Some people are perfectly comfortable visiting the dentist. Whether it is a routine cleaning or a root canal, those people are relaxed about, or even look forward to a dentist appointment. But many people aren’t very excited about seeing the dentist. They may experience mild apprehension or even fear.
While dental anxiety is perfectly normal, if it is keeping you from your regular cleanings and exams, or from receiving a needed dental treatment, you need to conquer your fear. If you deal with dental anxiety, why not talk to our dentist, Dr. Troy Walton about using nitrous oxide at your next appointment?
Nitrous oxide is safe and has been used by dentists for many years to help their patients relax. Nitrous oxide is mixed with oxygen. It is delivered through a mask that is placed over the patient’s nose. While under nitrous oxide, the patient feels relaxed but is not unconscious. The patient can still communicate with the dental team if necessary, and the effects disappear within minutes after the gas is removed.
If you are feeling a little anxious about your upcoming dental appointment, we can help. If you live in the Providence, Utah, area and would like to plan a visit to Redwood Dental, we invite you to call phone today.
