If you’re afraid of the dentist, you’re not alone. Dental anxiety is incredibly common, especially before a big procedure such as a wisdom tooth extraction or a root canal. At MGS Dental, we offer different types of sedation to help eliminate feelings of anxiety and allow you to experience your procedure in a calm and pain-free manner. Here are just some of them:
IV sedation is a very effective form of sedation dentistry that allows the patient to become sedated very quickly as well as allow the dentist to adjust the amount of sedative easily. IV sedation dentistry works by making a small insertion into a vein, usually into your arm, and trickling a small amount of sedative into the bloodstream. This form of sedation is great for patients with severe dental anxiety since it works quickly, and it offers a high level of sedation so that many patients don’t even remember the procedure whatsoever.
Nitrous oxide, often referred to as “laughing gas,” is a safe, hypoallergenic dental anxiety sedation method that consists of a mix of a nitrogen and oxygen gases. The sedation works by decreasing dental anxiety, allowing you to feel like you’re in a calmer, euphoric state after inhaling the gas mixture.
NuCalm is a form of sedation that uses a combination of technologies instead of drugs to ease dental anxiety. NuCalm works by mimicking the natural conditions that your brain experiences when you are falling asleep. To learn more about NuCalm and how it can help your dental anxiety, visit nucalm.com.
