Dental Anxiety

We fully understand that going to the dentist can be a stressful or frightening experience for some, and we know that these feelings can often make it difficult for one to accept the care they need. This is why we seek to provide a peaceful, spa-like atmosphere at each of our locations in Toledo and Maumee, and why we offer the option of sedation dentistry.

If you’re so worried about a dental process you must undergo than you’re unable to relax or even concerned that you will not be able to get through the entire procedure, we offer a few different options for increased relaxation. Utilizing our sedition methods you can let your worries and inhibitions drift away. They will replace your feelings of worry with a peaceful, almost dreamlike state wherein your fear will simply no longer be an issue. In this way, we make it so that you can endure your process and receive the help you require.

The Benefits of Nitrous Oxide

One of the main components of our sedition therapy is nitrous oxide, commonly known as laughing gas.

  • When ingested through the nose through the medium of a facial mask, the gas will quickly go to work, removing your concerns and allowing you to relax. The amount of the gas you are allowed to inhale will be closely monitored to absolutely ensure your safety.
  • Once the gas takes effect, which happens almost instantly, you will no longer feel any pain at all. You will in fact feel very comfortable.
  • Once the process is complete we’ll remove your mask and the effects of the gas will quickly subside. For this reason, patients who have recently been under the influence of nitrous oxide are still perfectly capable of driving themselves home and continuing their day normally, unlike those who require longer-lasting anesthetics, like anti-anxiety medications. When it comes to the effects of the gas alone there is almost no recovery period at all.

So don’t let you fears hold you back from receiving the dentistry you require. We’re more than happy to help.
