Do you suffer from anxiety during a visit to the dentist?
Dental anxiety affects many patients. Some patients find that mild to moderate sedation helps them keep calm during their visit. Our office offers nitrous oxide sedation to patients to help reduce anxiety.
Nitrous oxide, or “laughing gas” has been used as a sedative in dentistry for over 100 years. It provides a mild form of sedation that has a calming effect. It has few side effects and it won’t put you to sleep. Nitrous oxide has no lingering sedation after your treatment is complete.
We administer nitrous oxide with a small mask that fits over your nose during treatment.
If you are apprehensive about your appointment with us, call our office to discuss sedation dentistry options.
