Do you feel nervous about going to the dentist? Does the thought of sitting in the dental chair for a longer treatment make you feel anxious? Have you had bad experiences at the dentist in the past that leave you feeling reluctant to receive the care your smile needs? If so, nitrous oxide sedation may be a good option for helping you feel more comfortable and relaxed at our office. Nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, is a gas that you inhale during your treatment. By simply breathing in the nitrous oxide through a small nose mask, you can feel more at ease. The nitrous oxide is mixed with oxygen, and our dentist can easily adjust the level of nitrous oxide to optimize your comfort. Nitrous oxide will not make you sleep, but you may not clearly remember your entire experience at our office. This is a very safe and mild form of sedation, and our team will carefully monitor your safety throughout the treatment.
After your treatment, the effects of sedation will wear off within just a few minutes. You can even safely (and legally) drive yourself home following your appointment at El Cerro Dental. If you have any questions about the benefits of sedation dentistry or nitrous oxide in Danville, California, we welcome you to contact Dr. Gary Cappelletti and our team today. We are committed to providing you with a positive, enjoyable dental experience.
