Sedation Dentistry

Sedation Dentistry

“Dental phobia” is not an uncommon occurrence. According to the Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation (DOCS Education), around 30 percent of the population steer clear of dentistry because of fear and anxiety. This apprehension may cause some to bypass important dental care, which can lead to serious oral health issues.

If you suffer from this “dental phobia,” fear no more. Rolling Ridge Dental Care in State College offers sedation dentistry to ease your anxiety. Rolling Ridge Dental Care’s compassionate and attentive care will allow you to relax in comfort as your dental needs are met.

Nitrous Oxide

Commonly referred to as “laughing gas,” nitrous oxide use is prevalent in dentistry due to its consistency and proficiency in removing pain and anxiety. At Rolling Ridge Dental Care, you are given the gas through a breathing mask placed over your nose. Once administered, it will create a numb, euphoric state, keeping you anxiety-free while you are taken care of. When the work is finished, your side effects will soon fade away allowing you to go about your daily business.

Rolling Ridge Dental Care in State College strives to provide you optimal dental care in the most comfortable environment possible. Schedule an appointment today by calling 814-237-1777.
