Sedation Dentistry Offers Many Benefits
Fear of pain plays a huge role in dental anxiety. Sedation helps diminish pain receptors in the brain. When combined with local anesthesia and our highly trained doctors, we will do everything we can to keep you comfortable and relaxed.
Sedation given at our office in Bridgewater will put you in a deeply relaxed or very drowsy state. It depends on if you choose nitrous oxide or oral sedation. Either way, you will remain conscious and able to respond to your dentist.
No Memory of the Procedure
Sedation can also prevent you from remembering your procedure, so you might have even less anxiety the next time you visit one of our Harrisonburg area offices for dental treatment.
Helps You Sit Still
Some patients may have medical issues that prevent them from sitting still, or physical issues that make sitting for long periods painful. Our sedation options can help you safely overcome these issues.
Reduces Gag Reflex
Many patients gag the second a dentist comes near their mouth with a dental instrument. This can make your procedure difficult to complete. Sedation calms the gagging reflex so your dentist can get to work and get you out of the dental chair as quickly as possible.
Makes Multiple Procedures Possible
Our smile makeover patients can benefit from sedation as it will allow our dentists to do more than one procedure while you are relaxing in one of our comfy dental chairs. This can cut down on the number appointments you have to make at our Harrisonburg, VA, area practice.

Six Reasons to Choose Smiles for Life Dental Care
Our Smiles for Life Patients Know
When I embarked on my journey to find the right dental implant service, I initially gravitated towards the two prominent national brands in the field. However, my search took an unexpected and incredibly satisfying turn when I decided to explore the offerings of a local implant provider. Little did I know that this local gem would redefine my expectations of what a top-notch implant service should be like. Here's why my experience with them was nothing short of extraordinary: Meticulous Charting of Teeth and Gums: ★★★★★ One of the first things that set this local provider apart from the national giants was their unwavering commitment to precision and detail. While the big names seemed more focused on the implant procedure itself, this local gem took the time to meticulously chart the condition of my teeth and gums. This attention to detail ensured that my implant procedure was tailored to my specific needs and challenges. It was clear that they understood the importance of a solid foundation for the success of the implants. Infection Prevention Education: ★★★★★ Implant surgery is not without its risks, and one of the key concerns is the possibility of infection. What truly impressed me was the depth of information and guidance this local provider offered regarding infection prevention. They didn't just gloss over this critical aspect; they took the time to discuss the infection possibilities associated with dental implants and, more importantly, outlined a comprehensive plan to combat and mitigate such conditions. Their proactive approach to ensuring patient safety was truly reassuring. First-Year Implant Supervision: ★★★★★ Perhaps the most remarkable aspect of my experience with this local implant provider was their commitment to the long-term success of my dental implants. While the national brands seemed content with the implant procedure itself, this local provider went above and beyond by offering required supervision for the first year following the implant surgery. This level of aftercare and ongoing support was simply unparalleled and gave me peace of mind knowing that my oral health was in capable hands. In conclusion, my exploration journey for dental implants took an unexpected turn when I discovered this exceptional local implant provider. Their dedication to detail, infection prevention, and post-surgery care were nothing short of outstanding. They not only surpassed the standards set by the national brands but also redefined my expectations of what a truly exceptional implant service should encompass. If you're in search of dental implants and want an experience that goes above and beyond, I wholeheartedly recommend giving this local gem a visit. They've certainly earned my trust and gratitude.

Morgan is the best! I hadn’t been to the dentist in 10+ years and was nervous even though I’d always been a fan of the dentist (weird I know). Morgan explained her recommendations, how the plan would work and set me up with my various appointment needs. She always remembers details of my life and asks about specific things mentioned previously. She’s wonderful and a great asset to Smiles for Life!
