If you’re nervous about any aspect of dentistry, we can make your next visit a lot more comfortable with nitrous oxide. Commonly referred to as laughing gas, it is an effective anesthetic with many benefits for patients. This type of sedation dentistry is appropriate for those individuals who are dental phobic, people with a sensitive gag reflex, and people who require surgery or are scheduled for extended and complex treatments.
Prior to administering any anesthesia we’ll discuss your medical history with you and will ask questions such as whether you or anyone in your family has had a difficulty with anesthetics, if you are pregnant, taking steroids, or if you are on medication for high blood pressure.
If you’re apprehensive about dental visits, the first step is to call. We can work with you to eliminate the discomfort and fear that are often barriers to better oral health.
Please contact us if you have any questions.
