Sedation Dentistry

Many people have dental anxiety that can make it stressful to get the dental care treatments they need for optimal health. At Northampton Dental, we put our patients first, especially their comfort. Our office has been designed to make our patients feel at ease when they visit us for their dental care. We offer many comfort amenities and a friendly, caring staff. We also offer sedation dentistry services to ensure a relaxed experience for our patients with dental anxiety.

We understand that dental treatments can feel invasive and make some of our patients nervous. Our treatment rooms have been created to offer creature comforts in a relaxing environment. Flat screen TVs, wireless headphones and access to music is available to help put you at ease during your dental treatments. When you need extra help relaxing, we offer sedation options to soothe your nerves.

Nitrous Oxide

One of the safest and most effective options in sedation dentistry is nitrous oxide. Referred to as “laughing gas”, nitrous oxide can quickly put you at ease with just a few deep breaths. You are still aware and conscious, yet you feel calm and euphoric. This can help you relax while you receive your dental treatments, making it comfortable for you to get the oral care you need. Once your treatment is completed, the effects dissipate in just minutes. This allows you to drive home and feel clear-headed after your appointment.

You should never let dental anxiety interfere with getting the oral care you need for a healthy smile. If you have experienced stress when visiting the dentist in the past, contact our office today for a consultation and talk to us about our sedation dentistry options. We can ensure you have a comfortable, relaxing experience when you come to Northampton Dental for your oral health needs.
