Oral Sedation Dentistry

If you suffer from dental anxiety, Dr. Hickey might recommend oral sedation. These anti-anxiety pills tone down activity in the parts of your brain that cause you to feel anxious or afraid.

Nitrous Oxide (Laughing Gas)

Unfortunately, dental anxiety can keep many patients from visiting the dentist for checkups and much-needed dental work. If dental appointments make you anxious, Dr. Hickey can administer nitrous oxide (commonly known as “laughing gas”) to help you feel more at ease during your visit. At Sound To Mountain Dental, laughing gas is administered using a mask, allowing you to feel more at ease within minutes.
