We know that dental treatments can cause anxiety for many patients, and our priority is getting you the important care you need. If you experience dental phobia, we can offer nitrous oxide (laughing gas) to help you relax during treatment.
It is very common to be afraid of visiting the dentist. In fact, it’s a problem that affects millions of people. Sometimes the fear may be so overwhelming that you’re tempted to put off important treatments designed to protect your oral health.
Reduce Dental Anxiety
Of course, you already know that avoiding treatment only postpones the inevitable. But we need to find a way to help reduce your anxiety, and that’s why we offer nitrous oxide sedation.
Nitrous oxide is one of the safest, most widely used types of sedation available. It has helped millions of anxious patients receive both basic and more complex treatments.
When we use nitrous oxide, you will not go to sleep. You will just feel very calm and a little drowsy. Many of our patients tell us that, after treatment, they don’t really remember what was going on around them. After treatment, you will immediately be able to go about your normal activities.
Please don’t put off dental treatment because of your anxiety. We will be happy to explain more about the benefits of nitrous oxide at your next visit. Please call our Birmingham dental office to schedule an appointment.
