Despite that, you might feel anxious about your dental treatment. If you do, dental sedation options can help relax you. For dentistry with soothing sedation, call Douglas A. Callow, DDS at 734-404-7336.

We Use Inhaled Sedation

Inhaled sedation is the most common form of dental sedation – and for good reason. It creates a sense of mild euphoria in most people that work well in overcoming dental anxiety.

We use inhaled sedation because:

  • It is so safe, it can be given to children.
  • It is administered through a small mask you wear over your nose.
  • It is easy to adjust the amount you receive during your treatment.
  • You can still easily respond to instructions or other communication.
  • It wears off within minutes after your procedure. You should even be able to drive yourself home.

Sedation Dentistry Isn’t Just for Anxiety

While inhaled sedation is great at easing dental anxiety, it is useful for other situations as well. Among them:

  • If you experience difficulty getting numb or dislike needles, gas makes it easier for us to administer local anesthesia.
  • Gaseous sedation can make it easier to complete lengthy procedures by keeping you relaxed.
  • It dulls sensitivity that can make it tough to complete a procedure, such as a gag reflex or sensitive teeth.

To find out what sedation options can make in your dental treatment, call Douglas A. Callow, DDS at 734-404-7336. Or use our online form to book a visit to our Plymouth, MI dentist office. You’ll find our office on General Drive, not far from Westland Shopping Center.
