Dentistry for Anxious Patients

Dentists can treat anxious patients and often accomplish dental work in one or two visits that may have required many more visits without it

Through the modern miracle of sedation dentistry, dentists can treat anxious patients and often accomplish dental work in one or two visits that may have required many more visits without it. We do prescribe mild sedatives or anti-anxiety medications to relax the patients.

Nitrous Oxide Sedation
Sedation with nitrous oxide, more commonly known as laughing gas, decreases anxiety and promotes relaxation while you remain conscious. Nitrous oxide and oxygen are mixed together and then inhaled through a mask that covers the nose and mouth prior to having a dental procedure performed to produce sensations of lightheadedness, relaxation, and a comfortable, warm-all-over feeling. Safe, effective, and non-invasive, nitrous oxide is the sedation method of choice for anxious or fearful patients.

Overcoming Dental Fears
You are not born with a fear of the dentist. Fear is learned by having unpleasant dental experiences. We would like to help you overcome your fears, by providing your care at a pace that is comfortable for you. Our goal is to help you have healthy teeth for a lifetime.
