We Can Help with Dental Anxiety!

Nitrous Oxide

Commonly known as “Laughing Gas,” Nitrous Oxide is an odorless gas that is well proven to be a safe and effective way to reduce anxiety while having dental treatment.

If you dread dental treatment, please ask us if this is an option for you!

The advantage of treatment with Nitrous is that you remain totally awake while on this gas, and when treatment is done, there are no lingering side effects. This means that the gas wears off quickly, and you are able to drive home on your own.

What if Nitrous Oxide doesn’t work?

While Nitrous Oxide is a great treatment option for patients with anxiety and dental fear, sometimes other treatment modalities are necessary. In these cases, anti-anxiety drugs also can be prescribed for you if needed. If we do use anti-anxiety medications, however, you will need someone to drive you to and from your appointment.
