Do you use laughing gas?
Nitrous oxide – laughing gas – is a form of sedation that we use frequently at our Dillon dental office. We have helped many fearful patients get important dental treatment just by using laughing gas.
If you have mild or moderate dental anxiety, nitrous oxide may be the solution you’re looking for. It is a very mild form of sedation, and one of its advantages is that it has no adverse after-effects. Once treatment is finished, you will feel completely normal and be able to go about your normal activities.
Treatment using laughing gas is really very simple. Once we start administering the flow of gas, all you have to do is sit back and breathe. Very soon you will feel a great sense of calm and relaxation. Even though you will be awake enough to know where you are, the activity around you will recede into the background.
It is a very safe form of sedation, and our professional team is fully trained in the proper use of nitrous oxide. You never have to worry that you’re not sedated enough, because a member of our team will be by your side to make sure you are completely comfortable.
Anxiety about visiting the dentist should not prevent you from taking care of your oral health. Please contact our Dillon dental office if you’d like more information about our sedation options.
