Nitrous Oxide

Do you ever feel nervous about going to the dentist? Does the thought of sitting in the dental chair for a long treatment make you feel anxious? Have negative experiences with other dentists in the past left you with a fear of the dental office? No matter the reason for your dental anxiety, our team at Garner & Nichols Dental is dedicated to ensuring that your experience at our office is comfortable and relaxing. We provide nitrous oxide, which is a form of sedation dentistry, to make certain that you feel calm and at ease during your visits.

Nitrous oxide, also called laughing gas, is a gas that we mix with oxygen. You then inhale this gas through a small nose mask during your treatment. This will help you feel relaxed and wash away your worries; you may even feel euphoric or tingly. Nitrous oxide does not make you sleep, but you may not clearly remember all of the details of your visit. Once we have finished your treatment and stopped the flow of the gas, the effects will wear off within just a few minutes. Nitrous oxide is safe for patients of all ages. If you would like to learn more about how we can provide you with a positive, enjoyable dental experience, we encourage you to contact us today by calling our office. We look forward to caring for you!
