Sedation Dentistry at Bellingham Dental Arts
Dental treatment can often be stressful for some patients. If you happen to be nervous about your dental visit, please let us know. Our sedation dentistry approach is designed to offer the most fearful patients a safe, comfortable means of receiving treatment and yet, past their fears and dental anxiety. At Bellingham Dental Arts as part of sedation dentistry we offer to our patients Nitrous Oxide inhalation, which is also known as laughing gas. Nitrous oxide which is combination of two gases, Nitrous oxide and Oxygen is administered through inhalation of breathing mask which is placed over the patient’s nose, allowing them to relax as well as remain fully conscious yet keep all natural reflexes.
