Dental anxiety and nerves are real. In fact, there are many people who experience them. If you’re one of these people, Dr. Tontra Lowe, DDS and our dental team have some information that might help you feel more calm, comfortable, and relaxed in the dental chair.
We proudly provide pain-free injections to help you avoid any discomfort during your appointment. This means we numb the area with an anesthetic gel, spray, or rinse before we inject the needle. The numbing agent will make it so you won’t feel a thing when your dentist further numbs your mouth before treatment.
We also do everything we can to help you feel comfortable at our office. In fact, we try to give you the red-carpet treatment. We ensure a warm and pleasant waiting room as well as a comfortable dental chair and treatment room. We also help you relax by allowing you to ask questions, listen to music, and even watch movies during your appointment.
Lastly, we provide a dental sedative that can help you wash your dental fears away. This sedative is called nitrous oxide, which is also known as laughing gas. Your dentist will place a mask over your nose and will ask you to inhale. As you breathe in the nitrous, you will begin to feel relaxed and comfortable. The sedative effects will wear away once the mask is taken off your nose.
