Our practice is dedicated to giving you the most comfortable dental experience. If you are always anxious about your visits to the dentist, nitrous oxide may be able to address your concern. Also known as dental laughing gas, nitrous oxide is effective in reducing anxiety. It is a form of “conscious sedation” and it works really fast.
Once nitrous oxide is inhaled, your mind and body will quickly relax. You’ll stay awake throughout the whole procedure and once it’s done, the substance will quickly leave your body. You’ll be able to drive to your office or home without needing anyone to assist you.
Many people have found nitrous oxide very effective in reducing dental anxiety. Although it is contraindicated for those who are pregnant or have a respiratory condition, it is a safe solution for people who suffer from dental anxiety.
