Dr. Ruby Ann Dollins offers sedation dentistry to help you feel more comfortable and at ease in our office. Bel Villaggio offers both nitrous oxide sedation and light therapy technology (the BrainTap machine) to help you feel calm and at ease during your appointment. We also have essential oils, blankets and pillows available for your use.
Nitrous oxide is a mild sedative, and is a great option for helping patients with dental anxiety or fear feel more at ease. This type of sedation consists of a special gas, which is inhaled through a nose mask. Nitrous oxide takes effect quickly, providing you with a relaxed feeling – some patients have described it as “floating” or “euphoric”. After you finish your treatment and stop inhaling the effect will wear off quickly, allowing you to safely and legally drive yourself home afterwards.
The BrainTap machine utilizes light therapy technology to guide your mind from an awake and reactionary state into a more relaxed and stress-free state. This allows you to feel at ease while receiving treatment so that you can control your anxiety and fear and receive the care you need. In addition to giving you a more comfortable experience, the calming and rejuvenating effects of just 10-20 minutes using the BrainTap device help to balance your nervous system so that you leave our office feeling less stressed overall.
