Nitrous Oxide for Pearland, Texas Dental Patients
This mild sedation dentistry option is well-known for improving patient comfort.
Patient anxiety has long caused prospective patients to avoid even basic cleanings and exams, and this is a problem that dentists want to overcome. We want you to come see us; it’s essential for your oral health, and nothing is more important to us than that. One way that our dentists have found to help anxious patients is with nitrous oxide sedation dentistry at our Friendswood and Pearland, Texas dental offices. The more we can do to make you comfortable with nitrous oxide or one of our other sedation dentistry options, the more you’ll want to visit Dr. David C. Montz & Associates.
Because nitrous oxide is safe, effective, efficient, and mild, many patients prefer this method of dental sedation. You simply inhale the nitrous oxide gas, and within moments the pleasurable effects take hold. They wear off fairly quickly, making it easy for you to achieve the optimum level of sedation for you. And because the effects are mild and do wear off so quickly, you don’t have to trouble yourself with finding someone to drive you to and from dental appointments.
Many patients like to enhance their cleanings, exams, and other simple dental procedures with nitrous oxide at our Pearland and Friendswood dentist offices. The benefits of nitrous oxide include:
- Imrpoved comfort and a more pleasurable experience
- Safe and effective dental sedation
- Shorter recovery time than other forms of sedation
- Easy to administer and control
Nitrous oxide induces a feeling of warmth and euphoria, and many people call it “laughing gas” because of the happy feelings it can cause. If it’s your first time receiving nitrous oxide, we’ll thoroughly describe to you what to expect. You’ll wear a mask that delivers the nitrous oxide mixed with oxygen, and you control your level of sedation by the number of breaths you take while wearing the mask. You don’t have to be suffering from dental anxiety to opt for nitrous oxide. It can also help make sitting in the dental chair for a longer period of time more comfortable in general. Ask us at your next appointment if nitrous oxide might be right for you.
