Many people are extremely nervous about cosmetic dental procedures and even with today’s advancements require additional medications to calm their fears. The most often used technique we use is nitrous oxide gas, which is also often referred to as laughing gas. It helps relax patients by inhaling a gas administered through the nose. Many of our patients report that it helps them feel both comfortable and less anxious.
Some patients need to be calmed before they get to the office. In these instances we can prescribe an oral medication to be taken prior to their appointment to relax them.
