Fear is a powerful emotion. If you have claustrophobia, you take a pass on cave exploration. If you have a fear of heights, you avoid sky diving. People with dentophobia fear dentists, and avoid dental care at all costs. At Priority Dental in Casper we can help our patients do something about it.
The problem with avoiding the dentist is that it puts your dental health at risk. Some people avoid the dentist entirely, while others only manage appointments when a condition gets so bad, they can’t take it anymore. At that point treatment may, of necessity, be extreme – something that could have been prevented with regular checkups.
If you are coping with dental phobia, sedation dentistry may be just the answer you need. We offer nitrous oxide.
Popularly called laughing gas, nitrous oxide puts you in a very relaxed state. It is safe and effective, works quickly, and wears off quickly. You wear a mask over your mouth and nose and inhale an odorless gas. You may or may not laugh, but you will be in a deeply relaxed state.
Nitrous oxide has been used in dentistry for more than one hundred years.
