Dental Care in a Relaxing Environment
Even though our doctors take exceptional care to deliver painless injections, some people are simply anxious at even the idea of a needle. For others, the tools needed to complete treatment are the cause of their nervousness. If you or a loved one experiences a cold sweat at even the mention of the word “dentist,” we have a simple solution.
One hour before your appointment, you take a pill that we provide. You will gain a level of sedation that allows you to answer questions but mostly sleep through your entire appointment. There’s no time for anxiety! This is perfect for fearful people or those who need more extensive work and want to get all their treatment done in one visit.
Nitrous Oxide Sedation
Another option is nitrous oxide sedation, also known as “laughing gas.” This is routinely used to make treatment more pleasant. The sedation is breathed through a mask that allows you to inhale the medication until you acquire a state of relaxation. Local anesthetic will then be administered in conjunction with nitrous oxide to prevent pain in most cases. It wears off quickly, allowing you to drive yourself home.
