If you are a person with dental phobia in the Manalapan, NJ area, who has anxiety about receiving dental treatment, we are pleased to tell you that our office can provide you with nitrous oxide/oxygen, or what you may know as laughing gas, to relax you. Nitrous oxide/oxygen is a blend of two gases, oxygen and nitrous oxide. Nitrous oxide/oxygen is given through a small breathing mask, which is placed over the nose, allowing you to relax, but without putting you to sleep.
The American Dental Association and the of American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, recognize this technique as a very safe, effective technique to use for treating adult’s and children’s dental needs. The gas is mild, easily taken with normal breathing; it is quickly eliminated from the body. It is non-addictive. While inhaling nitrous oxide/oxygen, you remain fully conscious and keep all natural reflexes. This is a great tool for apprehensive or phobic dental patients.
