Anxiety-Free Dentistry

Why We Would Recommend Conscious Sedation During Your Appointment?

We know that going to the dentist can be frightening for some individuals. It’s called dental phobia, and it’s something millions of Americans experience. At our practice, we use sedation to help our patients feel anxiety-free and relaxed during their treatment. If you suffer from dental phobia, Dr. Dahlquist may recommend one of several types of sedation after reviewing your medical history.

OceanDental offers Nitrous Oxide

Nitrous oxide is commonly called laughing gas. There are several reasons to use nitrous oxide rather than complete sedation. It has been the primary way that doctors have helped relieve patients from anxiety. The gas is distributed through a face mask, and you inhale it through your nose. As the anesthetic begins to work, you’ll feel a bit groggy and de-sensitized. Patients who choose to use nitrous are able to resume normal daily activities by the time the treatment is finished.
