Do you put patients to sleep for treatment?
We know many people have a fear of visiting the dentist and experience mild to severe dental anxiety. In fact, millions of Americans experience some level of dental anxiety, so you are not alone.
At Monroe Dental Arts, we pride ourselves in catering to patients who have had a bad experience or have a fear of the dentist and look forward to turning that feeling around.
Dr. H.K. Virdee is compassionate and extremely gentle. We put you in charge of your appointment and will stop if you feel uncomfortable at any time. If you require a little something extra to relax, we offer nitrous oxide.
Nitrous oxide, also known as sweet air or laughing gas, can help you relax for your appointment. It reduces anxiety with very few side effects. Some patients describe feeling relaxed, at ease, and euphoric. It takes the edge off your anxiety and allows us to proceed with your dental treatment.
We can control the amount of nitrous oxide you receive with the turn of a valve, which allows us to find the right amount for you so that you are comfortable.
Nitrous oxide leaves your system quickly, so you can drive home from your appointment without any worries.
