Anesthetics & Sedation
For some people, no matter how gentle the staff or how comfortable the office, dental anxiety can be a paralyzing issue. We understand that many times, this all-too-real fear of dental treatment can stop people from visiting the dentist entirely. The team at Farming Dental and Orthodontics doesn’t want anything standing in the way of people getting the healthcare they need to maintain a healthy smile for years to come, so we offer two types of anesthesia and sedation to take any stress and fear out of your appointment. With both, you will remain awake during the process, so you can still converse with our staff if need be.
You are probably more familiar with nitrous oxide by its common name, “laughing gas.” It’s a sweet-smelling, colorless gas that you safely inhale and leaves you feeling relaxed, and even giddy. With this option, you’ll be able to sit through your visit with ease, as your worries about any dental treatment slip away. After the treatment is done, you’ll be feeling back to normal in just a few minutes.
Oral Conscious Sedation
Stronger than nitrous oxide, oral conscious sedation is another option we provide to help you relax. It’s administered through a prescribed pill that you take about an hour before your appointment, meaning you’ll feel worry-free by the time you sit down to get started. This form of sedation takes around 3 hours to wear off, so it’s important to get someone to take you home after your visit.
Our practice believes in catering to our patients not only by personalizing treatment, but also in terms of the comfort and conveniences we provide throughout our office. At Farmington Dental and Orthodontics, you don’t have to settle for a cold, clinical environment that makes you impatient to leave. We want you to feel at home here!
