Our doctors take pride in providing painless injections to their patients. Even without the pain, some patients still feel anxious just at the thought of having an injection or even sitting in the dental chair. We have solutions that will halt their worries and stop them from breaking into a cold sweat just from thinking about a dental visit.
By simply taking a pill one hour before your visit, you will begin to reach a level of sedation that makes you unaware of the procedure, but still alert enough to answer any questions the doctor may ask. This works well for those with fear, but also for those who need to have more work accomplished in one visit.
Another method of relaxation is with nitrous oxide or “laughing gas.” A mask is placed over your face, and you breathe in the gas to induce a relaxed state. Local anesthesia is also given with nitrous oxide to eliminate all pain in most situations.
