Many people are afraid of the dentist and dental procedures. For some, that fear can be so strong that they actively avoid the dentist. Not only can that be detrimental to your dental health, but your overall health as well.
For those people, we offer sedation options for our patients in Coral Gables and the surrounding Miami communities. The type, method and depth of sedation is always discussed with you prior to the appointment.
One of the sedation treatments that we offer is nitrous oxide. Nitrous oxide is a safe and effective sedative agent that is mixed with oxygen and inhaled through a small mask that fits over your nose to help you relax. Sometimes referred to as “laughing gas”, it can be used to make patients more comfortable during dental procedures. It is not designed to leave you incapacitated so there won’t be any grogginess when it wears off. It just allows you to relax and not worry about the procedure being done.
Dr. Kimsey has provided all forms of sedation in Coral Gables for over 20 years. In addition to applying it to his own patients, he also teaches medical residents its use and has lectured to a variety of dentists groups on sedation application and techniques.
At Raymond D Kimsey, DMD, we are here to help you maintain excellent dental health and to take care of our patients in a comfortable and pain free manner. Contact us today at our Coral Gables office to learn about our sedation methods including nitrous oxide.
