For many Palm Beach Gardens dental patients, the idea of going to the dentist is worse than suffering through a tooth ache.
In fact, about 9 to 15% of Americans choose not to go to the dentist due to their anxiety or fear. With all of the benefits of routine dental check-ups, it is important to have options for these patients with dental phobia.
A great option for these West Palm Beach, Jupiter and Wellington patients with anxiety about the dentist’s office is sedation dentistry. Sedation dentistry can be used on more invasive procedures, as well as a simple check-up.
With Nitrous Oxide Sedation,
Palm Beach Gardens patients are able to relax during dental procedures. This is not a form of sleep dentistry, patients are typically awake.
Before the procedure,
Dr. Gruner will have you inhale nitrous oxide combined with oxygen through a mask over your nose. This gas, also known as “laughing gas” will help you to relax during your procedure. Additionally, with this form of sedation the gas wears off quickly and you will be able to drive yourself home.
If you are interested in having your dental procedures done with Nitrous Oxide Sedation and you live in the West Palm Beach, Jupiter, Palm Beach Gardens or Wellington, Florida area, call to schedule your dental consultation.
