Millions of Americans suffer from dental anxiety or even dental phobia. Fortunately, safe and effective dental sedation has been practiced for more than thirty years. If you are anxious or fearful patient, Dr. Thompson invites you to consider our sedation options.
Many people have a misconception that sedation dentistry means patients sit in a dental chair and are immediately rendered unconscious. Those people are confusing sedation with anesthesia, which is designed to put patients under, control pain, and requires breathing assistance. Dental sedation is more like a light nap. It creates a dreamlike state between being asleep and being awake, and even though some patients do drift off during sedation treatment, they can be easily awakened and responsive to the doctor.
Dr. Thompson offers nitrous oxide (laughing gas), oral sedation, and IV sedation in our office. Get in touch to find out more!
We work with most insurance companies, and our insurance specialist will gladly compile a complimentary benefit analysis to maximize insurance benefits.

If you’re suffering from damaged or missing teeth, caught in a vicious cycle of restorative procedures, or dealing with uncomfortable dentures, Dr. Thompson may recommend that you consider Hybridge® dental implants. Hybridge is a revolutionary implant solution that combines dental implants with lifelike restorations for a single tooth, multiple teeth, or a full-mouth reconstruction.
Hybridge implant solutions are conservative in nature to save as much of the natural tooth structures as possible. It is also more economical than other implant systems—as the number of teeth to be replaced increases, the cost per tooth decreases.
Schedule a consultation today to find out how the Hybridge system can help you permanently restore your smile, your confidence, and your overall health!
Implant-supported dentures are not appropriate for every individual dental case, so Dr. Thompson also offers the more traditional prosthetic dentures. Today’s prosthetic dentures are made of lighter, more durable, and more aesthetically pleasing materials than ever before. These are not your grandma’s dentures! They look natural, feel comfortable, and mimic your original teeth in both form and function.
