Fear or anxiety while visiting a dentist is a real struggle. People often intend to hide their fear by opting not to go to the dentist. That is why at Puffer Dental, we don't want you to have that confusion as we offer sedation dentistry for our patients. Our team here aims at providing you gentle and comfortable care.
What are the types of sedation that we offer?
We offer the following types of sedation:
Safe and Comfortable IV Sedation
IV sedation is used for patients undergoing intensive dental treatment. This sedation will keep your dental fear and anxiety at bay. You will not have to worry about anything as you will be under the effect of sedation from the beginning of treatment to the end. It will grant you total peace of mind.
If you are someone who skips dental appointments or tries home remedies for their oral issues due to dental fear, you don't have to do that anymore. We advise you not to compromise your oral health because of your dental anxiety. Our team understands this common fear and can very well handle the situation. You will just have to lie on the dental chair comfortably during the procedure.
Nitrous Oxide or Laughing Gas
Nitrous Oxide, also known as "laughing gas," is a sedative agent that is safe and effective for less-invasive dental procedures. They are inhaled with the help of a small mask which will make you calm throughout the procedure. It will not make you completely doze off; instead, you will still be able to hear and respond to the dentist.
With the mask-on, you may feel a little weird, like having light-headedness, tingling, or heaviness in your arms and legs. The effect of this sedative agent wears off soon after the removal of the mask. Patients can still drive themselves home after the procedure.
