Do you experience anxiety during dental appointments? You’re not alone. Dental anxiety affects many people. In severe cases it can actually prevent you from getting needed dental care.
We can help you stay calm with sedation dentistry. We provide several options for the level of sedation you need.
Nitrous oxide gas, also known as “laughing gas,” is a tried and true dental sedative that has been used for over one hundred years. It provides a mild to moderate effect that wears off quickly and won’t interfere with your ability to drive after your appointment. Nitrous oxide is sometimes used in combination with other sedatives to provide a deeper level of sedation.
Some patients prefer a higher level of sedation to control anxiety. Oral sedatives produce a mild to moderate level of sedation that can be adjusted to your individual needs. Please note that the sedatives will leave you unable to drive safely, so you’ll need a ride home from our office.
