Many patients fear visiting the dentist, whether it is because they had a bad experience as a child, are embarrassed about the poor state of their dental health, have a strong gag reflex, or dislike the feel of dental tools in their mouth. If you are avoiding the dental check-ups that will improve your oral health, then visit Dr. Greg Atwood for nitrous oxide. This sedation option will help you to feel calm and relaxed while you receive dental care. Call our office today if you want to benefit from nitrous oxide in Odessa, Texas.
Also known as laughing gas, nitrous oxide is a very safe, comfortable, and mild form of sedation for those who want to feel a little more relaxed for their dental treatment. The nitrous oxide gas is inhaled through the nose while your treatment is done. It takes effect quickly, and at the end of the appointment it is flushed completely out of your system after a few minutes of breathing oxygen.
We offer this service to any patient who feels it would make them more comfortable. If you are interested in receiving nitrous oxide at your next appointment, or if you have any questions about sedation dentistry, please call or visit Atwood Family Dental today.
