Nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, is a colorless blend of oxygen and nitrous oxide gases with a pleasant, sweet smell and taste. It is one of the safest anti-anxiety agents used in dentistry and has very few risks and side effects. Inhaling nitrous oxide creates a sense of well-being and relaxation, and it is used effectively to 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.
For patients with severe dental anxiety, we offer oral sedation. This involves taking a prescription sedative shortly before your visit. By the time you arrive at our office, you will feel significantly relaxed. If necessary, our doctors may also administer nitrous oxide before your treatment begins.
With oral conscious sedation, you can stay awake while still experiencing a significant feeling of calm and well-being. The medications are carefully prescribed, and usually the effects are mild. However, it is necessary to have someone escort you to the appointment and back home after the visit.
AND MUCH MORE!
Patient comfort is always in the center of our care. We are equipped with patient televisions/Roku, noise-cancelling headphones and cozy blankets and much more!
