It’s no secret that many people feel anxious about visiting the dentist. This can be for several reasons: they had a bad experience, they haven’t seen a dentist in a while, they’re afraid of being judged, or they just haven’t had the time. But if you are avoiding the dentist because of anxiety, we have a cure for that!
First, we take great care of our patients and ensure they are relaxed before we begin their treatment. Then we can administer laughing gas (nitrous oxide) to help you get to a state that feels most comfortable. Finally, we don’t use needles to administer sedation, just a simple mask. Here’s what you can expect:
1. It’s Safe
Dentists have used this method of sedation for more than 150 years. Those that receive laughing gas report almost no side effects.
2. Get the amount you need
Our team can increase or reduce the amount of laughing gas you get during your treatment to ensure you are at optimal comfort.
3. You’re awake but relaxed
You’ll be able to communicate with us and tell us how you’re feeling during your treatment. The only difference is that your body will feel incredibly at ease.
Once you’re finished with the treatment, the effects of our gas don’t linger, and you’ll be able to drive yourself home. So if you’re ready to try sedation to help you relax and get the dental care you need to stay healthy, call Springs Dentist today at 719-249-5796 or schedule an appointment online in Colorado Springs, CO.
