A lot of people are so phobic about going to the dentist that they prefer not to have any treatment. For people who avoid dentists like the plague, sedation dentistry may take away some of their anxiety. Sedation can be used for everything from invasive procedures to a simple tooth cleaning. How it’s used depends on the severity of the fear.
We at White Lily Dental provide Inhaled minimal sedation. You breathe nitrous oxide otherwise known as “laughing gas” combined with oxygen through a mask that’s placed over your nose.
The gas helps you relax. Your dentist can control the amount of sedation you receive, and the gas tends to wear off quickly. However, you will be advised after form of sedation where you may not be able to drive yourself home after the procedure.
