At Middletown Smile Center, we can offer you local anesthetic and laughing gas to help you stay relaxed and comfortable while you are having dental work completed. Whether it is for a routine general checkup or a more advanced procedure like a root canal, stop putting off much needed dental work.
Laughing gas is an inhaled form of minimal sedation, where you breathe in a gas through a mask over your nose that provides a calm and pleasant feeling. Your dentist is able to control the amount of gas that you receive.
Local anesthesia is always given to numb teeth that are going to be worked on. It is injected into your gums surrounding the tooth, relieving you of pain throughout your dental work. The needle is very small.
Yes, the use of laughing gas during dental procedures is common and is an extremely safe practice. You will not be put to sleep when you are given laughing gas but will feel a lot more relaxed and less anxious as you inhale the gas.
After you stop breathing in laughing gas, you will find the effects will wear off within five to ten minutes, leaving you safe to drive home. The chances of negative side effects are very low. Our dentist will talk to you about laughing gas and any risk factors prior to administering it and will monitor you closely the whole time to ensure you are safe.
If you suffer from anxiety at the thought of coming to see us, then sedation dentistry may be the right option for you. Everyone deserves to receive quality dental care, so at Middletown Smile Center, we want to do all that we can to help our patients feel relaxed about coming to see us.
