Addressing Dental Anxiety
During consultations, Dr. Karren goes over individual concerns and helps patients understand their treatment options in full. While knowledge of a procedure helps extinguish most fears, some anxieties cannot be soothed by words alone. With nitrous oxide, Dr. Karren can guarantee your comfort during procedures and ensures that every patient safely receives this sedation method.
How Does Nitrous Oxide Work?
Nitrous oxide or, “laughing gas,” is supplied via mask and is fast-acting. This sedation method is especially beneficial during oral surgeries such as wisdom teeth extraction. Once inhaled, the gas allows you to completely relax while still retaining enough consciousness to be aware of your immediate surroundings. While you may at least sense that you are receiving treatment, you won’t feel any discomfort, as the nitrous has a complete numbing effect.
After procedures, it doesn’t take long for nitrous to wear off, meaning you won’t have to worry about side-effects getting in the way of your day. Dr. Karren takes care to go over your medical history to ensure that there will not be any allergic reactions to this method of sedation. Nitrous oxide has maintained a positive reputation for a good reason: It’s a convenient and reliable way to keep patients of all ages still and comfortable during treatments.
At Karren Family Dental we offer many services to improve the smile. Whether you need root canal therapy, crowns, or extractions, we can provide you with an effective treatment plan. With nitrous oxide at the ready, you won’t have to worry about a negative experience. Dr. Karren works with patients to guarantee their comfort.
