Do you feel nervous or anxious about visiting the dentist? At Biloxi Family Dental Care, we provide sedation dentistry to help you feel comfortable and calm during your dental visit. Our caring dentist, Dr. Teets, offers two types of sedation dentistry:
- Nitrous oxide (laughing gas): nitrous oxide is a gas you inhale during your dental treatment to help you feel at ease. Nitrous oxide wears off within a few minutes of the end of the treatment, and you are legal to drive after using nitrous oxide.
- Oral sedation: oral sedation involves taking a medication by mouth before your dental visit. Oral sedation will help you feel relaxed during your dental visit, and you may not remember portions of your treatment.
Both nitrous oxide and oral sedation are very safe. We are committed to helping you have a pleasant, positive dental experience, and sedation dentistry is a wonderful option for many patients who fear visiting the dentist. We welcome you to call or visit our Biloxi, Mississippi dental office today to learn more about how we can help you have a more enjoyable dental experience!
