Dental Sedation



    To cure unusual anxiety about visiting the dentist, we provide nitrous dental sedation South Tampa to our patients. Also known as “laughing gas,” nitrous sedation is made up of nitrous oxide and oxygen, easing dental fears while simultaneously allowing us to concentrate fully on the procedure at hand.

    When sedated through the use of nitrous, patients many times report feeling numb and feeling a warm sensation throughout the entire body. The arms and legs may also feel excessively heavy, often to the point of immobility. However, these feelings will subside when the nitrous oxide wears off.

    Unlike oral sedatives, sedation dentistry provides much easier regulation for the patient. While a pill or oral liquid is often taken one hour before the scheduled appointment because of its delayed effects, nitrous oxide works much quicker. This makes it easier to regulate during your appointment.

    Sedation dentistry is sometimes referred to as sleep dentistry and we serve many patients throughout South Tampa and Florida looking for sleep dentistry or dental sedation procedures.

    If you have been avoiding the dentist because the thought of dental work scares you, contact us at South Tampa Smiles today to find out more about nitrous oxide sedation dentistry. We aim to make your dental experience as comfortable and relaxing as possible – you shouldn’t have to dread going to dentist.
