♥ Do you avoid dental offices and dental treatment? Perhaps you have had a painful, fearful or anxious trip to the dentist? It is estimated that one in three people are so anxious about seeing a dentist that they neglect their dental health.
Nitrous Oxide/Laughing Gas Assisted Dentistry
Nitrous oxide, commonly known as laughing gas, is an extremely safe, effective tool to manage pain and anxiety in all of our patients, even in young children. An unobtrusive, comfortable mask is secured on our patientís nose so the correct dose of laughing gas can be inhaled through the nasal passages. The patient is treated in a state of reduced anxiety and pain. At the end of the appointment, the patient inhales pure oxygen for 5-10 minutes and the patient feels normal again. Our younger patients love how much easier their appointments are and so do our parents.
Oral Sedation Assisted Dentistry
You can get the beautiful, healthy smile youíve been wanting without pain and fear. More effective pain and anxiety management can be achieved using oral sedation. Years of dental neglect can be corrected in a safe, comfortable atmosphere without anxiety, fear or pain. Most patients remember very little, if anything from the appointment. How does it work? Dr. Murray prescribes medication prior to treatment and adjusts the dose during your appointment using hospital-grade monitoring equipment to insure safety. You can relax knowing you will be safe and comfortable during your visit.
