When it comes to dentistry, many patients, both adults and children, find themselves afraid of the sights, smells, sounds, or idea of their procedure. For many, this is because of a bad past experience, and it leads to avoiding the dental office completely. However, oral problems never get better by themselves, so those who do not regularly visit the dentist often find their oral health in a poor state. To help patients overcome their dental fears and anxieties, Desert Dental Group offers effective nitrous oxide dental sedation. Dental sedation is proven to help ease fears, relax anxieties, and help patients get the care they desperately need.
What is Nitrous Oxide?
Nitrous oxide is a colorless, odorless gas that gives patients a relaxed feeling. Often, it is called laughing gas because it helps people forget about their concerns and worries. In the dental office, nitrous oxide is administered via a mask over the nose, and the effects of the sedation occur immediately. Patients will physically and mentally relax, letting their worries disappear, but they will still be in control and able to respond to the dentist. Once treatment is completed and the mask is removed, patients will quickly return to their normal state.
Benefits of Choosing Nitrous Oxide
- Eases anxieties & worries
- Fast to take effect
- Patients remain in control
- Effective for children & adults
- Effects quickly diminish after gas is removed
