Dentist in Georgetown, TX offers inhaled sedation
Are you anxious about visiting the dentist? Do you find yourself avoiding making an appointment with the dentist because of the fear of pain or discomfort? Does a strong gag reflex make it difficult to even get a thorough dental cleaning? If this sounds like you, you may want to take the time to speak to the team at 4405 Dental Studio in Georgetown, TX to learn more about dental practices in the area that offer inhaled sedation options.
What is inhaled sedation?
At 4405 Dental Studio, we offer inhaled sedation for patients with mild to moderate dental anxieties. This method of sedation is sometimes referred to by patients as “laughing gas.” Not all patients laugh with inhalation sedation, however, as some others achieve a sense of relaxation to the point where they might even take a nap in the dental chair! Nitrous oxide is an odorless, colorless gas that is inhaled through the nose and provides almost instant relaxation when patients are in the dental chair. The dentist can perform procedures quickly and easily, and oxygen is administered to the patient when the procedure is done.
What are the benefits of inhalation sedation?
Inhalation sedation has several benefits. It:
- Relaxes patients almost immediately in the chair
- Is administered through the nose, allowing patients to breathe comfortably through both the nose and mouth
- Is easily reversed with administration of oxygen
- Allows patients to drive to and from their appointment
- Has no side effects
- Is affordable
- Can be integrated into any dental treatments in our practice
- Works for both children and adults
Inhaled sedation might be right for you!
