Our dentists may recommend laughing gas if you suffer from dental anxiety. This mild sedative is designed to help you relax and receive care more easily, and it quickly wears off after your appointment so that you can return to your regular activities. Call Arbor Dental Group to make an appointment with Dr. Matthew Strange and Dr. Wes Fichera and learn more about laughing gas in Westminster, Colorado.
Do you ever feel nervous about visiting the dentist? Does your upcoming treatment make you feel anxious? If so, you may benefit from laughing gas (N2O) sedation at our office. Laughing gas is a nitrogen-oxygen mixture that you inhale through a nose mask during your treatment. As you breathe in the gas, you will experience a relaxed or even euphoric sensation. Laughing gas can help you feel calm and at ease throughout your treatment. The sedation is very safe: the effects will wear off within just a few minutes after we remove your nose mask, and you can legally and safely drive yourself home after your appointment.
Laughing gas is a good option for any of our patients who suffer from dental anxiety or dental phobia. If you feel anxious because you are receiving a treatment you have not experienced before, or if you simply dislike the sounds and sights of the dental office, we may recommend laughing gas to help you feel more relaxed. Be certain to discuss your concerns with our dentists and team before your visit so we can help you feel more comfortable during your treatment. We invite you to contact us today to learn more!
