Nitrous Oxide Sedation Dentistry
Sedation Dentistry & Dental Anxiety
Does the thought of a visit to the dentist's office make you a little anxious? If you suffer from dental anxiety, you are not alone. Nearly 40 million Americans have some level of dental phobia. Luckily for our patients, Garden City Dental Care offers Nitrous Oxide sedation dentistry. Nitrous Oxide, also known as "Laughing Gas", allows our patients to become fully relaxed for the duration of their time in the treatment chair, feeling little or no discomfort.
Many people avoid visiting the dentist for a general dentistry appointment or even for a checkup and cleaning because they associate fear and discomfort with the sights, sounds, and smells of the dentist's office. Patients who suffer from dental anxiety often face a number of issues when they finally make it to the dentist's office, and may require extensive maintenance or repairs. With Nitrous Oxide, Dr. Deutsch can perform multiple procedures in one comfortable visit while the patient reclines in a state of total relaxation.
What to Expect with Nitrous Oxide "Laughing Gas"
Patients who undergo sedation before a dental procedure are not actually asleep and are able to respond to questions from when necessary. Patients are constantly monitored to ensure that their sedation is successful and also to make sure that they are comfortable. Many of Dr. Deutsch's patients comment after their sedation dentistry session that they feel more relaxed than before they came into the office!
