Though Dr. Butler is skilled at providing painless injections to his patients, he knows there are still some patients who become very anxious just at the thought of a visit to a dental office. We can help you forget your fears with oral conscious sedation. By simply taking one pill one hour before your visit, you become very relaxed to the point of being unaware of the work being performed. However, you retain a level of consciousness that lets you answer questions and interact with the dental team. This solution is ideal for those with anxiety, but is also a great option for busy patients who prefer to have more work done in one visit rather than spread out over multiple visits.
We also offer another kind of relaxation method. Nitrous oxide, commonly known as "laughing gas," will let you relax by simply inhaling the medication through a mask. Local anesthetic is often combined with nitrous oxide to eliminate pain in most cases.
