Some people feel a sense of apprehension towards dental treatments. Many reasons feed into this dental anxiety, but regardless of their origins, our patients in North Naples can expect that Dr. Michael Gostigian, DMD will take measures to ensure a smooth and calming dental experience.
Dr. Gostigian and his team at Bonita Grande Dental are understanding and will review your dental procedure so you will know what to expect. We may recommend a conscious sedation treatment like inhaled nitrous oxide, commonly known as laughing gas, if you feel incredibly anxious.
Awake and Responsive While Calm and Relaxed
Nitrous oxide is dispensed through a small mask over your nose. You may experience a dreamlike state where you are aware enough to communicate with our team but remain relaxed and unfocused throughout the procedure. The advantage of nitrous oxide is that once discontinued, the effects of the gas wear off quickly.
Unlike other sedation options, nitrous oxide lacks most after-effects and will not interfere with the resumption of your normal daily activities after your appointment. It's advantageous as you may not worry about driving home from your appointment.
Nitrous oxide administered under your dentist's supervision is safe enough for children and adults alike.
