If you are one who is completely terrified of the dental office, there is no need to be afraid us! When you come in for your treatment, we do everything we can to help you feel completely calm and relaxed in the dental chair, and we are happy to do so with nitrous oxide sedation.
Nitrous oxide is a dental sedative that is combined with oxygen. When you come into our office, your dentist will help you feel comfortable in the dental chair by gently placing a small mask over your nose and asking you to deeply inhale for the next few minutes. As time passes, you will feel calm, relaxed, tingly, and light headed.
Although this sedation helps you relax, it does not put you to sleep. You will remain awake throughout your treatment and you will be able to understand and communicate with the dentist. The laughing gas will just calm your nerves and help you feel better in the hands of the dentist. When your treatment is completed, your dentist will remove the mask and the sedation will wear off quickly—quickly enough to let you drive yourself home after your appointment.
Call our office today for more information about laughing gas and what it can do to help you. We look forward to hearing from you!
