Relaxation Dentistry FAQ’s
- What is nitrous oxide?
You might know it as “laughing gas.” It is a colorless gas that Dr. Markowitz can give you to help you relax. It is very safe when it is administered professionally and is efficient in reducing the anxiety in many dental patients.
It is often used to sedate a patient for a short period of time, or in unison with another sedation medication.
- What is oral sedation?
Sometimes called “sedation dentistry” is administered by taking a small pill one hour prior to your appointment. All body functions remain normal and the person is able to breathe on their own. It works for most patients allowing them to relax and have little or no memory of their dental appointment. Some patients are so relaxed that they sleep right through their dental appointment. Oral sedation allows Dr. Markowitz to complete more dental treatment of higher quality, in a shorter period of time. A four hour appointment will feel like a fifteen minute one.
- Is oral sedation safe for me?
The history of oral sedation has been especially safe as well as very effective. Dr. Markowitz uses very common medications that are extremely safe and widely prescribed. Your vital signs will be constantly monitored from the moment you arrive at the office through the appointment, and until Dr. Markowitz is comfortable with you leaving. In fact, he and his whole dental team are highly trained in safety and emergency procedures, making the dentist office one the safest places you can be!
