Nitrous Oxide

Nitrous oxide or laughing gas has been in dental offices for many years. It is often the subject of many comedic sketches. The exaggerated effects of the laughing gas are what get the "laughs" in those comic episodes.

In our office nitrous oxide is used to calm anxious patients. It works extremely well when used correctly. Too little and there is no effect, too much and anxiety can actually increase. Dr. Dwivedi has extensive training in the use of nitrous oxide as well as all forms of sedation techniques. Nitrous is a very common technique utilized on a daily basis in the office, from small children to anxious adults.

It only takes a minute to set up so ask Ms. Alicia anytime.
