Do you suffer from dental fear or anxiety? Our top priority at Prairie Dental is providing you with the dental care you need in a stress-free environment. We help patients feel good about their health care through emphasizing and encouraging patient education. Before treating you, Dr. Bryan Bumpas will talk you through every step of your treatment plan so you fully understand your procedure.
Overcoming Dental Anxiety and Fear
Avoiding routine dental check-ups due to dental anxiety can lead to the development of more complex concerns. Biannual teeth cleanings and oral exams help keep teeth and gums healthy so that further treatment is not necessary. If you have been away from the dentist for a long time, Dr. Bumpas can help you rebuild your beautiful, bright smile. He will help you build a conservative treatment plan that addresses any underlying functional concerns for a lasting smile.
Sedation dentistry is an effective solution for patients who need a little extra help feeling relaxed at the dentist. Sedation dentistry can allow patients who would otherwise avoid visiting the dentist to receive the dental care they need to maintain and enhance their oral health. Dr. Bumpas will recommend nitrous oxide if you are nervous about dental procedures or routine care.
Sedation with Nitrous Oxide
Also known as “laughing gas”, nitrous oxide is administered through a tiny cannula placed below the nose. Because nitrous oxide gas enters the bloodstream quickly, patients feel no pain and will immediately feel relaxed. During treatment, patients remain awake, can respond to speech, and can also respond to touch. Nitrous oxide can be used for patients of all ages who may feel nervous about their dental procedure.
