For many people, the idea of being truly relaxed at the dentist’s office seems impossible. Here at Avion Dental & Orthodontics, we aim to keep our patients feeling safe and comfortable at all times no matter what kind of treatment they require. When you call for an appointment, please let us know if you or anyone in your family is feeling particularly anxious about receiving dental care; we can arrange for sedation dentistry in Dallas, TX to be provided on the day of the appointment to relieve any persistent nerves.
Nitrous oxide is a gentle sedative agent that’s perfectly safe for both adults and children. You’ll breathe it in through a small mask once it has been mixed with oxygen. Despite being a sedative, nitrous oxide doesn’t put you to sleep; you will still be able to hear and interact with your dentist, but you’ll be in a calm and comfortable state where the sights and sounds of the dental office won’t bother you. It only takes a few minutes for the effects of nitrous oxide to wear off once the treatment is complete.
