Do you suffer from dental anxiety?
Do you have difficulty relaxing while at the dentist?
Been putting off going to the dentist for years?
If you said yes to any of these, Sedation Dentistry with Orangevale Dental is a great option to help anxious patients feel more relaxed during procedures. We help you to relax and feel at ease before, during and after your dental care with us.
It’s no secret that many of us find the idea of dental treatments unsettling, and we may even feel quite a bit of anxiety once we sit down in the chair. We understand this anxiety and offer remedies before certain procedures to help prevent uneasiness and help you to feel comfortable. Nitrous Oxide, more commonly referred to as “Laughing Gas”, is one option of sedation dentistry that helps put patients at ease before a dental procedure. This form of sedation dentistry is referred to as Oral Conscious Sedation because Nitrous Oxide does not put patients to sleep, and patients are able to see and hear perfectly fine during treatment as well as respond to the dentist accurately. This is unlike other forms of IV sedation dentistry in which patients have IV medication injected into them with needles; the experience is much more calm and comfortable. Patients will take a few short breaths into a covered mask, and after a couple minutes will start to feel lightweight and relaxed. The effects of the gas will wear off soon after the mask is removed and will not cause any long term disorientation.
