Sedation dentistry is a highly effective method to reduce and/or eliminate anxiety. Many people fear going to the dentist anyway due to either by a past traumatic experience or because of a true phobia. This FEAR keeps thousands of Americans each year from having their annual check-up, getting their teeth cleaned or to accept needed dental work. Dr Marquez offers oral sedation and Nitrous Oxide (laughing gas) for our anxious patients. Oral sedation is easy. Prior to your appointment, the patient simply takes a pill.
After a period of time, the relaxing effects can be felt. Oral pills can achieve the desired level of sedation; Oral sedation is effective and can be considered very cost effective. Nitrous Oxide is a safe and effective way of controlling anxiety in a lot of our patients. The overall effect is one of relaxation. The effect of nitrous is immediately reversed after several minutes which is convenient for many of the patients. For our more apprehensive patients we can use a combination of Nitrous Oxide and oral sedation. This is safe and quite effective. Sedation can reduce the overall number of visits to complete dental care as well as can reduce most of the dental treatment anxiety. Please contact us today for more information.
