Our doctors take pride in being able to provide painless shots to make their
patients' dental treatments more comfortable. But some people become anxious
just at the thought of an injection. For those who still have fear of dental
visits, we have an easy solution that will let you feel comfortable while
the work is being performed.
By taking one pill just an hour before your work begins, you will feel very relaxed and be sedated enough to be unaware of the treatment, but aware enough to be able to respond to any questions. This solution works well for those with worries and also those that need more work accomplished in a single visit.
This medication, also referred to as laughing gas, is inhaled through a small mask. It induces and maintains a state of relaxation as the patient breathes. Together with a local anesthetic that is given, pain is eliminated.
Call our office at (619) 442-8841 to determine how sedation dentistry can make your dental visit comfortable and relaxed.
