What is nitrous oxide?
Nitrous oxide, which is also known as laughing gas, is a gas that you inhale during your treatment to help you feel more relaxed and calm. We understand that visiting the dentist can make some adults and children feel a little nervous. We are pleased to provide nitrous oxide in Las Vegas, Nevada to ensure that each visit to our office is enjoyable and pleasant. Nitrous oxide is a safe and mild method of sedation. Nitrous oxide will wear off just a few minutes after your mask has been removed, so you can go about your day as normal after your visit. You will be able to safely and legally drive yourself home after your appointment.
Do I need nitrous oxide? Does my child need nitrous oxide?
Nitrous oxide may be right for you if you suffer from dental anxiety or if you simply feel a bit nervous about your appointment. In addition, nitrous oxide is a good choice for patients who have trouble getting numb, who have had negative experiences at the dentist in the past, or who find it difficult to sit still for long periods of time. Call us today at Luth & Heideman Center for Dental Care to find out if nitrous oxide is right for you or your child!
