Remember that it will take time to adjust to the feel of your new bite. When the bite is altered or the position of the teeth are changed, it takes several days for the brain to recognize the new position of your teeth or their thickness as normal. If you continue to detect any high spots or problems with your bite, call our office at (256) 766-8800 so we can schedule an adjustment appointment. It is normal to experience some hot and cold sensitivity.
Nitrous Oxide is a sweet-smelling, non-irritating, colorless gas that you can breathe in. Nitrous Oxide has been the primary means of sedation in dentistry for many years. Nitrous oxide is very safe. The patient receives 50-70% oxygen with no less than 30% nitrous oxide. The patient is able to breathe on their own and remain in control of all bodily functions. The patient may experience mild amnesia and may fall asleep, not remembering all of what happened during their appointment.
