If you suffer from dental anxiety, you are not alone. Some estimates say that up to 15% of Americans suffer from dental phobia. That’s over 30 million people!
Our goal here at Reflections Dental Spa is to provide you with such a soothing, calming experience that your dental anxiety melts away. But a lot of patients need a little extra help relaxing, and that's where nitrous oxide comes in.
Nitrous oxide is a gas that's mixed with oxygen and delivered through a small nasal mask. You don't have to do anything but sit back and breathe normally while the nitrous helps you gently relax.
One of the advantages of nitrous oxide is that it will not put you to sleep. Nitrous is designed to deliver short-term relaxation, which lasts just long enough to help you stay calm during your procedure. Our team is trained to safely administer nitrous, and we will monitor your progress throughout your appointment.
Our patients particularly like nitrous because there are no lingering effects. When we stop administering the gas, the effects dissipate quickly. You can return to work or school, and you do not need a driver to get you to and from your appointment.
