at Riverside Dental Group, would like to tell you more about nitrous oxide in relation to dentistry.

Nitrous Oxide

You may be more familiar with the term “laughing gas” when talking about nitrous oxide. However, most people don’t so much chuckle as they feel relaxed, warm, and peaceful. Nitrous oxide is administered through a mask and begins to take effect almost immediately. The effects of the gas are painless, and make you oblivious to any discomfort or nervousness from certain dental procedures. Some patients are so nervous about going to the dentist, they might inquire about laughing gas for a regular checkup and cleaning. If you are highly phobic about going to the dentist for any reason, nitrous oxide might be a potential option for your peace of mind.

Understanding Dentists

Not everyone is nervous enough to require sedation for certain dental procedures. Cleanings, fillings, crowns, porcelain veneers – many of the least invasive treatments can be done with no anesthetic, or only a local numbing agent. If you just have a twinge of nervousness, it can work wonders to shop around for a dentist that understands nervous patients. If your dentist doesn’t seem to have the time to listen to your questions and thoughtfully answer them, and that makes you feel uneasy, it may be worth it to go somewhere else. Your Riverside dentists are dedicated to staying in tune with your unique needs so that you can have the most comfortable dental experience possible.
