If a patient has dental anxiety they can be but on Nitrous Oxide Gas during the procedure. Also known as “laughing gas” A patient breathes the gas through their own cushioned nose piece that is taken home with them. This allows them to relax and stay calm during the procedure. After the procedure is finished, the patient breathes in 100% Oxygen so the patient returns to a normal state and they are able to drive home. This is the best solution for an anxious patient that has work or other engagements after the appointment.
If a patient has moderate to severe dental anxiety, we have an easy solution! Oral sedation pills are prescribed by Dr. Rabalais. This allows the patient to sleep and stay calm during the entire procedure. Patients are NOT allowed to drive to or from their appointment. A driver for the patient is required.
