Some people feel a great deal of fear and anxiety about visiting the dentist. In these cases, oral sedation may be a safe and effective option.
If this option is right for you, Dr. Fattore will prescribe an oral sedative for you to take prior to your appointment. This way you’ll be relaxed by the time you sit down in the exam room. Alternatively, the dentist can provide you with laughing gas (nitrous oxide) during your appointment to help calm you. As always, we will ensure that you’re safe and comfortable the entire time by monitoring your vital signs and making any necessary adjustments. Nitrous Oxide is also safe and effective for calming children who are anxious about visiting the dentist.
