At Refresh Dental in Berkeley, your comfort is very important to us. We will always go above and beyond to ensure you are at ease in our care. Our gentle and friendly staff understands that you may feel anxious about your dental treatments, so they take the time to discuss your procedure, answering any questions you may have. If you would like, they will even explain each of the tools that will be used throughout your dental treatment. We are here to serve you.
For some patients, dental treatments can cause extreme anxiety. We never want our patients to feel stressed during a dental procedure, so we offer nitrous oxide and oral conscious sedation.
Nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, can effectively help individuals who experience anxiety or fear about dental treatment feel more at ease. Nitrous oxide is one of the safest anti-anxiety agents used by dentists. It is non-addictive, and it allows you to remain fully-conscious during your treatment. Feelings of relaxation are felt almost immediately after inhaling nitrous oxide, and breathing pure oxygen for several minutes after a treatment will completely reverse the effects of nitrous oxide.
Oral conscious sedation is a prescription pill you take about an hour before your dental procedure. When experiencing moderate to severe dental anxiety, this form of sedation can help you relax and feel comfortable during your dental treatments.
Please share any of your concerns with us, so that we can make your dental visit as stress-free as possible.
