Sedation dentistry is an effective way for making your dental visit comfortable, calm, and relaxing.
Nitrous oxide gas is the safest sedative in dentistry. It greatly reduces anxiety in adults and is perfectly safe for small children. The patient remains conscious during the procedure and post-treatment recovery is fast and complete. When nitrous is used, adults can drive home after the appointment.
Also, anti-anxiety medications can be prescribed to take before your visit. Together with nitrous and regular anesthetic techniques you will remain relaxed but awake throughout the procedure. Music through headphones completes the experience.
