At Boulder Valley Dental Center, we never want you to feel fear when visiting our office. That is why our compassionate dentist and team can safely administer nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, to make your dental procedure feel like a walk in the park. This type of sedation is safe, effective and wears off quickly after you are finished with treatment so you can drive home safely and get back to enjoying your favorite activities in no time.
Dr. Tracey Hughes and Dr. may recommend nitrous oxide if you:
- Struggle with sitting still.
- Want to relax but also be aware of what is going on.
- Experience dental phobia.
- Have a mild to moderate gag reflex.
- Fear any type of pain or discomfort.
- Dislike the sound of dental tools.
For this type of sedation, all we will do is place a mask directly over your nose for you to breathe in a sweet-smelling gas, helping you start feeling more relaxed in a matter of minutes.
If you have any further questions about the effects and benefits of nitrous oxide in Louisville, Colorado, before you meet with our dentist, we welcome you to contact us at 720-637-3137. Our team will be happy to assist you!
