Dr. Elizabeth Dimovski Dental
During your periodontal treatment we do everything possible to create a comfortable and relaxed environment best suited for each patient.
We use local anesthesia to prevent pain in the area of your mouth where treatment is being preformed. The local anesthesia blocks the nerves that sense or transmit pain, which numbs mouth tissues in the area. Topical anesthetic may also be applied to numb the area in preparation for administering an injectable local anesthetic. Injectable anesthetics are used in procedures as fillings, crown lengthening, extractions, implant preparation or treating gum disease.
For the more nervous or anxious patient we also offer Nitrous Oxide also known as “laughing gas.” It is a safe and effective sedative agent that is mixed with oxygen and inhaled through a small mask that fits over your nose to help you relax and make you feel more comfortable during your treatment. It is not intended to put you to sleep. You will be able to hear and respond to requests, questions and directions. Your will be asked to breathe normally through your nose, and within a few short minutes you should start to feel the effects. You may feel light-headed or a tingling in your arms and legs. Ultimately, you should feel calm and comfortable. The effects of nitrous oxide wear off soon after the mask is removed.
Depending on the procedure, you may also need a pain reliever after treatment. Analgesics are used to relieve pain and can be broken into two groups: non-narcotic and narcotic. Non-narcotic pain relievers are the most commonly used drugs for relief pain following dental treatment. Narcotic analgesics act on the central nervous system to relieve pain and are used for more severe pain.
