There are very few people who would consider the dentist’s office their favorite place to be. In fact, many actively avoid their appointments because of anxiety or fear, leaving their oral health to suffer as a result. At Today’s Dental, helping patients feel comfortable is always a top priority for our team. That’s why Dr. Michael Allport offers nitrous oxide sedation as a service to create a relaxed atmosphere during your procedure. Contact our Dayton, TN location today to schedule your first appointment!
Nitrous oxide sedation may benefit you if any of the following conditions sound familiar:
There is a reason nitrous oxide is often called “laughing gas.” At the beginning of the appointment, our team will set you up with a nasal mask that will stay in place throughout your care. Within minutes of breathing it in, you should start feeling lighter and calmer – in fact, some people experience euphoria! This helps Dr. Allport provide your procedure in a much more comfortable environment.
One of the biggest benefits of nitrous oxide sedation is that the effects actually wear off just as quickly as they begin once the mask is removed at the end of your visit. That means you’ll be able to return to work, head back to school, and even drive yourself around town with virtually no downtime required.
