If you are anxious about your dental visit or have a sensitive gag reflex, Dr. Heck uses nitrous oxide as a safe and effective method to reduce anxiety. The gas is eliminated from the body quickly after it is turned off and there are no lasting side effects. Administered through the nose you will stay awake and continue to interact with Dr. Heck and the staff throughout your procedure.
We also offer oral medication to gently relax you and eliminate anxiety. You will recall that Dr. Heck worked on you however you won’t have any memory of the work being done. You cannot drive following use of Halcion; you must arrange transportation home. It is imperative that your driver remains in the office the entire time of your treatment.
