Do you have fear and anxieties about going to the dentist? If you are one of the millions of people with dental anxiety, oral sedation can help. Sedation dentistry can be used for everything from a simple tooth cleaning to invasive procedures. While there are numerous different levels and types of oral sedation, nitrous oxide is the most commonly used.
Also known as laughing gas, nitrous oxide is the least powerful type of oral sedation and is a safe and effective way to finally feel relaxed in the dental chair. Your dentist gives you a mask and you breathe in the nitrous oxide to feel more relaxed, without losing consciousness. The effects of nitrous oxide then wear off soon after your dental treatment is complete and the mask is removed. Contact our dental team to see whether nitrous oxide would be a good option for you today.
