For some people, a trip to the dentist is a very stressful time. Dental phobia and fear of pain are not uncommon in dental patients. For people who need help relaxing in the dentist chair, sedation dentistry is available.
- Oral sedation. Taken the night before or the day of the appointment, oral sedatives relax but are not for pain relief.
- Nitrous oxide. “Laughing gas” is inhaled through a mask to relax, with a local anesthetic used to eliminate pain.
Fortson Dentistry makes your dental visit as comfortable as possible so you can enjoy the benefits of regular dentist visits and a clean oral bill of health.
