Many patients feel anxious or nervous about their dental treatment. We have methods to help you feel more relaxed and calm during your dental visit.
There are several options based on your individual needs and preferences:
Nitrous oxide (laughing gas): This sedative gas is mixed with oxygen. You simply inhale the gas during your treatment to help you feel more relaxed. Nitrous oxide is a mild form of sedation that wears off in just a few minutes after we stop the flow of gas.
Oral sedation: This involves taking oral medication before your treatment. By the time of your appointment, you will feel calm and at ease.
We want you to feel comfortable during your treatment. Our experienced dentist and dental team will ensure that your entire treatment is safe. Each member of our team is highly trained, and we will carefully monitor you during your visit. If you have chosen oral sedation, please be sure to have a friend or family member available to drive you to and from your appointment.
If you suffer from dental anxiety, if you have had negative experiences at the dentist in the past, or if you simply feel nervous about your treatment, we can help you feel more at ease.
