Dental Sedation

At Mangrove Bay Dentistry, our team understands that many patients feel anxious when it comes to dental visits. We offer anti-anxiety comfort measures and sedation options, such as nitrous oxide (laughing gas), for patients who may need some relaxation help while they undergo dental procedures. If you have been delaying regular checkups, teeth cleanings or needed dental treatments because you fear going to the dentist, you can feel confident that our experienced staff understands your needs and will take care of you.

We focus on treating each patient's needs individually. It's important to us to spend time with each and every patient so we can get to know you and address any concerns you may have. Please share any information with us that you believe is relevant to your dental care including:

  • Sensitivity or pain
  • Strong gag reflex
  • Past dental procedures
  • Date of your last dental appointment
  • Anxiety associated with dental visits

Many patients may feel apprehensive about receiving dental anesthetic and worry about experiencing pain during their procedure. Our staff are compassionate to your needs and want you to feel as comfortable as possible when you enter our office. We welcome you to ask any questions you may have about your oral health or treatment options.

Even though we pride ourselves in providing comfortable, painless dentistry, you also have the choice of having a medically sedated appointment. For patients with a strong gag reflex or a strong desire to be fully relaxed we can administer nitrous oxide (laughing gas) while you are in the dental chair.

What Is Nitrous Oxide?

At Mangrove Bay Dentistry, we see many patients that benefit from a stress-free experience in our dental office through the use of dental sedation. If you are pregnant, have COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease) or some other pulmonary diseases, or are taking certain drugs, nitrous oxide may not be right for you.

Before beginning treatment, we will take a complete medical history, including your use of both prescription and non-prescription medications. Dr. Toan Tran is an expert in sedation administration and your safety is our number one priority. We'll work with you to develop a treatment plan that keeps you comfortable and relaxed throughout your procedure.
