Dr. Gulu offers nitrous sedation to help patients experience a more comfortable procedure.
Nitrous is used to relieve both pain and anxiety. Sedation is commonly used during restorative procedures such as bridges, crowns and fillings. Sedation may also be used to help relax patients who suffer from moderate to severe anxiety and dental phobia.
Applied through a mask, the gas sedates a patient for the duration of an exam or procedure. The treatment allows a patient to remain conscious, giving them the ability to talk to Dr. Gulu during the procedure. The effects of nitrous wear off soon after the mask is removed.
If you have questions about the methods and safety of sedation dentistry, we are happy to answer your concerns. Contact our office today and schedule an appointment with us!
