Dr. Marchbanks goes to great lengths to make sure you are comfortable and free from anxiety at your dental visit, but sometimes, nerves get the best of us.
Nitrous oxide is an odorless, colorless gas that can help ease anxiety and the apprehension you may feel about your visit.
It is also sometimes referred to as “laughing gas,” but that’s not generally the effect at all. Instead, nitrous oxide relaxes the body and relieves tension that sometimes comes with a dental procedure.
What about the effects of nitrous oxide?
The wonderful thing about nitrous oxide is that it is a safe solution to apprehension from upcoming dental work. The gas is breathed in through a mask, and once the mask is removed, the gas stops and the effect stops.
Since nitrous oxide does not put you to sleep, there is no recovery period after treatment.
Dr. Marchbanks’ patients can return to work right after their dental appointment.
If nervousness or anxiety is one of the reasons you have been avoiding the dentist, you can rest assured that Dr. Marchbanks has the tools necessary to make your visit more comfortable and less stressful.
