Anxiety-Free Dentistry

Why We Would Recommend Nitrous Oxide During Your Appointment?

We know that going to the dentist can be frightening for some individuals. It’s called dental phobia, and it’s something millions of Americans experience. At our practice, we use nitrous oxide to help our patients feel anxiety-free and relaxed during their treatment. If you suffer from dental phobia, Dr. Fossum may recommend nitrous oxide after reviewing your medical history.

Types Of Sedation Dentistry At Fossum Family Dental Care

There are several reasons to use nitrous oxide (commonly called laughing gas) rather than complete sedation. It has been the primary way that doctors have helped relieve patients from anxiety. The gas is administered through a face mask, and you inhale it through your nose. As the anesthetic begins to work, you’ll feel a bit groggy and desensitized. Patients who choose to use nitrous are able to resume normal daily activities by the time the treatment is finished.
