Reduce Anxiety at the Dentist with Nitrous Oxide

If you get anxious about going to the dentist, you are not alone! Many people can feel stress before and during their appointment, and there are many reasons for that. 

We wanted to let our patients know that your comfort is our priority, and as such, we take every measure we can to ensure you're comfortable and not stressed.

Top 5 Tips to Reduce Anxiety at the Dentist!

Anxiety-Free Dental Care

While there are many things we do to help our patients limit their anxiety about their appointment, one thing that we do offer is Nitrous Oxide to help them relax.

What is Nitrous Oxide?

Nitrous Oxide is a time-proven, safe alternative to sedation techniques. It's very simple, with no needles. We use a face mask to administer the gas to help your body and mind relax. 

The biggest advantage is that it has low potency, which means it doesn't stay with your body very long, so you can make a quick recovery.

Common Misconception About Nitrous Oxide

Many people this that Nitrous oxide is used to numb your teeth and reduce pain. However, that is not true; it just helps the patient relax.

Are There Any Risks Associated with Nitrous Oxide?

There have been so many studies done on the effects of Nitrous Oxide, and in general, there are very low risks. With the combination of some medications, it can be potentially risky, but not in the dental world as we don't administer other medications. 

This is also why it helps to discuss your general health profile with your dentist.
