If you’re still feeling anxious, nitrous oxide could be an option for you.
Nitrous oxide, often called laughing gas, is a completely safe sedative that helps you relax so you don’t have to dread your visits to the dentist.
The nitrous oxide is administered through a mask. The mask feeds you the right combination of nitrous oxide and oxygen to help take the edge off your nervousness. It won’t put you to sleep and you’ll still be aware of what’s going on around you. You’ll even be able to respond to your dentist or to ask any questions that come to mind. The nitrous oxide doesn’t knock you out, it just helps you feel calm and comfortable during your appointment.
As soon as you take off the nitrous oxide mask, the effects will start to wear off. Within about fifteen minutes, you won’t feel any more of the effects. You’ll even be able to drive yourself home from your appointment.
Absolutely. Leesville Dental Studio uses this tool to help pediatric patients who feel nervous about visiting the dentist. It helps kids relax during their appointment. Not only does this help them during the appointment itself, but it also shows them they don’t have anything to fear when visiting the dentist. This can help them build a lifetime of oral health habits.
