Sedation dentistry to enhance your comfort
Dr. Keven R. Mills and our team are committed to making your experience in our office as comfortable as possible. If you feel anxious or fearful when visiting the dentist, ask us about nitrous oxide. This mild sedative helps patients to relax and feel more at ease during their appointments so that they can receive their treatments without complications.
Nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, is among the most mild sedatives available. It is provided via inhalation. Our dentist will simply place a mask over your face, and as you breathe in you will become more relaxed. Many patients report feeling a euphoric or floating sensation. This allows you to feel calm and relaxed during your appointment.
Nitrous oxide is very safe, and the effects will wear off a few minutes after you stop breathing in the gas. You will be able to safely and legally drive yourself home. Our dentist and team will monitor you closely throughout your entire appointment to ensure that you feel at ease and that there are no complications with your treatment or with the sedative.
Our team may recommend nitrous oxide for any patient who suffers from dental anxiety or phobia. We encourage you to discuss your concerns and feelings with our dentist and team prior to your appointment. This will help us determine the best ways to reduce your anxiety and develop a strategy help you feel more at ease in our office.
