One of my best dental visits ever! Just went in for a cavity and after a very short wait, The assistant, Tracy, prepped me up with the numbness swab and the nitrous mask. She noticed that I was breathing out from my mouth, as I believe I always have. I thought that was the best way as I always thought that breathing out through the nose into the mask caused the next breath to be partly my own CO2 breath and pushed the nitrous back in the tubes and all.
Tracy took the time to explain that there was an exhaust tube and by breathing out back into the mask did not affect the next breath at all. That made a world of difference in the experience for the rest of the visit. I was well numbed for the shots and barely felt a thing. Even in the midst of the cavity work and all I felt I reached one of those nirvana states for a bit.
Dr Shaghasi, as always, was pleasant, focused, attentive to details and all and I left feeling like I was on cloud 9, in a safe and aware kind of way, of course. BRAVO Dublin Corners Dental!
