Nitrous Oxide (Laughing Gas)
Many people feel anxious before and during dental procedures. It's okay to feel nervous or even fearful when anticipating an appointment. We understand that our patients aren't all the same, and we have great news: you have options! In addition to the multi-pronged approach to patient comfort, we are happy to offer Nitrous Oxide also known as Laughing Gas.
Laughing gas, an inhalation sedative, brings one of the safest and easiest sedation techniques to nearly any procedure. Patients from young to old may benefit from a dose obtained just by breathing in and out. While making dentistry much easier for you, it is important to understand that it is not a ‘pain-killer’, and regular numbing medications still prove essential. But it will likely make every part of your treatment more enjoyable if you're anxious.
