If you feel nervous or anxious about visiting the dentist, you are not alone; many people experience dental anxiety. To help you have a more comfortable and pleasant dental visit, we provide nitrous oxide. We are dedicated to providing you with high-quality dental care in a relaxing, friendly environment. Our caring dentists may recommend nitrous oxide for both children and adults who feel anxious about their dental treatment. Nitrous oxide is a gas that you inhale through a mask during your dental treatment. Also known as laughing gas, nitrous oxide is very safe and does not put you to sleep. You will remain awake throughout the procedure, and you will be able to respond to questions and directions from our dental team. Nitrous oxide will help you feel calm and at ease, and you may not remember certain portions of your dental treatment. The effects of nitrous oxide wear off within minutes of the end of the treatment, and you can legally, safely drive after your appointment.
To learn more about how nitrous oxide can enhance your dental experience at Leaf River Dental, we welcome you to call or visit our dental office soon.
