More than 50% of North Americans do not go to dentist. The number one reason, according to the American Dental Association, is fear. Pittsburgh’s Top Dentist Dr. Kiran Kaur of Kaur Dental of Fox Chapel says, “While routine dental care offers many benefits to patients, few enjoy the process of attending dental exams and cleanings. And when it comes to undergoing dental treatment, such as the placement of a filling or tooth extraction, many patients experience some level of anxiety before and during their appointment. To relax patients during their dental visits, Kaur Dental of Fox Chapel now offers nitrous sedation in Pittsburgh. It is a great way to reduce or eliminate anxiety for the fearful patient. It is safe, effective, and convenient!”
Nitrous Oxide, also known as laughing gas, is the most widely used sedative for dental treatments. It is administered through a mask where the patient breathes in oxygen mixed with Nitrous Oxide. The amount of sedative that the patient gets can be increased or decreased by the dentist as needed. The best thing about Nitrous Oxide sedation is that it wears off quickly after the treatment and the patient can drive back home on their own. Kaur Dental of Fox Chapel is offering sedation dentistry with all dental treatment.
