Frequently Asked Questions
Relaxation dentistry, also known as sedation dentistry, involves the use of medication to help patients feel more relaxed and comfortable during dental procedures. At Fox Point Dental, we can use a mild sedation (nitrous oxide) upon request.
When administered by a qualified dental professional, relaxation dentistry is generally considered safe. However, as with any medical procedure, there are potential risks and side effects, such as allergic reactions, respiratory depression, and cardiovascular problems. It's important to discuss your medical history and any medications you're taking with us beforehand.
Relaxation dentistry may be appropriate for people who experience dental anxiety or fear, have a low pain threshold, have a sensitive gag reflex, require extensive dental work, or have a physical or cognitive disability that makes it difficult to sit still or cooperate during a procedure. We'll help you figure out if it's right for you.
