It’s estimated that nearlyexperience some sort of fear about going to the dentist. Going to the dentist shouldn’t be an uncomfortable or frightening experience. If you find yourself avoiding the dentist out of fear, sedation dentistry may be right for you.
We offer two main forms of sedation dentistry: oral sedation and laughing gas (also known as nitrous oxide).
It’s normal to feel a little nervous about dental appointments, but if you find yourself avoiding the dentist due to your fears, it may be time to consider oral sedation. Oral sedation (also referred to as oral conscious sedation) can help you feel calmer during your dental visit. You’ll be fully conscious, but more relaxed and at ease.
Oral sedation is typically administered as a pill. You take it about an hour prior to your procedure so you can feel less anxious and less apprehensive. Learn More
Nitrous oxide, more commonly known as laughing gas, is one of the safest sedation methods we offer at Blevins Dentistry. The goal of laughing gas is to produce a relaxed, mildly sedated state for anxious patients.
Laughing gas is a mild anesthetic consisting of 50% nitrous oxide and 50% oxygen. It is so mild that we can even use it for minor procedures, such as teeth cleanings or hygiene visits. Learn More
