What Is Sedation Dentistry?
Dental anxiety or dental phobia is a real problem for many people, preventing them from seeking the dental care they need. Unfortunately this often results in complex dental problems, including tooth loss, that have a detrimental effect on daily quality of life.
Dr. Nish Patel offers sedation dentistry options to enable those who suffer with dental anxiety to feel relaxed and comfortable during their treatment. Sedation dentistry can also be used to perform several dental treatments during a single visit.
Restoring your dental health can have many benefits and improve your overall quality of life.
Sedation Dentistry Options
Nitrous oxide: known as “laughing gas”, nitrous oxide allows patients to feel completely relaxed during treatment while remaining awake and cooperative during treatment. The effects of sedation are only experienced while the mask is in place, subsiding quickly once removed.
Dr. Patel will discuss your personal concerns and fears prior to your treatment and recommend the appropriate sedation option. If you have been avoiding the dentist for some time, schedule a consultation with Dr. Patel and begin the process of restoring your natural smile.
