If you feel anxious every time you schedule a dental visit, you are not alone! Many patients deal with dental anxiety and fears and it results in them putting off their dental care. By avoiding their regular visits, tooth decay and other problems can be missed and turn into bigger problems by the time they talk themselves into visiting their dentist.
Rather than avoiding the dentist, we want every patient to feel completely comfortable keeping up with the health of their smile! With the help of sedation dentistry, our goal is to remove all fears that are connected with your dental visits. Imagine sitting through a dental visit completely relaxed and at ease the entire time. With sedation dentistry, you can do just that! In addition to sedation, we offer pillows, blankets and other amenities to help you feel at home and comfortable! We offer Oral Conscious Sedation & Nitrous Oxide.
Nitrous oxide, often referred to as laughing gas, is given through a facial mask. Once you are wearing the mask, the sedation begins to work within minutes. Similar to the oral sedation, you will feel relaxed and at ease the entire time. The level of sedation can be increased or decreased throughout your appointment. Once your mask is removed, the effects of sedation will wear away quickly. This allows you to resume your daily activities following your appointment. Nitrous oxide is safe for children and can also be administered to patients with disabilities.
