Dental Care in a Relaxing Environment
Even though we take great pride in being able to deliver painless injections, some people are naturally anxious at even the thought of a needle.
Does the thought of having your teeth cleaned make your body tense with fear? If you would rather endure a toothache than step foot in a dentist’s office, you’re not alone.
If you avoid dentists like the plague, sedation dentistry may take away some of the anxiety. Sedation can be used for everything from invasive procedures to a simple tooth cleaning.
Nitrous oxide is a safe and effective sedative agent that is mixed with oxygen and inhaled through a small mask that fits over your nose to help you relax. Dr. Aydin can control the amount of sedation you receive, and the gas tends to wear off quickly. In fact, you will be able to safely drive home or to work following your appointment.
In conclusion, nitrous oxide is a safe, reversible addition to help you relax during treatment. You remain conscious and “in control” throughout the procedure. Simply relax and breathe deeply through your nose. It’s just that easy.
