Benefits of Nitrous Oxide

It is common for people to feel uncomfortable about visiting the dentist, whether you dislike the sound of the drill or have anxiety from previous experiences. At Park Slope Dentistry, we want our patients to be able to relax while they are sitting in one of our chairs, so we offer nitrous oxide to those who are anxious. Nitrous oxide is more frequently refer to as laughing gas and is used in most dental offices.Dentist Brooklyn NY

Calming- Many people are nervous and anxious when they are sitting in the chair. When laughing gas is used, it can have a calming effect on the patient.

Minimal Sedation- If nitrous oxide is used on you at the dentist, it usually wears off quickly, so you would be able to drive yourself home. The amount you receive depends on the type of procedure.

Replaces Needles- It is very common for people to be afraid or dislike needles, especially a needle in their mouth. Nitrous oxide is inhaled through a mask, so there are no needles required.
