For those patients who like a little extra help to feel comfortable during treatment, Dr. Ali and her Staff have created a unique menu of Comfort Plan Options that are available to you to make your dental experience the very best! Our Comfort Options include:
Nitrous Oxide (Laughing Gas)
Nitrous oxide is a gas that helps you to feel more relaxed and decreases anxiety. The recovery time is very short, so you will be able to drive yourself home. Nitrous oxide is best used for patients with mild anxiety, who will be having a short dental procedure.
General anesthesia produces a state of unconsciousness wherein you are completely asleep during your treatment. It is performed in a surgical center or hospital by an anesthesiologist. If you have a complex medical condition or an extreme phobia, this option may be right for you. Individuals with special needs – physical or mental disabilities, often benefit from treatment under general anesthesia. It can also be the ideal method when multiple procedures need to be accomplished in one visit.
