Feel At Ease With Sedation Dentistry
Sedation dentistry administers medication to help dental patients remain calm and relaxed prior to and during dental procedures. If you are experiencing an uncomfortably high level of anxiety, Dr. Rogge may recommend dental sedation. The most common form of dental sedation is an oral medication or nitrous oxide gas which is inhaled.
If you have any questions about how you can have a healthy, attractive smile like many of our other patients, please contact us today.
Patients who are more anxious may need an oral medication that is stronger than nitrous oxide. With oral sedation, the patient may be sleepy but can be aroused if necessary and can respond to simple commands.
Nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, is most often used for patients who are mildly or moderately anxious or nervous. It eases their fears so that they can relax and receive treatment comfortably and safely.
