We understand that going to the dentist is a huge source of anxiety for a lot of patients. Our philosophy is that the more comfortable you are as a patient, the easier it is for everybody and the higher quality of care we can provide you. In addition to local anesthetic, we offer the following options:
- Nitrous oxide: a safe, inhaled gas that is “like having a couple of glasses of wine.” Once turned off, it is completely out of your system (no need for a ride). For patients that have an anxiety level of 4 – 7. Our most popular “extra”, we get a lot of positive feedback from patients who use nitrous.
- Oral sedation: a safe pill that is taken the night before and 1 hour before appointment. Someone will need to drive you to your appointment. For patients that have an anxiety level of 7+. Used in conjunction with nitrous oxide.
