Have you ever made a dentist appointment, or maybe more than one and then after you make the appointment, you cancel? Or maybe you just don’t show up? Have you perhaps gone from dentist to dentist, hoping that it was the dentist and not your fear of dentists in general that was the problem?

Often referred to as laughing gas, the dental sedation treatment nitrous oxide really doesn’t make you laugh or even giggle. This sedation dentistry treatment is merely the gas nitrous oxide mixed with oxygen that your sedation dentist then administers to you through a tube placed into your nose so you breathe it. It is odorless. There are several benefits to this sedation dentistry treatment. The biggest benefit is that the dental sedation is quick acting. That means you come to our office, receive nitrous oxide, have your dental treatment(s) done, then the sedation dentist removes the tubes from your nose and within a very short time, you do not feel any after effects. During your dental procedures, you feel relaxed and aware, but not anxious about your procedures.
CONSCIOUS DENTAL SEDATION
Conscious dental sedation is a pill we prescribe to you and give to you, usually taken before you come to your appointment. Because oral dental sedation can make you feel woozy, you will need to find transportation to and from your appointment. Just like nitrous oxide, this sedation dentistry treatment administered by your sedation dentist helps you feel relaxed, and though you may feel woozy, you are aware of the dental work being done, but may not be bothered by it at all.
The advantage of dental sedation, besides feeling less anxious during your appointments, is that you may feel less pain, as anxiety can actually produce more pain during your procedures. Also, because you feel so relaxed, your sedation dentist can often perform more than one procedure during your visit.
Sedation dentistry is ideal for dental phobics, those people for whom just the thought of entering a dentist’s office is enough to fill them with intense anxiety. It is also perfect for people with busy schedules and little time. Call today to get the treatments you want and need in a relaxed, comforting setting in Ocala, FL!
