Our friendly dentist and dental team understand that many patients suffer from dental anxiety or even just feel a bit nervous about their treatment. For our anxious patients, we are pleased to provide conscious sedation. Conscious sedation can greatly enhance the dental experience for both children and adults, especially for apprehensive adults. Sedation may be right for you if you suffer from dental anxiety, if you have difficulty sitting in the dental chair for long periods of time, or if you would like to feel more comfortable during a long treatment.
At the dental office of Dr. Jensen, we offer nitrous oxide, commonly known as laughing gas, for conscious sedation. Dr. Jensen offers this service to you to help you feel comfortable during your dental visit. While you are under sedation, you will remain awake but you will feel very calm and relaxed. Some patients even experience floating or euphoric feelings, which is why nitrous oxide is also known as laughing gas. Nitrous oxide is a light form of sedation and is very safe. The effects will wear off almost immediately following your procedure, and you will be able to safely and legally drive yourself home after your appointment. We invite you to call our office today to learn more about nitrous oxide in Shawnee Mission, Kansas, and to start your journey to outstanding dental health.
