If you think you’re alone in your fear of the dentist, you’re not. More than 50 million Americans fear going to the dentist as reported by the American Dental Association. Our knowledgeable and caring dental team will help you overcome fear and get the dental work you need to be done.
Nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, can help ease your anxiety and make you more comfortable about the work we will be performing. It is best for cases of mild to modern nervousness and is used frequently by dentists everywhere. The gas is administered through an inhaler, and there is no pain. You’ll feel the effects of the gas in just minutes and, once the procedure is complete, the effects disappear quickly. Consult with us on your next visit regarding nitrous oxide treatments.
If nitrous oxide isn’t something you’re comfortable with, oral sedation is the second-most common anxiety relief form. After consulting with our team, our experienced dentists can recommend and prescribe an anti-anxiety medication to help you relax during your next visit.
Unlike laughing gas, oral sedation does not wear off quickly. You will need to have someone escort you to and from your visit. You will also not be allowed to return to work or drive for the remainder of the day.
Our trained and certified dental team is licensed in all anxiety relief medications and can ensure you’re always safe when using them.
Call us today to schedule a consultation to see what form of anxiety relief fits your needs.
