Sedation Dentistry

Do you ever feel anxious before and during a visit to the dentist? Are you currently procrastinating on scheduling a routine dental appointment? If you do experience dental anxiety, then you aren’t alone because most Americans experience it when visiting the dentist too. Once you have spoken with your dentist and have agreed that sedation dentistry is the route to go, we will provide nitrous oxide (laughing gas) to help you obtain peace of mind during the dental procedure.

Will It Help Me Relax?

As nitrous oxide is colorless and not pungent, it will not affect or cause any irritation to the patient receiving it. The intention of this gas is to help patients feel at ease while the procedure takes place, so you will be able to respond as well as hear your dentist throughout the entire treatment. While your speech may be slurred and responses slow, you will have complete awareness throughout the duration of the procedure.

After the nitrous oxide has been administered, your dentist will ask that you breathe slowly through your nose. The calming effect of the gas will then slip in and may cause you to feel somewhat light or tingly. The gas will be in effect for around 15 minutes allowing you to feel serene and ready to receive the dental treatment you deserve to keep your smile healthy.
