Dental anxiety is a real psychological condition that many people suffer with. This makes their dental appointments very scary and stressful because they are extremely afraid of the many tools and feelings related to their dental appointments. If you are one of these people, our Palm Court Dental dental team is happy to help you by offering nitrous oxide and oral sedation at our office.
Nitrous oxide is a gas that is inhaled through the nose. Dr. Neal Vavra will place a small mask over your nose during your treatment and the nitrous oxide will be released. Once you inhale deeply for a few minutes, you will feel the effects. You will feel a bit tingly and light headed but especially relaxed. This will only last for as long as the mask is on your face.
Oral sedation is a pill you will take about an hour before your treatment. As the sedation hits your system, you will feel a bit drowsy and maybe even groggy. Depending on the dose given, you might fall asleep in the dental chair. If this is the case, your dentist will gently wake you when your treatment is over.
As you can see, if you use dental sedation in Fontana, California, there is a high chance you’ll have a better and more relaxed dental experience. So, if you’re interested in using one, please call our office at 909-829-3994 and tell our team about your situation. When you come into our office, we will be happy to see which option is best for you. We look forward to helping you have the best dental experience possible!
