Why is going to the dentist so STRESSFUL? It doesn’t have to be, which is why Dr. Langworthy and our team do everything we can to maintain a fun and laid-back environment in our dental office. You’ll often hear her or one of our team members laughing, singing, or attempting to do both! If our friendly team isn’t enough to calm your nerves, then we’re happy to offer sedation, a safe and proven way to make relaxing in the chair as easy as possible. Want to use sedation dentistry from our Fuquay-Varina, NC dentist at your next appointment? If so, be sure to give us a call and let us know.
Also known as “laughing gas,” nitrous oxide has been used to soothe anxious dental patients for over a century, and the reason for this is simple—it works! A small mask is placed over the nose that allows a patient to breathe in a mixture of the gas and oxygen, and within minutes, a warm feeling of calm will envelop them from head to toe. Even better, once the procedure is over and the mask is taken off, the effects of the sedation wear off quickly, allowing a patient to get straight back to their day.
