Relieve Dental Anxiety
Are you scared of coming to the dentist? Does the idea of lying back in the dental chair fill you with anxiety? Have you put off needed treatment due to your fears? You don’t need to worry about discomfort or pain any longer! At the office of Ghina Morad, DDS, we have a wide array of options for dental anxiety relief in San Carlos, California.
Nitrous Oxide (Laughing Gas)
Nitrous oxide is one of the most commonly used treatments to help a patient relax. Inhaled through a nose mask, nitrous oxide helps you to relax and take your mind off the procedure—they don’t call it laughing gas for nothing!
We are able to prescribe an oral sedative that you take prior to your appointment. Once you’re at our office and it has begun to take effect, you’ll find yourself relaxed, and in many cases you’ll even fall asleep. We do require that anyone choosing this treatment has someone with them at their appointment to drive them home, as it often takes several hours to wear off.
If you don’t need sedation and just want to take your mind off of your dental work, we have movie glasses that you can use while you’re in the chair. These amazing glasses give you a theater-like experience right in our office, allowing you to relax and enjoy your favorite DVD or television show!
Our Excellent Team
More than any drug or technology, our team will help you relax. We make it our mission to help ease you into treatment and will gladly discuss anything relating to pain or recovery that you want to know. When you’re with us, you’re in good hands!
