Manage Dental Fear with Anti-Anxiety Options

We understand that many patients are fearful about going to the dentist or get anxious about dental procedures. We offer oral sedation and nitrous oxide for those who experience dental anxiety before or during treatment. Dr. James Lamb has been serving patients for over 16 years and offers these two calming options at his practice, in addition to local anesthetic. These options can completely change the dental experience for many patients and minimize dental anxiety, which is why we recommend it to those who are hesitating to continue with their treatment plan.

Experience Our Calming Dental Care

Dr. Lamb performs a number of minimally-invasive procedures that do not require any dental anxiety options at all. Most patients experience mild to no discomfort during treatment and heal relatively quickly. Still, we offer calming options to those who may be more sensitive than most or those who have had a bad experience at another practice in the past. We offer three types of options to prevent dental anxiety: oral sedation, nitrous oxide sedation, and local anesthetic.

  • Oral Sedation

    involves taking anti-anxiety medication before the visit so you arrive feeling very calm and relaxed. It is easier for us to work with a relaxed patient and we can numb the treatment areas as needed. You will feel slightly groggy after treatment so someone will need to drive you home.

  • Nitrous Oxide

    Also known as ‘laughing gas,’ is a popular choice among our patients with mild to moderate dental anxiety. You simply inhale the gas for a few minutes and will start to feel very sleepy and tired. Most patients do not remember their treatment when they are under this type of anti-anxiety option. Once we stop the gas, its effects also disappear so you can wake up and feel normal shortly after treatment. There are no side effects and you can get on with the rest of your day after your visit.

  • Local Anesthetic

    Is used to numb only certain areas of the mouth. Anesthetic is injected into the cheek or gums to numb the area we will be treating. You may feel the effects of the anesthetic for an hour or two after your dental visit but it will wear off quickly.

If you have dental anxiety before a dental visit or procedure, do not avoid the care you need, consider our calming options. Learn more about your options by scheduling your appointment with Dr. Lamb today.
