What is sedation dentistry?

For many people visiting the dentist feels unpleasant. Whether it is because of a bad experience in the past or anxiety over sitting in a dentist's chair while they work, some people have a hard time with the dentist. 

Some patients will go so far as to avoid going to the dentist at all. At East Cooper Smiles, we don't want our patients to put off the care they need because they are anxious and afraid, which is why we offer sedation dentistry.

How Can Sedation Dentistry Help You?

Using nitrous oxide, often called laughing gas, we can provide patients with enough to create a calming effect that makes procedures easier to tolerate. 

The effect of the dose of nitrous oxide wears off quickly enough that it will not prevent patients from being able to drive themselves home.
