Fear or anxiety about going to the dentist? At Endicott Dental, we offer complementary nitrous oxide sedation for patients who are candidates for it.
1) NITROUS OXIDE GAS (laughing gas), which combined with oxygen to deliver a pleasant relaxing feeling, is delivered through a nosepiece. Nitrous oxide is unlike many drugs in that it is not absorbed into your body but passes through your body and wears off within minutes after it is removed.
2) ORAL SEDATION is another option for treating a patient who is apprehensive about having dental procedures performed. An oral medication is taken one hour prior to the dental appointment. There are many different medications that can be used for oral sedation. A driver to and from your appointment will be required.
