At Moffitt Dental, we are committed to making sure you get the high quality dental care you need. Often, patients will put off needed dental care because of anxiety about treatment. By offering our patients a variety of sedation dentistry options, we remove that barrier to care. It is our priority to make sure you receive the best dental care in a comfortable and gentle environment.
Quality dental care should not hurt. We provide treatment that our patients can trust. Our compassionte staff helps you relax during your visit, and our doctors always uses the latest treatment techniques to ensure your peace of mind.
If you suffer from dental anxiety, Dr. Moffitt may recommend oral sedation. These pills tone down activity in the parts of your brain that cause you to feel anxious or afraid. Remember, if you take oral sedation, you cannot drive before or after your appointment. Bring a friend or family member with you to make sure you arrive and get back home safely following your appointment.
Nitrous Oxide (Laughing Gas)
If you are anxious about your dental treatment, Dr. Moffitt can administer nitrous oxide (commonly known as “laughing gas”) to help you feel more at ease during your visit.
At Moffitt Dental, laughing gas is administered using a mask, allowing you to relax within minutes. If you are feeling nervous about an upcoming appointment, ask about nitrous oxide. Most of our patients are good candidates for this well tolerated sedation option, including our pediatric patients.
Dental anxiety doesn't have to keep you or your family from receiving needed dental care. Call Moffitt Dental to schedule your sedation dentistry appointment today!
