A large number of patients do not visit the Dentist for regular check-ups because they are too fearful or suffer from dental anxiety. Sedation dentistry offers an excellent way to provide a safe, anxiety-free dental experience to those exhibiting these characteristics. A common misconception is that all sedation dentistry induces sleep which raises concern in many patients.
Here in our office, we can use Nitrous Oxide Sedation, which works by calming anxiety throughout the visit while remaining completely awake and conscious. Using this anxiolytic, safety and compliance can be effectively maintained throughout treatment, offering the patient and Dentist optimal conditions.
Nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, serves as a mild sedative delivered via a nasal hood throughout the entire procedure. Nitrous Oxide Sedation induces a general sense of well-being and decreased anxiety maintained from beginning to end. This sedation option has very few side effects and has been used successfully in dentistry for many years in history.
If you have any questions or concerns about Nitrous Oxide Sedation, please don't hesitate to discuss them with your Dentist in the office or call Dental Arts of Boynton Beach at (561) 767-9595.
