Nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, is a form of minimal sedation that can be used during your dental procedure, to help minimize dental anxiety. Nitrous oxide gas is effective and safe for patients of all ages.
Oral Conscious Sedation
Oral conscious sedation is a great option to help manage mild to moderate dental anxiety. We will prescribe a sedative for you to take prior to your dental appointment, and we may combine your sedative treatment with nitrous oxide to help achieve a feeling of deep relaxation. An added benefit is that most patients experience some amnesia, which means you may not remember the details of your dental appointment.
If you feel you can benefit from sedation methods to help you overcome your anxiety, we ask you to contact our office to set up a consultation appointment, to discuss which sedation method may best be suited for you.
