If you suffer from dental anxiety, you are not alone. There are thousands of people who have some form of dental anxiety. At Premier Dentistry in Charlotte, NC we offer many of our patients patients what is commonly referred to as laughing gas, or nitrous oxide.

What is nitrous oxide?
Nitrous oxide is a chemical compound that is a safe sedative agent in the dental setting. It is delivered through a mask placed over your nose. Qualified dental professionals regulate the combination of oxygen and nitrous oxide. It works quickly and is easily reversible.

What are the advantages to using nitrous oxide?
• No after effects
• The ease of controlling the depth of the sedation
• Calming effects can be felt in as little as 2-3 minutes

While nitrous oxide is not for everyone many people use nitrous oxide for long dental procedures and even routine dental appointments. Don’t let dental anxiety keep you from seeing your dentist regularly. If you suffer from dental anxiety nitrous oxide may be a great sedation procedure your dentist may offer.
