Dr. Whitted is committed to making sure his patients are comfortable and calm during each and every appointment. Sedation dentistry is a consistent and simple method that can keep our patients relaxed when they visit us. If you experience anxiety or worry when it’s time to see your dentist, sedation dentistry can be a huge help to you. Dr. Whitted provides oral conscious sedation, and nitrous oxide, so that you can finally enjoy your time in the dentist’s office..

It is essential that you visit the dentist for cleanings and procedures, so that you can maintain great overall health. Regular cleanings and exams are important preventative care measures. With preventative care, you are less likely to need to return for more serious procedures and work. If you avoid the dentist, you may end up with tooth decay or damage that can cause you discomfort or even pain. Leaving your teeth uncared for can result in future health issues. Dental problems have been linked to heart disease, diabetes, and other illnesses and problems. We want you to feel completely relaxed when visiting the dentist, so that you can be as healthy as possible and live a long and comfortable life.

Oral Conscious Sedation

Oral conscious sedation is as easy as taking a pill. When you choose oral conscious sedation, Dr. Whitted will prescribe to you a sedative to take shortly before your visit to the dentist, so that you can be comfortable throughout your procedure. You can see your dentist for a consultation to discuss your worries and feelings about the dentist ,so that he can offer you the perfect method of relaxation. Dr. Whitted will then reassure you and provide you the correct dosage for your appointment, so that you can stop dreading seeing your dentist.

Nitrous Oxide

Nitrous oxide is a safe sedation dentistry method that is inhaled through a mask during your visit. Nitrous oxide is also known as laughing gas, because it completely puts you at ease. Because it is a method of conscious sedation, you will be able to respond to your dentist’s questions, and be somewhat aware of what is going on around you. You will not feel discomfort during your appointment. Afterwards, you are not likely to remember the details of your visit.

Hope for Kaisha

About 3 years ago Kaisha was diagnosed with a debilitating condition called Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS). She has been provided with an opportunity to receive treatment in Arkansas with a Doctor who is having great success treating people with her diagnosis. She is the only Doctor in the United States that is able to provide this treatment. We are raising financial support to help Kaisha be able to receive this unique treatment and hopefully regain some of what she has lost. Would you consider sharing her story with your friends/family. A You caring link has been set up to receive donations. Please feel free to reach out with any questions at
