I have anxiety about going to the dentist. What do you do for that?
If you’re anxious about dental visits, don’t feel like it’s just you; millions of people worldwide experience anxiety about going to the dentist. Many of these people have been carrying this burden since childhood, but nitrous oxide sedation at our Kansas City, MO dental office can help.
The first step is to let us know how you feel. Sometimes just opening up and talking about it is enough to relieve some of the stress you feel. Understanding what it is that you fear about dentistry also helps us adjust your treatment accordingly.
We also offer nitrous oxide sedation that allows you to get the care you need while you enjoy deep relaxation. We mix nitrous oxide with oxygen, and it is administered through a small nasal mask. When you sit back and breathe normally, you will experience a sense of well-being and comfort. You will be fully conscious and able to communicate with our team, but the activity around you will seem to fade into the background.
After your procedure, we change the mixture to pure oxygen to help dissipate the effects of the nitrous. You will leave our office feeling fully refreshed and able to resume your usual daily activities.
Don’t let dental anxiety deprive you of a healthy smile. Call Westport Plaza Dental Associates today to learn how nitrous oxide can help you relax and get the care you need.
