Nitrous Oxide (Laughing Gas)
There are patients that while not literally “scared to death” to go to the dentist, it still is not their favorite place to go. Dr. Stylos also offers another option to this patient that doesn’t need full Sedation Dentistry, and an alternative to having a sleepless night before a dental visit. Nitrous oxide, often called “laughing gas”, is one of the most popular and safest ways to help remove the edge that nervous patients need to more comfortably get their dental treatment. Since the 1800’s, this odorless gas has been administered to patients to primarily relieve dental anxiety. Patients will begin to feel effects in as little as two minutes, which last only a few minutes after its administration has stopped. Talk to us today about how nitrous oxide can relieve any doubts you may have about undergoing a dental procedure.
