Are you anxious? Do you have a dental phobia? At Green Leaf Dentistry, Dr. Howell and her team endeavor to provide gentle and compassionate care in a relaxed, state-of-the-art setting. From the moment you walk in you will be greeted by a warm and friendly team member, after which you can relax in our comfortable waiting room and enjoy a complimentary cup of coffee or tea from our beverage station.
For patients with more severe dental anxiety, we also offer laughing gas or oral conscious sedation. Call us today to find out which one is best for you! Sedation can be safely used in combination with local anesthesia to give our patients a comfortable and pleasant treatment experience.
Nitrous oxide, commonly referred to as laughing gas, provides patients a feeling of euphoria and relaxation. While you will remain conscious throughout your treatment with Dr. Howell and her team, you will feel calm and relaxed. Fortunately, the effects of laughing gas are rapidly reversible, so you will be able to resume normal activities immediately, but with a restored, healthy smile!
Administered in pill form, this type of sedation effectively calms patients who suffer more severe dental anxiety, allowing them to undergo necessary dental treatment relatively stress-free. Because the medication is ingested, the effects are longer acting, and as such, patients should not drive and should arrange for transportation to and from their appointment.
Yes, our team is trained to administer both laughing gas and oral conscious sedation safely. We take every precaution to ensure safe, comfortable treatment for all our patients.
