Dental anxiety affects millions of people and, in some cases, it can be bad enough to keep some from going to the dentist altogether. Aversions to dentistry are usually rooted in fear of the pain associated with dental procedures. However, these fears are misplaced because modern sedatives have made most treatments painless. At SmileBuilders, we look forward to giving you a pain-free and relaxing dental experience with nitrous oxide in Monsey, NY!

What is Nitrous Oxide?

Nitrous oxide is a chemical compound that is also commonly referred to as ‘laughing gas.’ This gas is administered through a mask right before we begin a procedure. After a short time, you’ll feel like you are in a ‘twilight’ state that will leave you capable of responding to questions but not unconscious.

Do I Need Nitrous Oxide?

Nitrous oxide is a safe method of sedation that can benefit anyone undergoing minor dental surgery or similar procedure. In some cases, dentists offer this option even for non-intrusive treatments for those patients with severe dental anxiety as a way of making the process easier for both the patient and the dentist.

What are the Benefits of Nitrous Oxide?

  • Allows for a painless dental experience
  • Calms and reduces anxiety
  • Make procedures go smoothly
