Nitrous Oxide

Laughing Gas
Stress, fear and phobia frequently keep people from visiting the dentist.  About half of Americans did not see the dentist last year and many had access.  At SommersFamilyDental, we know that some patients feel nervous about dental visits, so we have created an inviting, comfortable atmosphere where you can relax and receive the professional dental care you need for lasting oral health.  Our entire team will do whatever it takes to make you feel comfortable in our office.

Some patients need extra help to relax during treatment.  We may suggest nitrous oxide to help you relax and lessen your nervousness.  Safe and effective, nitrous oxide( laughing gas) can help patients feel calm and confident while in the dentist’s chair – and it’s safe for children!

With nitrous oxide, patients breathe in a colorless, odorless gas through a mask placed over the nose.  After about five minutes, most patients begin to experience a light and easy feeling that spreads throughout the body.  Your dentist will adjust the dose as needed to keep you comfortable.  Once we stop administering the gas, the effects from the nitrous oxide subside within one to three minutes.
