For many, dental visits bring anxiety and fears. Sometimes a bad dental experience in the past can ruin one’s view of the dentist office for life. If you are uneasy in the dental chair, sedation dentistry can help. Sedation dentistry can completely change the way you view your dental experience.

Your dentist can help you determine the best fit for your upcoming appointments. If you are interested in sedation dentistry in Wabash, IN, call our office to schedule a visit!
Nitrous oxide uses a mask placed over the nose to administer a gas sedation. When you put the mask on, the sedation will begin to work within minutes. Nitrous oxide helps you to feel relaxed and at ease throughout any appointment. You won’t be bothered by surrounding sounds and smells, but you can communicate with your dentist if needed. One advantage of nitrous oxide is that the sedation begins to wear away as soon as you remove the mask. This allows you to resume your normal activities following your appointment. Nitrous oxide is safe for both adults and children and is one of the most common forms of sedation.
