Sedation dentistry is an effective solution for people who experience anxiety prior to and during their dental visits. Sedation dentistry does not put you to sleep. It induces a sense of deep relaxation that enables you to feel comfortable while we carry out our work.
Nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, is administered through an inhaler and is very effective at relieving anxiety. When properly administered, Nitrous Oxide is considered the safest conscious sedation agent available today. That is because it is simply combination of Nitrogen and Oxygen-the same components that are in the air we breathe. And since there is no drugs injected or ingested into your body, recovery is a non-event. Despite its inherent safety, careful administration and monitoring of the gas levels are still very important. At Lifetime Dental we have gone the extra mile to ensure even greater safety for you by installing a built in, state-of-the- art Nitrous Oxide System that is microprocessor controlled and fully armed to ensure perfect function at all times.
Neglecting your dental care can lead to serious problems with your oral health.
