Sedation Dentistry

Media, Newtown Square, Wallingford, Swarthmore and Delaware County, PA



Do you experience dental anxiety? If so, there is no reason to be ashamed. Millions of people avoid seeking cosmetic and general dentistry services due to reasons including:

  • Dental phobia
  • A dislike of the sights, sounds, or smells of dental offices
  • An overactive gag reflex
  • A difficulty getting numb
  • Tooth sensitivity
  • General anxiety surrounding any medical procedure

While there is no reason to be ashamed of your dental anxiety, there is every reason to seek solutions. You deserve a clean, healthy, and brilliantly beautiful smile. Failure to properly care for your teeth can result in issues as diverse as tooth discoloration, tooth decay, tooth loss, gum disease, and may even be linked to systemic issues such as heart disease.

If you experience dental anxiety, Dr. Hillyard can help. Please call 610-566-0291 to discuss how Dr. Gregory Hillyard can help you feel relaxed and comfortable during your visit to our Media, Pennsylvania office.

Sedation Dentistry

Dr. Hillyard has been in practice for over 25 years. In that time he has found that mild sedation is all it takes for most people to get the general services they need and the cosmetic dentistry services they deserve.

We are happy to offer the option of nitrous oxide to our patients who require assistance in feeling relaxed and comfortable at our office. Nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, allows you to become completely comfortable prior to your procedure while still remaining cognizant enough to respond to Dr. Hillyard’s directions.

This effective option is suitable for nearly everyone and has far fewer risks than methods such as IV sedation. Dr. Hillyard can discuss this with you in greater detail during your one-on-one dental consultation.

If you would like to learn more about your sedation dentistry options, please contact Dr. Gregory Hillyard today to schedule your initial dental appointment. We serve patients in Media, Newtown Square, Wallingford, Swarthmore, and Delaware County, Pennsylvania.
