At Mint Dental Care, we know how challenging it is for patients with dental anxiety to get the important care they need. We don’t want anyone to forego treatment for any reason and offer soothing sedation dentistry at our comfortable Tampa, FL dental office.
Nitrous Oxide for Short-Term Relaxation
Nitrous oxide or laughing gas is mild, short-term sedation option that won’t leave you with any drowsy after-effects. It is easy to administer because you inhale the nitrous and oxygen gas mix through a comfortable facial mask. In moments, you’ll feel the sedative effects that include a light tingling sensation and a feeling of comfort and well-being.
When we remove the mask, the effects wear off quickly, so you can drive yourself safely from your appointment.
Oral Conscious Sedation
Oral sedation involves taking an anti-anxiety medication about an hour before your appointment. This means that you will feel very drowsy and relaxed by the time you arrive with the help of a designated driver.
The medicine has long-term effects, so you will remain calm throughout your procedure. We can also combine oral sedation with nitrous oxide for an extremely relaxing and stress-free experience.
Of course, we always use strong local anesthetics to numb the area of the mouth we’re treating to ensure completely pain-free dental treatment.
