Our friendly dentist and dental team understand that many patients feel anxious or nervous about visiting the dentist. Dental phobia is common, especially for patients who have had negative experiences at the dentist in the past. At our dental office, we work hard to provide you with a positive, enjoyable dental experience. We provide sedation dentistry in North Platte, Nebraska to help you feel relaxed and at ease during your treatment. We offer two types of sedation dentistry:
- Nitrous oxide: Nitrous oxide is a safe gas that you inhale through a mask during your treatment. Also known as laughing gas, nitrous oxide produces a pleasant, warm feeling and eases your tensions. The effects will wear off within just a few minutes of the end of the treatment, and you will be able to safely drive yourself home afterwards.
- Oral sedation: For oral sedation, you will take a sedative pill before your appointment. By the time of your visit to our office, you will feel calm and relaxed. Be certain to have a family member or friend available to drive you home after your appointment; you will be able to resume your normal activities in a few hours or the next day.
