Most patients want to feel as relaxed as possible in the dentist chair. At Menta Dentistry, we understand wanting a pleasurable experience, which is why we offer nitrous oxide in Laredo, Texas, to help our patients relax. Nitrous oxide is commonly known as laughing gas, which is inhaled through a mask during your treatment. It is a mixture of both nitrous oxide and oxygen and can inhibit a relaxed, euphoric feeling.
You may feel apprehensive about breathing in a gas, but nitrous oxide is completely safe and proven to help all ages with nervousness or anxiety. Many children benefit from laughing gas as it helps them to remain calm and still during their treatment. Furthermore, the effects of nitrous oxide are only short-lived and dissipate in just a few minutes. As a result, you can drive home safely while feeling functional and coherent.
To help you feel confident in our sedation services, you are welcome to discuss your concerns or apprehensions with our team before your next visit. So, we invite you to call Dr. Labbe, Dr. Staat, and associates at 956-242-0223 to learn more about this treatment. Our dentists want to give you a positive experience with the most comfortable techniques available.
