Sedation Learning Center
Free Laughing Gas
NO INSURANCE? NO PROBLEM!
Fear often keeps patients away from the dentist, which can disrupt your oral health over time. When dental anxiety is too much to handle, some patients choose to avoid the dentist altogether. This can lead to cavities and other oral problems that could be prevented with consistent dental check-ups. If you find yourself in the same situation and struggle with dental anxiety even through short dental visits, consider sedation dentistry! Sedation dentistry helps you feel completely at ease throughout your entire visit. Call Leading Smiles today to learn more!
Sedation dentistry can be given in pill form, through an IV or with nitrous oxide (known as laughing gas). We offer oral sedation, which is administered in pill form.
With oral sedation, the effects last longer that with laughing gas. You will be able to get up and walk and talk after your appointment, but you will need to bring along someone to drive you home after your visit.
Sedation dentistry helps you feel deeply relaxed and at ease. Sedation helps take the anxiety away and keeps surrounding sounds and smells from bothering you. You’ll feel drowsy and may remember only moments from your appointment or not remember the appointment at all. The sedation helps the appointment seem as if it was only a few minutes!
Yes, many patients who have suffered from dental anxiety are finally able to relax through their visits, and now are comfortable making appointments with their dentist to maintain their healthy smile! Sedation dentistry can also make the difference for you!
