Sedation Dentistry To Relieve Dental Anxiety

So what if you’re afraid of the dentist?! Can’t you just brush your teeth every day and be fine? There is no shame in being afraid of the dentist. In fact, most people some level of fear or anxiety when visiting the dentist.

Avoiding the dentist thinking that your oral health will be in top shape all the time is not such a wise course. Neglecting your oral health will most likely lead to damage that will cause more embarrassment and even life-threatening health problems down the line.

Nitrous Oxide Sedation Dentistry

The combination of inhaled nitrous oxide and oxygen is a safe and effective means of managing pain and anxiety in dentistry, when used appropriately. When nitrous oxide is used in combination with a local anesthetic, you won’t feel pain or anxiety. In fact, many patients report a feeling of well-being during this type of sedation. All bodily functions remain normal during the administration of nitrous oxide, and its effects wear off quickly afterwards.
