Our experienced medical staff can administer nitrous oxide safely and effectively.
If you feel uneasy or uncomfortable when visiting the dentist for a procedure, you’re certainly not alone. The discomfort you feel during the procedure, combined with the bright lights and unusual sounds, can put anyone on edge. At Drs. Batten & Health Family Dentistry, we understand that many of our patients are nervous when then visit our practice. In order to help you feel more comfortable and relaxed during your treatment, we can provide you with nitrous oxide, a safe and effective sedative agent.
Nitrous oxide is commonly used in medical treatments to provide a relaxing sensation to patients. It is mixed with oxygen and inhaled through a small mask that fits over the nose. You don’t have to get a shot to feel relaxed – instead, you can just lay back and breathe normally. The medication will move to your bloodstream quickly, providing an almost instantaneous effect. Some patients report a pleasant tingling in their legs and arms, while others feel their extremities become heavier. The ultimate sensation is a feeling of relaxation that reduces your treatment-related fears and anxieties.
Our experienced medical staff can administer nitrous oxide safely and effectively. The medication wears off soon after you remove the mask, allowing you to return to your normal activities. We can provide this option for you when you’re having a procedure performed in our office, which is conveniently located for patients in the Winston-Salem, North Carolina area. Our dental professionals provide a wide range of dental services and treatments, including cleanings, tooth extractions, crowns, bridges, root canals, dental implants, sealants, exams, fillings, and emergency work.
At Drs. Batten & Heath Family Dentistry, we offer nitrous oxide to residents of Walkertown, Winston-Salem, Belews Creek, Kernersville, Walnut Cove, Stokesdale, Summerfield, Oak Ridge, and Wallburg, North Carolina.
