Sedation Dentistry (conscious sedation and nitrous oxide)
Our dentist can relieve your fear and anxiety with sedation dentistry. At Harrisville Dental Center, we make sure to offer the most comfortable environment for our patients. Dr. LeBlanc is certified in nitrous oxide and conscious sedation.
Nitrous oxide is mixed with oxygen and administered to the patient via a nasal mask (need picture). Patients breathe normally as the concentration of nitrous oxide gas in the mixture is adjusted to the proper level. The patient will remain awake and responsive, but anxiety levels will typically diminish.
Why Sedation Dentistry?
You might want to choose sedation for several reasons. Unpleasant past experiences, phobias, anxiety and stress are all common reasons to consider some sort of sedation. Our dentists will approach your treatments while considering these modalities. Feel free to discuss these options if you feel as though you may need some help regarding the completion of your dental treatments.
