We know for some of you, a visit to the dentist may seem daunting, perhaps even a little bit nerve-wracking – or even outright scary. Rest assured, you’re in good hands with our caring, capable team at Salt Run Family Dentistry. However, sometimes the best solution for everyone is to help you relax while we do what we do best – care for your mouth. Sedation dentistry is available not only for large jobs like wisdom teeth extraction, but also for those in need of a little extra comfort. If you feel you need assistance with relaxing during your visit, in most cases, we’re able to provide medicine to relax you. We’ll complete as much treatment as possible, after which you’ll regain alertness, feeling comfortable and refreshed.
Nitrous Oxide is Available
For those of you who just need a little boost to calm your frayed nerves, nitrous oxide (laughing gas) is available upon request. This is a great option to help you feel more at ease. It’s a safe and easy dental sedation option that helps you relax, and can be especially helpful for children and adolescents who experience dental anxiety. Laughing gas can also provide a better experience for patients with mental or physical impairments.
Before we administer anything, we’ll explore the best sedation dentistry options for you by reviewing your health history; including medications you are taking and habits you may have such as alcohol consumption and smoking. We take all of these factors into account when planning for your treatment, and when helping design a sedation dentistry plan with you. Your comfort and safety are our first priority. Contact us today to schedule an appointment for you or a member of your family.
