Are you afraid or nervous leading up to and during dental treatments? Does the thought of going to the dentist make you anxious? Do you sometimes consider not going to the dentist at all? You are not alone. There are many people who fear dental procedures and going to the dentist’s office in general. When a patient needs help relaxing and feeling comfortable during a dental procedure, Dr. Spelman and Dr. Orlando may recommend nitrous oxide in Hopewell, New Jersey.
Nitrous Oxide, also known as “laughing gas,” is a sedative that is mixed with oxygen and inhaled through a small mask that fits over your nose. Our dentists can control the amount of nitrous oxide you receive as needed. When used, you may feel light-headed and you may experience tingling in your arms and legs. Nitrous oxide will help you feel more comfortable during dental treatments. It will not put you to sleep. You will be able to hear and respond to our dentists. The effects of the sedative will wear off quickly when the mask is removed. You will be able to drive yourself home after your dental treatment.
