We offer nitrous oxide in Scottsdale, Arizona, to help you relax and feel calm throughout your dental appointment. Many people are afraid of the dentist, and that is why Dr. Ronald C. Russo provides this sedative. It helps make all of the patients’ worries and fears disappear.
Nitrous oxide, also called laughing gas, is a safe and effective sedative that is mixed with oxygen. Your dentist will place a small mask over your nose and ask you to inhale the sedative for a few minutes. This gas has a slightly sweet smell and taste, and it will make you feel relaxed and tingly in no time. This sedative will not make you fall asleep; you will still hear everything that is going on around you, and you will still be able to respond. This is a harmless method that gives you a light sensation and allows you to relax and sit with ease while your dentist completes the treatment.
We love our patients and we understand that the dentist’s office can be scary at times, which is why we give you the option of using nitrous oxide. For more information on nitrous oxide sedation, call us now! We look forward to caring for you.
