Are you apprehensive about dental treatment? If you are, believe me, you're not alone. Many patients have an overwhelming fear of the dental office, and therefore have neglected serious dental conditions. It's to those patients that I wish to convey how much we want to help you overcome that fear.
A safe and effective means of anxiety reduction is the use of Nitrous Oxide (some call it laughing gas). Nitrous Oxide will place you in a relaxed state but still allow you to communicate with the dentist. After the procedure, you quickly return to 100% of consciousness which allows you to walk out and drive your car away as if nothing ever happened. But for those with such fear, just showing up to the office is a major barrier. If this is you, rest assured that your first visit could simply be a consultation to discuss your fears and dental concerns. After that, we'll take it one step at a time to get you comfortable at our office. My staff is a compassionate group of individuals who are ready, willing, and able to be there for you during your visit.
Nitrous oxide, or “laughing gas” helps many anxious patients relax, making their dental treatment more pleasant.
