Harrisonburg, VA Sedation Dentistry Helps Patients Relax
Many patients both young and old suffer from feelings of anxiety, nervousness, and even outright fear when faced with dental care. At Blue Stone Hills Dentistry, our doctors and staff members strive to foster a comfortable and welcoming office space, but we understand that this sometimes isn’t enough. With sedation dentistry, patients can achieve the level of relaxation they need while still being able to improve the health and beauty of their smile through professional care. Shenandoah Valley patients are welcome to contact us today to learn more or schedule an appointment.
Nitrous oxide (also known as “laughing gas”) is administered through a mask that fits comfortably over a person’s nose. After just a few minutes of breathing in, the patient should begin to feel more comfortable and content, allowing their treatment to proceed smoothly. The effects of nitrous oxide wear off just as quickly after the mask is removed, which means that patients are able to immediately return to work or school and even drive without the need for an escort.
