At Anderson Dental, we know that dental anxiety and phobia keep many people from getting the dental care they need. This leads to severe tooth decay, painful infections, periodontal disease, and tooth loss.
Periodontal disease is especially troubling because it has been linked in studies to sudden stroke and cardiac arrest. It is also associated with Alzheimer’s disease, rheumatoid arthritis, and low birth weight in babies.
Comfortable Dental Care with Nitrous Oxide
For those with dental phobia—or even patients who delay care due to stress—we invite you to reinvest in your oral health. Our gentle team will be with you every step of the way.
If you need extra reassurance, we offer nitrous oxide at our dental office.
Nitrous oxide is an odorless gas delivered through a small nasal mask. It produces feelings of relaxation and detachment to get the dental care you need without the stress.
After your treatment or procedure, we turn off the gas, remove the mask, and you are free to continue your day. Yes, the effects of nitrous oxide wear off immediately following mask removal!
