Free Nitrous Oxide Sedation
We know that not every patient may be "thrilled" about coming to the dentist...but could you imagine never feeling anxious or fearful about your visit again? Sedation dentistry offers just that. It can change the life of patients who have been putting off years of dental work and save your smile.
At Peyser Dentistry, we use Nitrous Oxide (N2O) as a form of dental sedation. Nitrous oxide is a colorless, sweet-smelling gas that you breathe in. After 5 minutes or so of breathing in the gas, you should experience a euphoric feeling that spreads throughout your body. You will feel a bit light headed and often people get 'the giggles' (hence the name laughing gas!).
Nitrous oxide is usually used to take the edge off and is generally used for shorter appointments. This type of sedation is usually selected for those with slight apprehension.
