What are my options for dental sedation?
At Maine Family Dental, we understand that visiting the dentist isn't comfortable for every patient; in fact, millions of Americans feel fearful about their dental appointments. Unfortunately, dental fear keeps many people from getting the treatment they need to maintain their oral health. Dr. Buxton offers solutions for patients who feel anxious about dentistry with the use of nitrous oxide.
What is nitrous oxide sedation?
Nitrous is administered through a small, comfortable mask worn during dental procedures because it is a gas. It works quickly to help you feel relaxed and even happy, and it is safe to use during most types of dental procedures. Even better, nitrous doesn't interfere with the rest of your day, and it's safe to drive yourself home after using it since it leaves your system immediately after we remove the mask.
Nitrous is also safe for children, so if your son or daughter suffers from dental anxiety, talk with Dr. Buxton about their options for using nitrous during their procedures.
