Sedation dentistry offers individuals with general anxiety about going to the dentist or fears about a specific dental procedure the opportunity to have a stress free and more comfortable experience. Utilizing safe and controlled sedation techniques before the dental procedure, the patient is eased into a state of complete relaxation. This step eliminates any discomfort, pain, and preoperative anxiety that may be associated with a particular dental visit. With sedation dentistry, patients typically feel more at ease post-operatively.
At the office of Precision Dental Care, we are committed to creating a comfortable and caring environment for our patients. While we always use a local anesthetic to thoroughly numb the treatment area, so that patients do not feel any discomfort, some individuals may feel they need an additional option to reduce their anxiety and have a more relaxed experience. For these patients who are apprehensive about dental work or a particular procedure, we offer a safe and effective option in dental sedation.
Nitrous Oxide, which is commonly referred to as “laughing gas,” is a fast-acting and mild sedative that reduces anxiety and facilitates a more relaxed and stress-free dental experience. Inhaled through a small mask placed over the nose, it is administered for the duration of the procedure and is turned off as the work is coming to an end. As a short-acting and mild form of sedation, the effects wear off very quickly.
At the office of Precision Dental Care, we provide skilled and compassionate care to address all your dental needs. For more information on our office and the many services that we provide, give us a call today.
