Nitrous Oxide Sedation for the Anxious
Some patients are more anxious than others about dental visits. If you need, Dr. Amy Shoumer’s practice uses Nitrous Oxide, which is when a mask is gently placed over the nose and “laughing gas” is administered. It is a fairly mild solution to your anxiety, and the recovery time is quick; in most cases you will be able to drive yourself hope after your appointment. During your procedure, you will still be awake and able to hear the dentist. If you feel this may be a solution for you, please discuss with our team at your next visit.
