Relaxation Dentistry in Las Vegas
Options for relaxation dentistry in Las Vegas help to ensure a relaxing, calming, and pain free experience. We offer three levels of relaxation options, minimal, moderate, and deep, depending on the level of anxiety a patient is experiencing.
Oral Relaxation Options
We offer anxiety reducing medications to relieve anxiety without the need for needles and intravenous tubes. If you have trouble getting numb, you will feel much more relaxed with this option. During the procedure, Dr. Balle will check your vital signs to ensure that everything is performed safely.
Intravenous Relaxation Options
IV conscious relaxation is administered through the Oral Surgeons office. It is a valuable tool for those who have difficulty relaxing naturally and involves administering drugs intravenously.
Nitrous Oxide (N2O)
This has been a mainstay of relaxation dentistry for decades and is also known as “laughing gas.” You will feel more relaxed within five minutes of inhaling this colorless and odorless gas which spreads feelings of euphoria throughout the body. Once your procedure is complete and the gas has been turned off, you go right back to feeling normal but will remain relaxed.
Dr. Balle will use this in combination with some of the other relaxation techniques and may need to numb certain parts of your mouth by injecting medicine into your inner cheek or gum tissue. The numbing sensation typically lasts several hours and wears off naturally.
Please do not worry about dental treatment in our practice. If you have a very high fear of going to the dentist, have a bad gag reflex, or have very sensitive teeth, talk with Dr. Balle about options for relaxation dentistry in Las Vegas.
