Keeping Our Patients Calm
Dental sedation refers to a variety of techniques used to make patients more comfortable during dental procedures. Our dentists can help determine if dental sedation is an ideal choice for you.
At Gage Dentistry, we do everything we can to help patients feel relaxed and comfortable during their dental appointments. In addition to offering sedation, we will work at your pace, take breaks when you need them, and provide calm reassurance as needed.
Nitrous Oxide (Laughing Gas)
Nitrous oxide is inhaled through the mouth and nose. The medication calms patients even though they remain awake and able to communicate. It also tends to reduce anxiety, increase your pain threshold, reduce the gag reflex, and make time pass more quickly.
