Sedation Dentistry - North Phoenix, AZ
Pain-free Dental Visits
For patients with a fear of the dentist, sedation dentistry can be a great option. Sedation dentistry is designed to help reduce anxiety levels while you are in the dental chair. . Our doctors are experts at reducing your fear and anxiety when visiting the dentist!
Nitrous Oxide Sedation
Nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, is one of the three methods of sedation that we use. This odorless gas is administered through a mask that sits on your nose and helps reduce anxiety during your procedure. This method will help you relax and will create a tingling sensation throughout your body. You will remain conscious during your procedure and will be able to communicate with us if you are feeling any discomfort. If you are feeling anything else but relax, we can up the dose a little bit to make you more comfortable. The gas wears off just as quickly as it is administered and you will be able to drive back home after it has worn out.
Another type of sedation method we use is oral sedation. This method comes in the form of a pill that will be taken about an hour before your appointment so it can kick in by the time you arrive. This is the easier method to administer and will target the part of your brain that controls anxiety to help you feel relaxed during the procedure. Oral sedation is designed to make you comfortable while making you pain-free.
