If you get anxious going to the dentist you are not alone! Many people have had not-so-pleasant experiences getting their teeth worked on when they were younger and they tend to carry it with them to each new visit. We do our best to make our scared patients feel comfortable. We use a topical gel to numb for injections. We inject slowly to minimize the sting of the medicine. We have clean blankets to make you feel more comfortable. We can give you as much or as little information as you need about the procedure. And if you need to talk, take a break, or even if you need a little prayer, we are there for you!
If you need extra help with your anxiety we can give you some medicine to take before the procedure to take the edge off the stress. We also offer nitrous oxide gas to help patients relax. At your first appointment we can talk about the best plan for your individual needs.
Nitrous Oxide Sedation
This type of sedation is otherwise known as “laughing gas”. It is combined with oxygen through a mask that is placed over your nose to help you relax. Our dentists can control the amount of sedation you receive, and the gas will wear off quickly. With nitrous oxide, you will be able to drive yourself home after the procedure.
