At Horizon Family Dental Care, we provide sedation dentistry to patients in Baltimore, La Plata, Clinton and Hanover, MD . Dental sedation is a general dental treatment method that we use to help calm patients during dental procedures. Sedation may also be used for patients with dental fear and anxiety for routine treatment. Additionally, patients with disabilities, movement disorders, or a phobia of drills and needles can benefit from dental sedation.
We understand that it can be difficult for some patients to visit the dentist after a past negative experience. Our professional dental team aims to create a welcoming environment where every patient, regardless of age, feels comfortable. At all of our dental office locations, we strive to provide high-quality, professional treatments as well as positive dental experiences.
Common Methods of Dental Sedation
- Nitrous Oxide: The most common type of sedation is nitrous oxide. Nitrous oxide is also known as laughing gas because it can make patients feel giggly and happy. It is administered by a mask placed over the nose and mouth. Patients also often feel euphoric and comfortable under nitrous oxide.
Our team will discuss your sedation options with you during a consultation to help you decide the best treatment method for your specific needs.
