Nitrous Oxide Can Help Edison Patients Relax At Last and Receive the Dental Care They Need to Smile Brighter
December 6, 2013
Dental fear is a very common and very real problem among Americans – in fact, a vast majority of the population has reported in various studies that they experience some level of anxiety or stress when faced with an impending visit to their local dentist. Here at Resnick and Rosenfeld, DDS, our team understands and empathizes with how crippling this fear can be; however, it’s important for patients in Edison and beyond to maintain regular check-ups with our office so that they can receive the crucial oral health care they need to keep their smile happy and healthy. After all, if left untreated for too longer, dental problems can get out of hand and end up requiring even more time and money to fix than before. So what can you do to overcome your dental anxiety? Thankfully, Dr. Resnick and Dr. Rosenfeld offer a solution: nitrous oxide. With this effective sedation dentistry method, we can help take the edge off of your negative feelings, allowing you to feel comfortable and content as we do all the heavy lifting.
How does nitrous oxide work?
It’s simple – once you’ve settled into your comfy seat, we’ll administer nitrous oxide through a mask that fits over your nose, and very quickly, you’ll begin to experience feelings of comfort, warmth, and even maybe euphoria. If the dose seems too strong or too weak, no problem – our team can easily adjust the amount of gas you’re receiving in order to ensure complete relaxation.
Unlike other sedation dentistry methods, nitrous oxide has the distinct advantage of possessing effects that wear off in a matter of minutes. That means no frustrating downtime or arranging rides with friends or family – you’ll be back to normal immediately after your dental work is completed, with no recovery time required!
