Visiting the dentist can be nerve-wracking for some people, especially if you are coming in for a new, unfamiliar treatment. Our team at Woodruff Family Dental cares about your comfort, and we want you to be relaxed and reassured during your visit. If you feel that you cannot relax, Dr. Tim Woodruff, Dr. Randy Woodruff, and Dr. Robert Kaloghirou may suggest nitrous oxide to help give you a more positive experience. For more information about nitrous oxide in Jonesboro, Arkansas, or to set up an appointment with our caring, experienced dentists, please feel free to contact our office at 870-972-8190.
Do you ever feel nervous about visiting the dentist? Does your upcoming treatment make you feel anxious? If so, you may benefit from nitrous oxide (N20) sedation at our office. Nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, is a nitrogen-oxygen mixture that you inhale through a nose mask during your treatment. As you breathe in the nitrous oxide, you will experience a relaxed or even euphoric sensation. Nitrous oxide can help you feel calm and at ease throughout your treatment. Nitrous oxide sedation is very safe: the effects will wear off within just a few minutes after we remove your nose mask, and you can legally and safely drive yourself home after your appointment.
Nitrous oxide is a good option for any of our patients who suffer from dental anxiety or dental phobia. If you feel anxious because you are receiving a treatment you have not experienced before, or if you simply dislike the sounds and sights of the dental office, we may recommend nitrous oxide to help you feel more relaxed. Be certain to discuss your concerns with our dentist and team before your visit so we can help you feel more comfortable during your treatment. We invite you to contact us today to learn more!
