When you think of the dental office, do you think of an evil dentist guiding you into the dungeon and pulling out all of your teeth with giant pliers? If so, our dentist and dental team are here to change your perspective of dentistry!
Our dentist and dental office will never fulfill that vision, and there is no need to be scared of your dental appointments. In fact, we are thrilled to help you abolish your dental fears with dental sedation, like nitrous oxide! Nitrous oxide is a dental sedative that is also known as laughing gas. It is a great product that helps you relax in the dental chair. When you are about to begin your treatment, your dentist will gently slide a small mask over your nose and will ask you to deeply inhale for a few minutes. As the time passes, you will begin to feel more relaxed and comfortable in the hands of the dentist.
As you breathe through your nose, the effects of the sedative will make you feel light headed and tingly. Your legs and arms might even feel heavy. The laughing gas will not make you sleep throughout your treatment. You will be able to understand the dentist as well as communicate with them whenever you need to. When your treatment is completed, your dentist will remove the mask and the sedative will fade quickly, just in time for you to drive yourself home.
To learn more about nitrous oxide and other ways you can relax at the dental office, call us today! We are happy to help you find ways to relax in the dental chair.
