problems with minimal visits, with no pain and little memory of this experience is very encouraging!
Oral Sedation Dentistry will give you the courage and comfort in caring for your mouth.

Dental Exams & Cleaning
To improve your oral health, we recommend dental cleanings every 6 months. A professional cleaning by a dentist or hygienist, along with regular home care including brushing and flossing, can prevent future discomfort, cavities, and teeth sensitivity.
During your visit, you may also receive diagnostic services including:
- Medical history review
- Teeth evaluation
- Gum tissue evaluation

Crowns & Bridges
For weak, fractured and damaged teeth we use advanced materials for strength, health and natural appearance. After a tooth has had root canal therapy, we recommend placing a crown on the tooth by covering and protecting the tooth and restoring its strength and shape.

Root Canals & Endodontics
When your tooth is badly infected, Dr. Cline can place you on a regimen of antibiotics to begin the process of reducing the swelling and inflammation, prior to your upcoming appointment. This can also help you get properly anesthetized on the day of your visit, so your experience can be routine and comfortable.
