Soft Touch Dentists Provides Washington, DC Patients with Nitrous Oxide for Relaxing Procedures
Dental work doesn’t have to be the notoriously unpleasant experience many patients believe it to be. With sedation options, a procedure can be relaxing, comfortable and pain-free. There are many forms of sedatives, but the most common sedative used in dentistry is Nitrous Oxide. This sedative works to soothe and calm patients, while simultaneously acting a painkiller. Soft Touch Dentists offers Nitrous Oxide as a sedative at their Washington, DC dental office, providing their patients with a more relaxing experience during their dental procedure.
Nitrous Oxide is often referred to as “laughing gas.” This common name is derived from the euphoric feeling that patients have upon inhaling the gas. The sedative is an odorless gas with a slightly sweet smell and taste. In addition to its relaxing properties, Nitrous Oxide also has anesthetic properties. Patients do not feel any pain during the dental procedure because the gas blocks the sensation, acting as both an anesthetic and a painkiller. Instead, patients can sit back and relax while their teeth are worked on by experienced dental professional.
To make the experience more relaxing for the patient, Nitrous Oxide is administered safely under Soft Touch Dentists professional supervision prior to the procedure. Nitrous Oxide allows the patient to feel completely relaxed and at ease while they undergo their dental work. Any anxiety and fear fades away after the Nitrous Oxide is administered. The professionals at Soft Touch Dentists strive to ensure the patient is calm and that they are feeling peaceful and at ease before beginning any work. When using Nitrous Oxide, nearly all dental procedures can be completed, pain and stress-free, and often in a single dental visit.
Following the procedure, the effects of the Nitrous Oxide wear off fairly quickly. There is no need to worry about finding someone to transport you home. In most cases, you will be able to drive yourself and continue on with your normal daily schedule. Nitrous Oxide provides a great solution for patients that treat their dental visits with anxiety.
