Did you know that according to reports, somewhere around 95 million Americans avoid going to the dentist because they are afraid? If you fall into that category, or your child is fearful or anxious about seeing the dentist, then sedation dentistry may be the perfect solution for you. If it’s your child, he or she can sit back and relax through the short visits, and even the long, more complex procedures.
For adults, a painful procedure or even a traumatic childhood experience can set the course for the anxiety you may feel towards the dentist. With sedation dentistry, the dentist can use an oral sedative and/or nitrous oxide to help.
If you have a child fearful or anxious about visiting the dentist, or a child who needs extensive dental care that would require multiple visits or long visits, sedation dentistry may be an excellent choice. Dentist Reviews in My Area Manhattan NY 10016
Nitrous Oxide, also known as laughing gas, is given to help relax the patient before dental treatment starts. A blend of two gases, nitrous oxide and oxygen are given through a small breathing mask that is placed over the child’s nose. It allows them to relax, but does not put them to sleep.
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry stands behind this technique and deems it to be a very safe and effective technique used to help treat children and their dental needs. This type of gas is very mild and is quickly eliminated from the body once the patient goes back to normal breathing. Nitrous oxide is not addictive and the patient will remain fully conscious and have all their natural reflexes. Dentist Reviews in My Area Manhattan NY 10016
