For patients who dislike needles, Dr. Williams can prescribe a pill that you can take about an hour before you arrive for your procedure, but you will need a driver to bring you to your visit. This option lets patients relax and allow the anesthetic to work. When you arrive, you will feel calm and maybe a bit drowsy. Our staff will greet you with a blanket so you can rest comfortably, without any anxiety, while Dr. Williams provides your treatment.
Also used for patients who fear needles, nitrous oxide, or laughing gas, has been in use as an effective dental sedation option for many years and is still used by about 35 percent of doctors today to reduce fear and worry. The gas has no odor or color and once inhaled, goes to work almost immediately to produce relaxation. The effect also wears off very quickly, when the gas is turned off, and patients are safe to drive afterwards.
