Did you know that about 40 million Americans suffer from dental anxiety? Sadly, this anxiety can make some people hesitant to visit the dentist. However, avoiding the dentist can be detrimental to your oral health, especially over time. Fortunately, there are a few things you could do to overcome this anxiety, including sedation dentistry.

For example, one of the most common types of sedation is nitrous oxide, which is more frequently known as laughing gas. This treatment is a common choice because it is simple to administer and because there are very few side effects. In fact, a few minutes after treatment you will be ready to drive yourself home. If you choose laughing gas, you probably won’t fall asleep—but you will be extremely relaxed during treatment.

Here at Orlando Family Dentistry, LLC, we strive to make you feel comfortable as you undergo treatment for your oral care. That is why our staff is devoted to helping you feel safe and in good hands while you are sharing your day with us.
