Our dentist may recommend nitrous oxide if you have dental anxiety. Nitrous oxide, or laughing gas, helps you to relax and feel comfortable during your appointment so that you can receive the treatments you need without difficulty. Give us a call today at 760-245-7800 to make an appointment with Dr. Shaileshkumar Bhatt and find out if nitrous oxide in Victorville, California, is right for you!
Nitrous oxide is a mild sedative used to help manage dental anxiety and fear. It is provided via inhalation and works to help you relax quickly. Many patients report feeling a floating or euphoric sensation while under the effects of nitrous oxide. Shortly before you begin to receive treatment, our dentist will provide you with a nose mask, and you will be provided with nitrous oxide as you inhale. After your treatment, the effects will wear off quickly, allowing you to safely drive yourself home.
Please note that nitrous oxide is a form of conscious sedation. You will be awake during your treatment and able to respond to our dentist as needed.
Nitrous oxide is a great option for anyone who suffers from dental anxiety and fear, is nervous about visiting Victorville Family Dentistry, or dislikes the sights and sounds of the dental office.
