Gregory Robins Family Dentistry in West Covina doesn't think dental anxiety is a laughing matter. To help patients, the practice is offering nitrous oxide to improve patient comfort.
WEST COVINA, CA, March 01, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Have you ever witnessed a parent playing tug-of-war with his/her child before going into a doctor's office? Could you relate to that anxiety? A little anxiety is normal, but you don't want it to deter you from going to the dentist office for annual checkups or treatment, especially when your oral health is at stake.
To help ensure a patient is relaxed, Gregory Robins Family Dentistry office in West Covina offers nitrous oxide for patients needing a little extra help relaxing in the dental chair.
"Many patients are nervous about going to the dentist, and the interesting thing is, they also get anxiety thinking about sedation. We use nitrous oxide to treat dental anxiety, and it works well for our patients," explains Dr. Robins, West Covina dentist.
Why would patients be nervous about receiving sedation, such as nitrous oxide? That's because people tend to relate sedation only to general anesthesia, which puts a patient under. That's not considered conscious sedation, which is a sedation technique that utilizes a sedative or anesthetic to reduce pain and tension during a procedure.
Typically, conscious sedation allows a patient to be awake during treatment. They usually don't recall the appointment, but they are awake during it and are able to respond to
Nitrous Oxide is a safe sedation agent that's categorized as conscious sedation. For patients, nitrous oxide makes it possible to do the following:
- Remain awake during a treatment or procedure
- Can maintain a rational thought process
- Respond to touch and speech
This is one of the most safe and effective sedation techniques, especially for minor dental procedures. While nitrous oxide is suitable for most people, it's still important to discuss the option beforehand with a dentist.
Breathe a sigh of relief (or nitrous oxide) once you settle in for your dental appointment with one of the dentists at the West Covina dentistry office.
