Comfort dentistry

Are you Anxious or Apprehensive about Going to the Dentist?

You are not alone. In fact, approximately 40 million Americans avoid the dentist because of fear and anxiety, according to the Academy of General Dentistry. People who experience dental phobia may postpone or avoid vital dental appointments, and multiple dental visits are out of the question! Neglecting your oral health can lead to tooth loss, disease, and overall health problems.

Our team at Beacon Hill Dental is here to help you overcome your dental anxiety and regain your confidence about visiting the dentist. We offer two kinds of sedation: nitrous oxide sedation and oral conscious sedation.

Nitrous oxide sedation involves a colorless, odorless gas inhaled through a nasal mask. You may know nitrous oxide as “laughing gas.” We’ll control the amount of nitrous you receive to ensure your safety. Once you begin breathing the gas, you’ll feel relaxed, so we can perform your dental work while you stay completely comfortable. The effects of nitrous oxide subside once we remove your mask, so if nitrous is the only anesthesia you receive, you can drive yourself home following the visit and continue your daily activities as normal.

Oral conscious sedation involves a medication taken orally prior to your visit. This method allows you to feel relaxed in the dental chair, while remaining conscious and able to respond to questions. Some patients become so relaxed that they fall asleep! This type of sedation does require that you have a driver bring you to and from your dental appointment and not drive for 24 hours. The effects of the sedative typically subside the following day.
