At Prosthodontics of Princeton, we strive to provide a safe, comfortable, and even enjoyable experience. Unfortunately, we understand that certain people have fears or anxiety associated with professional dentistry. Some of these fears can even prevent people from receiving the treatment they need to maintain proper oral health. For this reason, we offer sedation options that help our patients relax during their appointment.
Sedation dentistry may be ideal for patients who:
Nitrous oxide, or “laughing gas,” is perhaps the most common form of sedation dentistry. It is also one of the safest and most effective ways to alleviate anxiety or discomfort. The gas is administered through a special mask that fits over your nose during your procedure.
Nitrous oxide is a common choice because it takes effect and wears off within minutes. It is the only form of sedation that allows you to drive yourself home following a procedure. In many cases, nitrous oxide is used in conjunction with oral sedation.
Safety and Sedation Dentistry
Before your procedure, we will review your medical history to determine if you are a suitable candidate for sedation dentistry. Dr. Isaacson, Dr. Reinhardt and Dr. Milone have received extensive training to safely and effectively administer dental sedation. Our office also follows specific guidelines set by the American Dental Association to ensure your safety.
If you are worried about safety, be sure to ask any questions and voice concerns. Above all else, your comfort, and peace of mind are our top priority. It is why we offer sedation dentistry in the first place!
