Dental Care in a Relaxing Environment
Even though Dr. Rykard takes great satisfaction in his ability to dispense painless injections,
some people are inherently stressed at even the idea of a needle. If you or a loved one breaks
into a cold sweat at the mere thought of seeing the dentist, we have a simple solution.
One hour prior to your visit, you take a pill that we provide to you. You will achieve a point
of sedation that permits you to reply to questions but mostly sleep through your entire visit.
This is perfect for fearful people or those who have a hectic schedule and want to receive all
their treatment in a single visit.
“Laughing gas” – the nickname most people use to refer to nitrous oxide sedation – is regularly
used to obtain a lightly desirable comfort level for treatment. Inhaled through a mask, this type
of sedation introduces the medication into your system by allowing you to simply breathe the
compound in. Then a state of relaxation is induced. Local anesthetic will be given in addition to
nitrous oxide to prevent any pain in most cases.
Call our office at 405-752-2626 to determine how sedation dentistry can make your dental visit comfortable and relaxed.
