Imagine the following: You are stretched out in a dental chair at the start of a checkup. As a dental assistant wraps a paper bib around your neck and clicks on a bright overhead light, you tense up and your heart begins to pound. If this sounds at all like you, sedation dentistry from Harris Dental in Phoenix can help.
Millions of people experience heightened stress levels when they go to the dentist. Sometimes it’s so intense, people skip the dentist altogether. This is a coping mechanism that psychologists call “avoidence.” The problem with it, of course, is that it puts your dental health at risk.
- Nitrous oxide. Popularly called laughing gas, nitrous oxide puts you in a very relaxed state. It is safe and effective, works quickly, and wears off quickly. It’s been used in dentistry for more than one hundred years.
- Oral conscious sedation involves taking a sedative before your scheduled appointment. It puts you in a deeply relaxed state.
