Inhalation Therapy Sedation

Do you tend to feel anxious before a visit to the dentist? Does dental anxiety affect your ability to receive dental care? If so, we may recommend inhalation therapy at your next appointment.

Our practice offers inhalation therapy, also known as laughing gas, to help you feel comfortable during your treatment. When you receive inhalation therapy, you simply inhale a special gas to feel relaxed within minutes! inhalation therapy uses a sedative gas mixed with oxygen that produces a calming, euphoric sendation that lasts throughout the treatment. It is very safe for all patients. Best of all, the effects wear off quickly, so you can drive yourself home after your appointment without the need for any down time.

We suggest inhalation therapy for patients who are fearful or who do not like the sounds or smells of the dental office. Please discuss any concerns with our team prior to your visit so that we can better accommodate you and help you feel comfortable at our office. We would be happy to discuss the benefits of inhalation therapy more in depth so that you can determine if this service is right for you.
