Natick Family Dental Offers Nitrous & Sedation Dentistry To Help Patients Overcome 'Dental Phobia'

Oral sedation dentistry allows patients to have a stress- & pain-free dental experience.

Natick, MA /PRNewswire/ - Natick Family Dental is pleased to introduce sedation dentistry into its practice.

Up to 30% of patients suffer from dental phobia – to the point where they avoid seeing a dentist and fail to receive preventive and routine care (DOCS Education). To significantly reduce, if not eliminate, the fear and anxiety associated with dental treatment, Natick Family Dental is now offering sedation dentistry.

Through a variety of oral sedatives (triazolam, lorazepam, and/or hydroxyzine), nitrous oxide (commonly referred to as "laughing gas"), and intravenous sedation, patients will feel sleepy and relaxed throughout their procedures. Rather than being "knocked out," this form of sedation allows them to remain responsive during the procedure but to have little-to-no memory of it. Patients' blood pressure and oxygen saturation are monitored throughout the entire process.

"The option to receive sedation has changed the lives of many of our patients – enabling them to overcome their dental fears and to have a positive clinical experience," says Dr. Rachana Vora, President of Natick Family Dental.
