Having a team of dental professionals who care about you and understand your needs goes a long way toward reducing any anxious feelings you might have about dentistry. We are also pleased to recommend nitrous oxide for nervous patients or those who simply want to relax during their appointment.
Nitrous oxide is a gas that we administer through a nasal mask, and all you need to do is sit back, relax, and breathe normally. It only takes a few moments to feel the effects of nitrous oxide that put you in a very calm and relaxed state. You will remain conscious throughout your procedure and able to communicate easily with your dental team.
When we complete your procedure, we’ll turn off the flow of nitrous and have you breathe pure oxygen for several minutes. By the time you leave our office, you will feel alert and refreshed, and able to return to your usual activities with no drowsy after-effects.
