Many people have anxiety about going to the dentist, and if you are one of them, you may prefer to have extra agents to help you relax during your treatments. At Ashley Dinh, DDS, PC, we do our best to make you feel comfortable and calm during your visits to our office and during your dental treatment. However, if you need more than a warm blanket and comfy neck pillow to ease your stress, we also offer sedation dentistry.
The last thing we want our patients to feel is fear or anxiety about visiting our office. Your dental health is important to us and we want you to feel comfortable getting the care you need. Sedation options can quickly calm your nerves and help you relax, making your dental visits more enjoyable while you get the care you need to keep your teeth healthy.
Relax During Your Dental Appointment
If you normally have anxiety during dental procedures, let our caring staff know and we’ll discuss our sedation options with you before your treatment. We offer oral sedatives and nitrous oxide for our patients requiring sedation dentistry. Nitrous oxide, often referred to as “laughing gas”, can help you quickly feel at ease. Our dental team can administer this gas before and during your procedure to increase your comfort level. You will breathe in the gas and almost immediately be put into a calm state of mind, although you will be awake through the entire treatment. Once your dental work is finished, a few breaths of fresh air will quickly bring you back to a clear mind, without a foggy or drugged after effect. Some people may barely remember the time they were under the influence of the gas, but that is completely normal.
Don’t put off the necessary dental care you need for a beautiful smile and optimum health due to anxiety or a phobia. Sedation options are available at Ashley Dinh, DDS, PC to make your visits comfortable and stress-free. Contact us today to learn more or to schedule an appointment.
