We cater to the brave and the not-so-brave! Nitrous oxide, an inhalation gas, creates a calming feeling for patients of all ages. It has a quick onset, and patients recover from the light sedative effect within minutes. Be sure to ask us when making your appointment if you would like to benefit from this service.
We have discovered over the years that fear of dentists can be a significant barrier for patients scheduling needed treatment. Statistics show that 10-75% of patients have mild, moderate, or severe fear regarding dental visits. Dentists are well aware of the fear factor. We do everything we can to create an inviting environment, including relaxation techniques, technological advances such as dental lasers to minimize discomfort, and conscious sedation. Hogan Family Dental offers nitrous oxide sedation for patients with mild-to-moderate anxiety.
