Using Nitrous Oxide to Relax
If you are nervous, afraid, or worried about visiting our office, please know that you are not alone. Dental anxiety is a valid concern and affects a number of adults worldwide. We know that it can be tempting to avoid our office for routine hygiene examinations and any treatments we may have recommended. This can lead to additional treatments and lengthy visits to our office. We offer a solution to help you get the dental care you need while keeping you relaxed and comfortable — nitrous oxide. Nitrous oxide, more commonly known as laughing gas, keeps patients calm during their cleanings and procedures. It is beneficial to adults, children, as well as patients with special needs.
Nitrous oxide is a colorless and odorless gas that is administered through a mask worn over the nose during treatment. One of the biggest benefits of nitrous oxide is that there are no lasting effects once the gas is no longer being administered. Patients remain awake during the procedure and are free to drive themselves to and from the appointment.
Nitrous oxide is beneficial to patients with:
- Fear of dental care
- Complex or lengthy treatments
- Sensitive teeth
- Fear of needles and shots
- Past traumatic dental experiences
If you are located in Spring Hill, FL or the surrounding area and experience anxiety or fears when coming to the dentist, please call our office today to schedule an appointment that will be relaxing and worry free. We look forward to helping you get the dental care you need while you are relaxed and comfortable.
