Experience Comfortable Treatment with Dental Sedation
Some patients who are especially anxious about going to the dentist will benefit from sedation. Here at Miner Dental, we offer inhaled sedation using laughing gas. This method of sedation offers effective help at calming the most anxious of nerves. It is FDA approved and completely safe, even for kids!
Expert administration of sedation is the key to helping our patients get the most out of it. You’ll breathe in the laughing gas through a comfortable mask. In a matter of minutes, the gas will begin to give you a warm and fuzzy feeling all over. Pretty soon, the thought of being at the dentist office won’t bother you at all.
At the end of your appointment, we’ll remove the mask, and in no time, you’ll feel completely normal again and able to drive yourself home.
