Not everyone is comfortable with going to the dentist, and at Mill Point Dental, our dentists, Dr. Chelsea Longlet, Dr. Michael Longlet, and Dr. Eric Alston, and the members of our team understand that. We will be happy to sit down and talk with you about the source of your dental anxiety and help you find some ways to have a comfortable visit. After all, your comfort is one of our priorities! One method we may use to help you relax is nitrous oxide. It is safe for adults and children, wears off quickly, and has no after-effects. To find out more about using nitrous oxide in Bend, Oregon, call 541-388-0078 today.
Do you ever feel nervous about visiting the dentist? Does your upcoming treatment make you feel anxious? If so, you may benefit from nitrous oxide (N20) sedation at our office. Nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, is a nitrogen-oxygen mixture that you inhale through a nose mask during your treatment. As you breathe in the nitrous oxide, you will experience a relaxed or even euphoric sensation. Nitrous oxide can help you feel calm and at ease throughout your treatment. Nitrous oxide sedation is very safe: the effects will wear off within just a few minutes after we remove your nose mask, and you can legally and safely drive yourself home after your appointment.
Nitrous oxide is a good option for any of our patients who suffer from dental anxiety or dental phobia. If you feel anxious because you are receiving a treatment you have not experienced before, or if you simply dislike the sounds and sights of the dental office, we may recommend nitrous oxide to help you feel more relaxed. Be certain to discuss your concerns with our dentist and team before your visit so we can help you feel more comfortable during your treatment. We invite you to contact us today to learn more!
