Nitrous Oxide Can Make Your Dental Experience More Enjoyable

Dentist in Irving, TX

The doctors at Kids and Grownups Dental in Irving, TX, understand that dental anxiety and phobia can prevent patients from receiving the care they need. Patients suffering with this disorder can receive dental care in comfort with nitrous oxide sedation. Nitrous oxide can also benefit patients who may have difficulty sitting still for long periods of time due to discomfort or other health conditions. At our office, we believe all patients should be able to receive the care they need, regardless of cost. However, advanced sedation methods may not always be covered by dental insurance. For that reason, we offer financing through CareCredit®, Lending Club®, and SimplePayTM to make necessary treatment more affordable.

Nitrous oxide sedation is safe and effective and can be instrumental in helping all patients receive the treatment they need.

What are Dental Anxiety and Dental Phobia?

Dental anxiety and phobia are conditions that affect nearly 40 million people in the United States. While often used interchangeably, dental phobia is more severe and can prevent people from visiting the dentist altogether, even when they are in great need of care. For these patients, the fear of visiting the dentist is more debilitating than the pain they are experiencing.

People with dental anxiety and phobia struggle with fears related to the dentist, such as the instruments and needles used, the smell of the office, and the potential pain they may experience. Fears are often the result of a past traumatic experience. We encourage parents to be careful when discussing their dental experiences in front of their children, as dental anxiety can develop at a young age and affect children long into their adult years.
