If you suffer with severe dental anxiety or dental phobia, you are not alone. It has been estimated that nearly 30 to 40 million people avoid going to the dentist due to fear.* Whether your fears are based on past traumatic dental experiences or if they are more unexplained, periodontist Dr. Gregg Codelli wants to help you get the care you deserve with sedation dentistry.

Be Set Free from Fear

Sedation dentistry allows us to give you a path to treatment that is free from fear. Many people who fear the dentist do everything they can to avoid going. The problem is that if you neglect your oral care, your overall health can suffer too. The bacteria in your mouth can travel throughout your entire body and infect other areas, including your heart. Do not put your health at risk any longer. We can help.
