Do you suffer from dentophobia? Experience anxiety-free dentistry with us at Curtis Couch D.D.SAt Curtis Couch D.D.S located in Thousand Oaks, we understand that not everyone is comfortable in the dental chair. That is why we offer sedation dentistry in the form of Nitrous Oxide, or more commonly known as ‘laughing gas’.
Experience anxiety-free dentistry…Nitrous Oxide is a safe, non-irritating and colorless gas which is inhaled to relax patients and allow them to be comfortable during dental treatments. It has been the main form of sedation dentistry for many years and is completely safe. Patients can breathe on their own and remain in control of their body.
The advantages of Nitrous Oxide…
- The depth of sedation can be altered at any time to increase or decrease sedation.
- There is no after effect such as a “hangover”.
- Inhalation sedation is safe with no side effects on your heart and lungs, etc.
- Inhalation sedation is very effective in minimizing gagging.
- It works rapidly as it reaches the brain within 20 seconds. In as little as 2-3 minutes its relaxation and pain killing properties develop.
