At Allen Always Smiles, we know and understand that for some people fear of the dentist is a real thing. That is why we do all that we can to make your visit to our dental office as relaxing and enjoyable as possible, but sometimes those efforts are not enough to calm your fears. Those times call for a different approach, and that is why we offer sedation dentistry.
What Is Sedation Dentistry?
In our sedation dentistry procedure, one option that we offer is nitrous oxide, better known as laughing gas, because of its calming effect. Laughing gas will help calm your dental anxiety. Although you might be completely aware of everything that is happening while your dental work is being done, you will feel relaxed and calm. It is administered through a mask over the nose and will wear off almost immediately once the mask is removed.
Other Benefits of Sedation Dentistry
We know that if you have one good experience, then it will be easier for you to keep that next scheduled dental appointment. Sedation dentistry can help you to feel comfortable and at ease about going to the dentist. Regular dental visits means better dental health, and that is our goal for you.
The choice to use laughing gas is completely up to you, but we want you to know that the option is available if you want it. There is no need to let dental fears keep you from receiving the dental care that you need and deserve. So, if you have anxieties about that upcoming dental appointment, please let us know and we will do all that we can to help relieve those anxieties.
We want you to feel safe and worry-free when you are having your dental work done, so if you think sedation dentistry can help, tell us! We will be happy to help.
