Does the thought of going to the dentist cause your heart to race? Countless patients, both young and old, experience dental anxiety. At Three Creek Dentistry, we acknowledge the fact that not everyone enjoys sitting in the dental chair. That’s why we’ve equipped our practice to provide comfortable dental care and accommodate those with dental fear or dental anxiety. Not only do we provide soothing amenities, but we also offer sedation dentistry to help you relax. Sedation dentistry allows anxious patients to get the dental treatments they need and deserve.
Three Creek Dentistry offers sedation dentistry in the form of oral conscious sedation or nitrous oxide (laughing gas). While some patients are put at ease with our friendly atmosphere and comfort amenities, other patients need sedation dentistry to take away their anxiety. Sedation dentistry can be used for a routine dental cleaning as well as a lengthy dental procedure, depending on your unique needs and preferences. Our dentist adheres to a gentle, non-threatening approach in dental care, and we want each patient to experience dentistry in a relaxing and rewarding manner.
Nitrous oxide is one of the safest and most preferred anti-anxiety agents in dentistry. By wearing a small mask or nose piece, patients can inhale a sweet-smelling gas that causes them to instantly relax. Many patients report a sense of giddiness, which is why this form of sedation is commonly called “laughing gas.” You can expect to be unbothered by the dental work being done, and you may not even remember the actual procedure once it is over. Best of all, nitrous oxide is safe for kids and adults. There are no lingering side effects once the mask is removed, and you can safely drive yourself home if you wish.
Don’t let your dental anxiety stand in the way of a healthy and beautiful smile. Three Creek Dentistry is where you’ll find comfort care dentistry for patients of all ages. Whether you have a severe gag reflex or you’ve had a poor dental experience in the past, we can redefine your perception of the dentist.
