Nitrous Oxide-N2O (Laughing Gas)
Are you apprehensive about going to the dentist?
Have you put off dental care for years because of dental anxieties?
Would you enjoy having all of your dental needs taken care of and afterwards remember very little about your visit?
You are not alone. In fact, approximately 40 million Americans avoid the dentist because of fear and anxiety, according to the Academy of General Dentistry.
Nitrous oxide is best suited for cases of mild to moderate anxiety. You will feel the effects within minutes and these effects are completely gone within minutes of the gas being turned off after your treatment. This allows you to relax during your treatment and resume your normal activities after your appointment!
Whether you require a single filling or are looking for a complete smile makeover, anxiety-free dentistry can help you achieve optimum dental health in the most comfortable way possible.
