Anxiety-Free Dentistry

Dental visits don’t have to be stressful. Even if you’ve had a bad experience in the past or feel anxious just thinking about sitting in the dental chair, we can help!

Dr. Potrykus and our team at Delafield Dental haven’t forgotten what it’s like to be a patient, so we always take the time to help you feel at ease in our care. We use state-of-the-art technology to make dental treatments as painless as possible, work at a pace that makes you feel comfortable, and keep you informed and in control every step of the way. We’ve even equipped our office with pillows, blankets, and other modern amenities to make it feel a little more like home.

Oral Conscious Sedation

Oral conscious sedation involves taking a carefully-prescribed sedative shortly before your visit. By the time you arrive at our office, you will feel significantly relaxed. If necessary, we may also administer nitrous oxide before your treatment begins.

  • With oral conscious sedation, you can stay awake while still feeling significantly calm and relaxed.
  • The effects of the prescription sedatives are usually mild. For safety reasons, it is necessary to have someone escort you to the appointment and back home after the visit.

Nitrous Oxide (Laughing Gas) at Delafield Dental

Nitrous Oxide (Laughing Gas)

Nitrous oxide is a blend of oxygen and nitrous oxide gases. Inhaling nitrous oxide creates a sense of well-being and relaxation, which can help individuals who experience anxiety or fear about dental treatment feel more at ease. Nitrous oxide increases your pain threshold and, when necessary, makes the administration of anesthetic injections more comfortable. It is also helpful for patients who have a strong gag reflex that interferes with dental treatment.

  • Nitrous oxide is one of the safest anti-anxiety agents used in dentistry and has very few side effects and risks.
  • Nitrous oxide is non-addictive, and you will remain fully conscious throughout treatment.
  • Administration is comfortable and painless, involving no more than a mask over the nose. This makes it an excellent option for children with dental anxieties or individuals with mental or physical disabilities.
  • Feelings of calm and relaxation are felt almost immediately, and breathing pure oxygen for several minutes after treatment completely reverses the effects.
