If going to the dentist causes you any stress or makes you anxious, nitrous sedations can help you deal with your feeling of anxiety. Hope Dental Group typically uses the following levels of sedation for patients that are anxious about their dental visits.
- Light Sedation: The patient is awake and lucid. This level of sedation treats both physical and psychological symptoms of mild anxiety
- Moderate Sedation: The patient is conscious but in a state of deep relaxation. The patient will be able to communicate with Dr. Bhalla.
Sedation dentistry makes it easy for patients to relax and helps the dentist carry out their work. It is a very safe and common procedure and we would be happy to answer any question you may have about nitrous sedation.
