Oral Anxiety Meds/Nitrous Oxide

Nitrous oxide, or laughing gas, is the most frequently used method for easing mild to moderate anxiety. Administered through a small mask that fits over your nose, it is an effective way to calm anxiety, raise your pain threshold, and even make time seem like it's passing quicker than usual. As the gas begins to work, you will become calm, although you will still be awake and able to talk with the dentist.

At the end of your appointment, you'll resume breathing regular oxygen, and all the effects of nitrous oxide will disappear, so you can resume your normal activities immediately.

“I just took my 4-year-old son here for the first time yesterday. The staff were so friendly and he was made to feel very comfortable! He went back with no fear and we were able to go see how he was doing mid check-up. He was so excited to get his goody bag after his cleaning and he left that office with a very positive view of the dentist! Beyond happy with our experience!”
