How Nitrous Oxide Sedation can treat dental phobia

Are you scared of the dentist but need treatment? Do you find that your dental phobia keeps you from getting the smile you’ve always wanted? Are you avoiding the dentist because of your extreme anxiety in the dentist’s chair? If this sounds like you and you are seeking a caring, respectful dental team that can put you at ease so you can obtain the work you need, we invite you to call Dr. James Durfey of Aztec Family Dental. He and his team understand that many patients of all ages have dental anxiety. With our assistance, they can find their next appointment a positive experience by using nitrous oxide sedation during their visit.

What is nitrous oxide sedation?

Patients with extreme anxiety at the dental office may find themselves avoiding necessary visits to treat dental issues due to their severity. With nitrous oxide sedation, we can alleviate fears and help patients feel much more relaxed in the dentist’s chair. Dr. Durfey is a great dentist for scared patients, serving those who may otherwise avoid dental work due to how nervous or anxious they feel about spending time in the office. Nitrous oxide sedation is a colorless and odorless gas administered through a mask via the nose to provide almost instantaneous relaxation. Patients feel at ease as their dental work is completed to ensure necessary treatments are administered. Even those with mild anxiety will find this sedation excellent for their nerves.

Can I transport myself to my appointment with this type of sedation?

Absolutely! Patients do not need to arrange transportation to their appointments as they might with other sedation methods, like oral conscious sedation or general anesthesia. Oxygen is administered when the procedure is done to reverse its effects and allow patients to go home or back to work immediately following their appointment.
