Nitrous Oxide

If you are often overly anxious when going through a dental procedure, at our dental practice we offer nitrous oxide, a sweet-smelling colorless gas made up of nitrogen and oxygen. Nitrous oxide is given through a mask that fits snugly over your nose, about five minutes before the dental procedure.

Also known as laughing gas, it is a safe and well established method to deal with dental anxiety and discomfort. It calms and has a comforting effect even though you remain awake, in control, and with the ability to communicate. It also tends to lessen anxiety, increase a patient pain threshold, reduce an overactive gag reflex and makes time pass more quickly. It is often used in pediatric dentistry.
