Millions of Americans avoid going to the dentist each year and will use any excuse they can come up with when they are reminded that they need to schedule a dental appointment. The number one reason people give for avoiding the dentist is “dental phobia.” For many, the sounds, smells, and feelings of dental cleanings and other procedures set their anxieties on edge and prevent them from having a routine cleaning, checkup, or a needed procedure. If this sounds familiar, you can rest assured that Gold Hill Dentistry offers a relaxing and safe option for those with dental phobia. We are proud to provide patients with nitrous oxide sedation to ease anxieties and make your visit to the dentist a comfortable experience.
Nitrous oxide is a safe and effective sedative agent that is mixed with oxygen and inhaled through a small mask to help people relax. Sometimes called “laughing gas,” nitrous oxide is an option for patients who are uneasy and/or unable to relax during a visit to the dentist. While this sedative agent is not intended to put a person to sleep, many people are so relaxed by nitrous oxide that they do not remember their dental appointment at all. At Gold Hill Dentistry, we are highly trained and experienced using nitrous oxide to provide patients a calm and comfortable dental appointment. The effects of nitrous oxide wear off soon after the mask is removed, making it an ideal solution for those that would otherwise put off dental appointments.
Instead of making excuses why you can’t make your next dental appointment, and instead of giving into your fears and anxieties at the risk of your dental health, call Gold Hill Dentistry today. We are sensitive to the needs of all our patients and will do all we can to make your dental experience a positive one.
