If you have a fear of the dentist, an appointment can be extremely stressful, especially if you’re having a more complex procedure. At Lake Park Dental, we want your experience to be as comfortable and stress-free as possible. Nitrous oxide is one of the multiple sedation options we offer to make that happen.
You may have heard of the more commonly used name for nitrous oxide – laughing gas. This sedative is mixed with oxygen to make you feel completely care-free throughout your treatment.
We will administer it through a small mask that goes right over your nose. Next, we’ll ask you to slowly breathe in and out until you begin to feel fully calm and comfortable.
Sedatives like nitrous oxide are not a requirement for your dental procedures, but it will make the visit much easier for both you and the dentist. You won’t have to worry about dealing with your gag reflex or any pain during the treatment.
So, if you feel like you’re someone who could benefit from the relaxed state caused by nitrous oxide, please let us know.
