Wisdom Teeth:

  • Not all people need to have wisdom teeth removed. 
  • There are reasons for them to be removed:  when they are not positioned correctly, when they are impacted, when they are decayed, to create more efficient and stable orthodontic outcome, danger to adjacent teeth, pain, infection, when they not able to be cleaned and maintained properly to compromise your dental health for the rest of your teeth

We cannot express enough how important it is to see your dentist regularly. Remember, preventing disease is always better than treating disease.

IV Sedation:

  • Many patients prefer to be sedated for their dental work and find it helpful to make their dental visits much more tolerable.
  • This form of sedation allows us to treat you more efficiently, usually complete all of your dental treatment in one sitting versus returning for multiple appointments
  • You will have no memory of the procedure
  • Eliminates anxiety around dental procedures
  • Post-operative discomfort is significantly reduced because of less anxiety, faster treatment and safe medications to reduce discomfort before you leave the office.
  • Much safer than general anesthesia.
  • You will be back to your normal routine by the next day and will have eliminated the stress often associated with a dental appointment.
  • Add the video of the sedation monitor


  • Replace missing tooth or teeth
  • Restore chewing function in an area
  • Prevent shifting of teeth
  • Stabilize bite

Both Dr Ericson and Dr Baer are personable, kind, and most importantly, great dentists. The office environment is very inviting, and the staff are happy to be there. Dr Ericson is the first to know and learn about new techniques, and I find that very comforting and exciting. He really wants the best for his patients! Highly recommend.
