Have you been putting off dental treatment because you have a tendency towards dental anxiety? Is your smile paying the price? If so, our team at Advantage Dentists is here to help! Drs. Umansky, Nino, and Zafer are happy to offer nitrous oxide sedation for our patients who struggle with anxiety during dental procedures.

While laughing gas parties using nitrous oxide was a popular pastime of the British upper class during the late 1700’s, dentists began using it in the 1860’s to relax their patients. Nitrous oxide helps you relax and feel calm while staying fully awake during your treatment. This colorless gas is mixed with oxygen which you breathe in through your nose while your team is taking care of your smile.

After our dentist administers the sedation, you will still be able to hear and respond to questions and instructions during the procedure. You can sit back, relax, and breathe comfortably through your nose while we take care of you. You will feel peaceful and calm during the treatment. Common sensations may include light-headedness, tingling in your arms and legs, warmth, euphoria, and sleepiness. All of these effects wear off moments after the mask is removed.

So whether you are having your teeth cleaned, or having a tooth extracted, please know that we are committed to your comfort and safety during your time with us. At Advantage Dentists, our nitrous oxide sedation will help you get the treatment you need with the comfort you deserve. We invite you to give us a call today at our location nearest you to schedule your next appointment with confidence!
