Is sedation dentistry safe?
We perform a medical history regularly to ensure that all of the treatment you receive is safe for you. By providing accurate information about your medications and health history, we are able to customize your dental care in a way that keeps your smile healthy and your body safe.
If you have a fear of the dentist, the good news is that sedation dentistry in Bangor can be an excellent option to alleviate your fears and help you get the dental care you need promptly.
Dr. Buxton offers nitrous oxide, or laughing gas, as an option for dental sedation that will help you feel at ease during your dental procedure. Nitrous is delivered through a small mask that you will wear during your procedure. Gas is delivered directly into your system through a mask worn during your treatment, which allows it to work quickly. Patients feel happy, relaxed, and even euphoric at times with nitrous oxide.
Even better, nitrous leaves your system as soon as we remove the mask, so it is safe for you to drive yourself home and resume your normal activities.
