No longer does fear or anxiety have to stand in the way of receiving quality dental care. At Mendota Springs Dentistry, we proudly offer sedation dentistry to patients of all ages. This is one way that we can ensure your dental experience is as comfortable and rewarding as it should be. Whether it’s a routine dental cleaning or a complex restorative procedure, sedation dentistry can help you relax while we better your smile. Our doctors are gentle and qualified to administer Nitrous Oxide sedation in the comfort of our Fitchburg office. Sedation dentistry can be an invaluable option for adults or children who fear the dentist or those that have special needs or medical problems that make it difficult to receive dental care. Sedation dentistry can also be used if you have extensive dental work that needs to be done in a limited amount of time. Whether we are just helping to provide a more stress-free visit or accommodating a patient’s unique medical challenges, we are proud to offer the profound benefit of sedation dentistry at Mendota Springs Dentistry.
One of the most preferred options in sedation dentistry is Nitrous Oxide, also known as “laughing gas.” Nitrous Oxide is a colorless, odorless gas that is gently inhaled through a small mask or nosepiece. It produces controlled conscious sedation, which allows patients to fully relax and be comfortable yet have the ability to communicate with our doctors during their procedure if they wish. Nitrous Oxide is safe for both children and adults. Its effects wear off within minutes of removing the nosepiece, which allows you to drive yourself home after your appointment. Many patients have little to no recollection of their actual dental procedure after receiving Nitrous Oxide, and there are no lingering side effects to deal with. If you have been putting off your dental visit because of anxiety or the thought of trying to sit still in a dental chair for a long period of time, ask us about sedation dentistry. When Nitrous Oxide is combined with local anesthesia, your dental procedures can be a painless and comfortable experience.
