Are you nervous about an upcoming visit to our office? Whether you have had bad experiences with dental care in the past or simply become overwhelmed by the sights and smells of a dental office, our team may be able to make your visit more comfortable and stress free by offering nitrous oxide (N2O) sedation dentistry. Frequently referred to as laughing gas, nitrous oxide is administered via a mask that is placed over your nose and is inhaled during treatment. The effects of this nitrous-oxygen mixture are often described by patients as a euphoric sensation that puts you in a relaxed state, and they will wear off only a few minutes after removing the mask. Because the effects do not linger, it is safe and legal to drive yourself home after treatment.

Nitrous oxide is completely safe and one of the many ways our team can help accommodate patients with dental anxiety or phobia. If you are worried about an appointment you have scheduled with our team, please reach out before your visit, and we can help you find ways to make our office a more comfortable environment for you or your child. You can call or visit our office in person to discuss your concerns in advance. We look forward to seeing you for sedation dentistry in Downey, California!
