Dental anxiety is a genuine concern that affects millions of people throughout the country. In some cases, it can be so severe that patients actively avoid necessary dental procedures because they fear the pain and discomfort. At Tarpon River Dental, we strive to make your dental health experience as comfortable and painless as possible. That is why we offer sedation options with nitrous gas in Fort Lauderdale!
Nitrous gas, also known as nitrous oxide or ‘laughing gas,’ is a sedative agent used in dentistry to elicit a feeling of calm and relaxation before a procedure. The gas is mixed with oxygen and distributed through a mask - a few brief moments after inhaling the gas, you’ll begin to feel the effects.
Not every procedure calls for nitrous gas, as local anesthetics can often be enough to numb the treatment area and prevent pain during a procedure. However, sedatives like nitrous gas are effective means of calming patients who suffer from severe dental anxiety. If you think your fear of dental procedures might interfere with treatment, you might wish to request nitrous oxide as a means of making the process more comfortable.
