Many people experience fear of the dentist at some point in their lives. Often patients have had a bad experience in the past, making it difficult to trust another dentist. Whether the fear stems from previous work or thinking about what could happen, anxiety over dentist visits is treatable. At Dr. Rogers practice, we aim to make patients as comfortable as possible so we can help them overcome their fear.
Sedation dentistry allows us to relax patients by administering various local anesthesia levels as needed. We use Nitrous Oxide, commonly known as “laughing gas.” Nitrous Oxide is a safe sedative agent that is mixed with oxygen and inhaled through a breathing mask. It works very well for dental procedures because it does not typically put patients to sleep. Sedation dentistry patients are able to hear me and respond to questions. By conquering their fear through this process, many people are able to put trust in dental procedures at Dr. Rogers’ practice.
