Promoting Stress-Free Dental Care
Dental sedation refers to a variety of techniques used to make patients more comfortable during dental procedures. Our dentists can help determine if a dental sedation option is right for you.
At My Care Dental, we do what we can to help patients feel relaxed and comfortable during their dental appointments. In addition to offering sedation options, we will work at your pace, take breaks when you need them, and provide calm reassurance as needed.
Our goal is to ensure that every patient has a positive experience and feels confident in their dental care. We believe that a comfortable and stress-free environment leads to better oral health outcomes.
Nitrous Oxide (Laughing Gas)
Nitrous oxide is inhaled through the mouth and nose. It calms patients even though they remain awake and communicative. It also tends to lessen anxiety, increase pain threshold, reduce the gag reflex and make time pass more quickly.
Oral sedatives are pills or liquids prescribed by your dentist. The medication is taken in advance of a dental appointment. It should leave you awake for the procedure, but it produces a calming effect to significantly relax you.
