Sedation Dentistry

Nitrous Oxide

Some people simply dread going to the dentist. Most of our patients don’t experience this fear because we go out of our way to make them feel relaxed and comfortable. But occasionally, we do see people who get really nervous as soon as they sit down in the dental chair. Other patients have a hard time sitting still or have a sensitive gag reflex, while others have trouble getting numb from local anesthetic injections.

We want to sooth and ease whatever troubles you about your dental visits. We start by making you feel at home, listening carefully to your needs and creating a beautiful, tranquil atmosphere.

But to keep you totally relaxed, we help patients relax using Nitrous Oxide. Nitrous Oxide is also called laughing gas because of the slightly euphoric feeling it causes. We prefer Nitrous Oxide over other sedation methods because it takes effect instantly and can be reversed just as quickly so you can drive or return to work after your appointment.
