We fully understand that many people are anxious about visiting the dentist. Since we don’t want fear to hold you back from getting the dental care you need, we offer sedation dentistry to improve your experience. Sedation dentistry allows you to relax while we perform a dental treatment. At the same time, you will remain conscious and aware of your surroundings. Instead of avoiding dental procedures, ask us about sedation dentistry.
Nitrous oxide is a very safe form of sedation. It is inhaled and the effects start within a few seconds. It can be adjusted quickly if a patient is too light or too deep. Also, after a few minutes without the gas, it is safe to drive home. It has very little side effects and hardly any effects on the kidneys, liver, brain, and more.
Nitrous oxide makes many people feel happy and warm. It causes a lot of people to laugh so it is often called laughing gas. It is great for sedation when a person is nervous at the dentist. It is also a great pain relief.
Not many dentists use nitrous oxide analgesia anymore. We would be glad to use it if you are extremely nervous or you need some pain relief during your procedure. Our goal is to keep you as relaxed as possible, no matter what procedure that we are performing.
Oral sedation is a highly effective technique employed in dental practices to help patients feel calm and relaxed during various dental procedures. It involves the administration of medication in the form of pills or liquid that are taken orally prior to the dental appointment. The sedatives used in oral sedation induce a state of deep relaxation, reducing anxiety and minimizing discomfort during dental treatments. This approach is particularly beneficial for patients with dental phobia, those undergoing complex procedures, or individuals with a low pain threshold. Oral sedation is considered safe and convenient, as it does not require needles or intravenous access. Moreover, it allows patients to remain conscious and responsive throughout the treatment while ensuring a comfortable and stress-free dental experience. Dental practices that offer oral sedation prioritize patient comfort and strive to create a calm and relaxing environment to ensure optimal oral health care.
