Do you ever feel nervous about visiting the dentist? Does your upcoming treatment make you feel anxious? If so, you may benefit from laughing gas sedation at our office. Laughing gas, also known as happy gas, is a gas that you inhale through a nose mask during your treatment. As you breathe in the laughing gas, which is mixed with oxygen, you will experience a relaxed, euphoric sensation. Laughing gas can help you feel calm and at ease throughout your treatment. This type of sedation is very safe; the effects will wear off within just a few minutes after we remove your nose mask, and you can legally and safely drive yourself home after your appointment.
Laughing gas is a good option for any of our patients who suffer from dental anxiety or dental phobia. If you feel anxious because you are receiving a treatment you have not experienced before, or if you simply dislike the sounds and sights of the dental office, we may recommend laughing gas to help you feel more relaxed. Be certain to discuss your concerns with our dentist and dental team before your visit so we can help you feel more comfortable during your treatment. We invite you to contact us today to learn more!
