Sedation Dentistry

If you are filled with dread at the very thought of attending the dentist, you are likely suffering from “Dentophobia.” For many, this fear is triggered by the prospect of undergoing even the simplest dental treatments. Avoiding the dentist will likely result in your oral health suffering. At Seacrest Dental, we take Dentophobia extremely seriously and will do everything that we can to help our patients combat their fears.

Creating more positive associations with visiting the dentist is the first step we will take towards helping you beat your fears. Our team is made up of a group of caring, compassionate, and understanding individuals. In every interaction you have with a member of the Seacrest Dental team, your relaxation and comfort are the priority.

When it comes time for your checkup or treatment, we can offer you sedation dentistry to help you relax. Through the controlled use of a safe, reliable sedative, you can receive dental treatment without the crippling fear that is associated with Dentophobia. Your treatment will be over before you know it, and you will be one step closer toward conquering your fear.

Nitrous Oxide

For patients who suffer from dental anxiety or Dentophobia, we can provide sedation with nitrous oxide. Laughing gas, as it is better known, has shown to be extremely effective as a form of sedation for use during dental treatments. The gas is fed through a mouth and nose piece, which is controlled by an experienced dental professional.

When you are sedated with nitrous oxide, you will feel drowsy, relaxed and giddy. In fact, many patients have no recollection of being in the dentist’s chair at all. The gas is also fast-acting and takes a short time to wear off.
