Dental anxiety is very common, and often prevents patients from receiving the dental care they want or need. Dr. Robert Miller, DDS, offers oral conscious sedation and nitrous oxide to help patients feel more relaxed during any kind of dental treatment.
There’s no need to sacrifice your health for your comfort anymore. Our sedation dentistry techniques will allow you to remain calm and pain-free during your procedure. You’ll be surprised by how pleasant that dental crown, root canal, or whitening treatment can really be!
Oral Conscious Sedation
Oral conscious sedation is a simple sedation method that puts patients into a state of deep relaxation throughout their visit. There are no needles or gases involved. All you have to do is take a pill shortly before your appointment!
Dr. Miller will prescribe the medication that’s right for you. Oral conscious sedation will relax you, and may put you into a light sleep, but you will still be able to communicate with our dental team. After your appointment, you will have little to no memory of the procedure.
Nitrous oxide, or “laughing gas,” does not cause you to fall asleep, but will produce a euphoric and relaxed feeling during your procedure. You will breathe in the nitrous oxide through the nose. After your appointment, the gas will immediately wear off, and you will likely be able to drive yourself home!
Reduce Your Anxiety with a Loyal Friend
Many of our patients find huge relief in having companionship throughout their appointment. We provide dogs upon request to help reduce patient anxiety. Our loving dogs can help you feel the comfort and reassurance you need throughout your procedure.
