Our office is equipped with Nitrous Oxide(also known as “Laughing Gas”) for your comfort. Nitrous Oxide is a safe and effective colorless gas that may be administered to both adults and children. A small mask is comfortably placed over the patient’s nose prior to the start of dental treatment, allowing the patient to inhale the Nitrous Oxide and Oxygen mixture safely and effectively. The patient remains completely conscious, being able to communicate with the Doctor and staff while experiencing a more relaxed state. Patients describe this experience as though they are floating and without worry.
Once dental treatment is completed, the patient is able to return to normal activities with no side effects of drowsiness. If anxiety prevents you from receiving the dental treatment you desperately need, we encourage you to ask your Doctor about the use of Nitrous Oxide. Nitrous Oxide while receiving dental treatment can ease your anxiety and transform your experience to one that is stress-free and pleasant.
