Did you know that our office offers Nitrous Oxide? Sometimes referred to as “laughing gas”. Perhaps for those of you who have not had the best dental experiences in the past, this can be a great option to help relax you during dental procedures. Aside from our already friendly staff, the TV’s in each room, neck pillows, massage chairs and sometimes even a malt or shake after more difficult procedures, some patients still need a little extra help to relax.
N2O2 was first used in dentistry in 1844. Today its uses have been expanded to many other things like whipped cream, auto racing and even scuba diving. The way it works here at the office is simple. Once you arrive to the office, we’ll recline you back to a comfortable position and place the nose shield on. Once you’ve taken a few deep breaths in, you’ll begin to feel much lighter and relaxed, making your whole appointment much more enjoyable. Before we release you, we turn the oxygen which will make you feel normal and alert. You will be fully capable of driving once you leave the office.
If you think you may be interested in using this for any of your next appointments, call our front desk staff to discuss this option. We are happy to do anything to make your next procedure as enjoyable as possible!
