If you experience anxiety or dental phobia, our dentists use Nitrous Oxide, commonly referred to as “laughing gas”, to keep you safe and calm. When Nitrous Oxide takes effect, it gives the patient a feeling of euphoria and relaxation. You’ll be awake during your procedure, but you’ll be calm and stress-free. Another benefit of nitrous sedation is that it wears off quickly – usually the effects will wear off soon after treatment. That way you can enjoy the rest of your day as you normally would.
If you suffer from dental phobia to any degree, or if you will be undergoing extensive surgery, sedation dentistry might be the right option for you. Dr. Nguyen will take the time to discuss your specific needs and come up with a plan that works best for you. Give us a call today to set up a consultation and learn more about our sedation options.
Laughing gas is used most often because a major benefit is that it wears off quickly, allowing patients to drive themselves home and go about the rest of their days as they normally would. We offer this option as part of our commitment to convenient, quality care because we know our patients have busy lives.
