Safe, Calming Sedation Dentistry
Do you ever feel nervous about visiting the dentist? If so, you are not alone. At Elm Creek Dental, Dr. Carter and our team understand that dental anxiety is real. We want our nervous patients to feel comfortable seeing us for their dental health needs. As a result, we offer a safe and relaxing form of sedation with non IV conscious sedation.
When a patient fears visiting the dentist, they miss out on the crucial preventive dentistry procedures needed to maintain a healthy smile. Soon, their teeth and gums can become at risk of developing tooth decay, gum disease, and other common dental health problems. With sedation dentistry, we can help the patient enter a relaxed state throughout the duration of the procedure.
Also known as laughing gas, nitrous oxide is a gas administered through a comfortable mask. The patient remains conscious but will have little to no memory of the procedure. When receiving non IV conscious sedation, we will adjust the administration of sedatives to ensure you remain calm and relaxed the entire time. The effects will wear off as soon as the procedure ends, so you will be able to return to work or school.
Do I Qualify for Sedation?
Interested in our sedation options? Before receiving a sedative, we will look at your medical history and current health to ensure this provides the safest option. In most cases, nearly all patients qualify for nitrous oxide. To schedule your next dental appointment, call Elm Creek Dental in Maple Grove, MN, at (763) 416-0606.
