If you get anxious at the thought of visiting the dentist, you are not alone; millions of Americans avoid dental visits because of nerves.
However, putting off dental care can put both your smile and your overall health at risk.
At Iroquois Dentistry in Nashville, TN, we use sedation dentistry to help patients feel more comfortable during dental appointments.
"The Best Dentist’s Office I’ve Ever Been To"
The new office is so insanely nice it’s unreal. The only thing better is the staff themselves, I have loved my visits to Iroquois and it’s the best dentist’s office I’ve ever been to. There is no place in Nashville I would rather be taken care of than here. Staff is amazing, facilities are amazing, Dentists are amazing, you can’t go wrong with it!
I have been going here for years and I will continue to go here. They are great! Cleanings are always quick and the office stays on time. They don’t push unnecessary procedures. They take care of your teeth and if they see something that needs attention they let you know. They are great.
What Is Nitrous Oxide?
Nitrous oxide is one of the fastest-acting and most cost-effective forms of dental sedation. It is a colorless, odorless, tasteless chemical compound. Administered as a gas, it is usually inhaled through the nose and has a calming effect.
Some patients have described the effects as "feeling heavy,” as though they are sinking into their chair, while others may notice slight tingling sensations in the extremities. Under its effects, individuals are still aware of their surroundings but are much more relaxed. We are happy to provide this option to patients that want to avoid IV sedation or sedatives.
