Rarely does a patient come to the dental office without feeling anxiety. Most feel at least a little anxious. We provide a relaxed, peaceful atmosphere at Rock Point Family Dentistry to help our patients feel at ease. Our warm and friendly staff has a gentle chairside manner that helps patients feel calm and relaxed.
Despite a pleasant ambience, calming tone and gentle ways, some patients still feel overly anxious when needing to undergo dental procedures. If this sounds like you, we welcome you to Rock Point Family Dentistry. We understand severe dental anxiety and we have sedation options to help ease your distress.
This is the sedation of choice for children. Laughing gas is one of the oldest and most used methods of sedation in the dental office. It is a safe procedure that uses laughing gas to induce a pleasant, relaxed state of mind. While it is a form of sedation that allows you to be awake during the procedure, occasionally one may fall asleep while under the influence of the gas. When the procedure is completed, your system is flushed with oxygen and you recover from the sedation within minutes.
If you have a dental phobia or anxiety about treatments, contact Rock Point Family Dentistry today. We can ensure that you are relaxed and comfortable during your time with us.
