If you need dental treatment but you suffer from fear, anxiety, or stress about it, we have the solution for you here at Baltimore Center for Advanced Dentistry. Instead of avoiding or postponing vital dental care, our sedation dentist in Lutherville MD can offer you either nitrous-oxide or oral sedation to set your mind at ease.
Nitrous-oxide is a gas that is popularly known as laughing gas for its ability to make patients relaxed and calm. It has a sweet smell and is non-irritating. Nitrous-oxide is safe and effective. Our sedation dentist administers it through a device that looks like an oxygen mask. You breathe in and out normally. And you will stay conscious throughout. You don’t have to go “under” in order to benefit from sedation. You can hear and respond to questions while taking nitrous-oxide. We understand, though, that not everyone is the same and your unique needs and preferences are taken into account by also providing oral sedation. This is done by having you take a pill about an hour before you are scheduled to arrive at our office. The result will be a state of deep relaxation, making it easy for you to undergo your dental treatment. Unlike with nitrous-oxide, you will wake up afterward and will have little or no recollection of what transpired. You can be confident that our sedation dentist in Lutherville MD is skilled and experienced in the use of oral sedation, and you will be monitored the entire time. In addition to the most common reason for using sedation, which is to ease nervousness, it is also helpful when there is a great deal of work to be done in a single appointment, you are scared of needles for getting anesthesia, or if you have problems staying still in the dental chair.
Our sedation dentist in Lutherville MD is committed to your comfort as well as your dental health. Call us and schedule an appointment.
